Craig Sutcliffe's profile picture
Pianist
Bingley
Public liability insurance of £2 million

Craig is more than a "man with a piano", he has a unique gift of playing the piano or organ for any occasion. Being sensitive he is able to sense the mood of the room, listen to the feelings of people and channel music for your special celebrations. Whether it be for your wedding day, christening, birthday party or a tribute to celebrate the life of a loved one. Craig is happy to perform many genres of music whilst also specialising in his own compositions. Craig's life as a pianist/organist began following a visit to Blackpool Tower Ballroom aged 4 years old with his parents. After seeing the wonderful Wurlitzer organ at the tower he pronounced to his parents that he was going to learn to play and subsequently his journey as an organist began as he started lessons aged 4. Craig has a vast amount of music theory knowledge and has spent many hours studying harmony, form and the style of music with the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, London. Craig is also a very accomplished composer and an excellent song writer and would be more than happy to create an individual piece of music for your special occasion. Craig loves playing modern pop songs in an acoustic style and as a keen musical theatre fan also enjoys playing many "songs from the shows" In 2021, Craig has been filming Piano Scenes on the popular Channel 5 TV show - All Creatures Great and Small.

Reviews

From customers:

Samantha (, 1 year ago

Amazing. Played everything I asked beautifully and made our day perfect. Thank you so much

Steven (, 2 years ago

Craig performed at our wedding back in July 2019. Craig played for our guests entering the room and leaving the room. Craig also took the time to learn our wedding song Amazed by Lonestar. He made our day really special to us by going the extra mile and playing a flawless set. His setup wasn't intrusive, but could be heard throughout our ceremony room. This gentleman has a gift and I would not hesitate to hire or recommend him to friends, family and strangers. Craig’s professionalism and commitment to providing a magical service is outstanding, even the owner of the hotel asked for Craig’s details as they were very impressed with his musical talent. Thank you Craig for making our day as magical and memorable as possible.
