Mesmerising performance. Captivated by the drama and the violin really drew you in for the last moments. Performance of XENOS by Akrma Kahn

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

What people have loved most is the gentle and elegant atmosphere we can bring to occasion. We are not fussy or to in-your-face and can add an other-worldly feel to a dinner or afternoon meal.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Julia Fisher and Ann Sophie Mutter.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Do you have different line-up options?

Our Line up is as Follows: Duo: Violin and Piano or Harp String quartet: Violin, violin, viola, cello Folk fusion group: Violin, drummer, singer, guitar

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

No I am afraid we do not offer this - we only do acoustic performances.

How much time do you need to set up?

10 mins :- we only need two chairs and we shall provide music stands.

Can you roam around while you perform?

No we cannot as the harp/piano is fixed and we will read off music. But we can move between sets if you wish us at difference locations.

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

Of course! Any requests though must be made a minimum of 48 hrs before the day of the performance.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

All our equipment is basic. The only issue usually is the moving of the harp which we have considered in our transportation costs.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes of course you can we love doing arrangements ! We can discuss on the phone what you are looking for - however 3 days prior the event is the cut off for any requests.
