About Gill

Gill is a classically trained violinist who plays irish music. Available as a duo with a guitarist for tunes. Fast, slow and imbetween!
Violinist
Bournemouth
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Gill has been playing violin since she was 12, having previously been taught piano by her mother who was a professional pianist. She was leader of her first orchestra by the age of 15 and was in the Hampshire County Youth Orchestra whilst at college. One of their guest conductors was Simon Rattle when he was only 23. It was Riverdance and The Corrs who started her interest in Celtic music and she was fascinated to hear instruments she had never accompanied before such as uilleann pipes, tin whistles, bodhrans and accordions.

Celtic Confusion have played for us at Norden Farm Campsite a number of times during the summer of 2019, and prior to that. We received great feedback from our customers about the music and it was ideal for campers of all ages. The communication from Gill was fantastic and we would highly recommend them and look forward to seeing them again in 2020.

I would just like to say thank you again for last Saturday, really excellent stuff!! Among lots of lovely tunes I particularly enjoyed The Monaghan Jig and Crested Hens. I also think both sound good on the whistle. I am also enjoying the CD and hope to whistle along to that when I get the chance. Anyway, it was good to meet you both and I hope to catch you somewhere soon. Please come back to Hythe!! In fact I overheard people talking about Celtic Confusion down the village this morning.
