About Christopher

Violinist

Verified profile
A Northern Irish Composer, Arranger, Tutor, Singer-Songwriter, Multi-Instrumentalist and most dominantly a Performer.

Northern Irish, Leeds based Freelance Musician Chris Heron is a Composer, Arranger, Tutor, Singer-Songwriter, Multi-Instrumentalist and most dominantly a Performer. Having been classically trained, he broke into the popular industry in his late teens and adapted his playing style which included improvising, a skill which most violinists in the classical world are not commonly associated with. Exploring further, the loop-station became part of his niche and was able to compose music for himself, creating the sound of an acoustic duo, string quartet, and cinematic orchestra. It allows the ability to simultaneously perform and record live while using Guitar, Strings, Vocal Harmonies and Lead Vocals.

Absolutely spot on! No complaints at all and everyone loved the performance.

From other customers:

Liz P, 4 years ago

Chris is stupendous. At a recent wedding guests were demanding quiet so they could listen to his music. Classical style with a modern twist that should be resounding round the Albert Hall!

Patrick S, 3 years ago

Chris is a talented, creative and lively violinist whose enthusiasm for music is contagious. He has a proactive and charismatic style of musical leadership that just makes you want to play! He’s restored my confidence and eagerness to be involved in string ensemble playing and improve my violin playing – he is an excellent role model
