Biography I started playing the violin at age 8 and from the very first lesson I knew this was what I wanted to do. My love of the violin and hard work in the ensuing years allowed me to win many awards and gain a scholarship at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. After graduation I quickly started playing with professional orchestras, and have worked with a range of artists and played in amazing venues including the Royal Albert Hall. I have worked for many different clients and accompanied well known artists in the South West. I am passionate about composing and have a love for blending musical genres to create new and exciting sounds.

Claire and Jerry were invited to play at our Wedding in Devon in September and it was an absolute pleasure to have them on our special day. While we were happy to only have Claire on the Violin were very glad that Jerry was also available and the composition of the 2 made all the difference to the vibe of the event. Our guests loved having them play and their automatic choice of songs were on points with the feeling of the room. They were more than happy to learn our (somewhat unconventional) requests of music which added to the personal touch that is important with a wedding. Their professional, skillful and friendly service was a talking point for the day and we only wish that we could have had them there for longer. Could not rate them highly enough. Thank you Claire and Jerry :) - Love Colin and Cassie Malkin
