Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes, we perform as a duet however we can both perform as a soloist at any point during our set, using solo violin repertoire, solo guitar music (particularly nice for quieter background music moments) and as a duet as we most often perform.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We will always try our best to be accommodating to any changes in event timing, which usually are easily arrangeable with communication up to a few days before the event.

How much time do you need to set up?

5 minutes for set up and tuning

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Of course

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Always

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Certainly, if asked in advance to prepare one or several requested songs/pieces.

Lovely to meet such fine young musicians, Jacques and Marco who performed at Jane & Matthew’s wedding at Ardgowan House. They arrived promptly to setup and they played outside during the ceremony in the secret garden, it was beautiful.
