String duo
Aberdeen
An exciting all round versatile duo! A classically trained Violin Duo or add our Piano, Guitar&Fiddle skills for an experienced ceilidh duo.

Stuart and Fiona met and have been playing together in two wedding ceilidh and covers bands for the last year and a half. Both musicians also have at least 15 years of experience playing classical music as soloists, in duos, trios, quartets and various orchestras. They have played for many concerts, weddings, parties and other special and important events. In January 2018 Stuart and Fiona decided to combine their experience to form duo Cheviot together, and are excited to offer a fantastic range of music and a great sound whatever the occasion!

Delightfull duo. Very good performance; took the time to learn a piece of music requested by the groom at no extra charge. Would certainly recommend them.

I would recomend Stuart and Fiona's violin duo for any special event. The two violins complimented each other and created a beautiful sound. Experienced musicians who made the process of booking them and organising music for the day very easy.

Murray J, 1 year ago

I heard Stuart and Fiona perform ceilidh at a Burns supper this year. Lovely harmonies and great use of effects pedals to change sounds to give a bit of variety. It was helpful they were both very capable dance callers.
