I engaged David Jaggs to play at a friends 60th birthday party. David was very good at discussing the repertoire prior to the event. The aim was to create an atmosphere enjoyed by a diverse group of people spanning a large age range from the very young to the very old. We were more than pleased with the result, beautiful music beautifully played added an extra dimension to the evening.
