Do you have different line-up options?
I play as a violin and piano duo I also play as a solo harpist
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I always try my 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 me know
How much time do you need to set up?
I usually set up about 1 hour before the performance time
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes you are welcome to pick from my setlist and talk through what will work for your event.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes. I bring my own instruments and sound system.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If a song isn't included in my set list there may still be a chance I already know it! I am happy to consider new requests also.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
My clients love my ability to improvise, bringing a unique but polished performance every single time. The combination of my classical knowledge and training with my ability as an arranger and songwriter means that I can tackle most material and make it sound great on violin.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I have played at Wembley Stadium, the O2 Arena, Brighton AMEX Stadium, Concorde 2, Koko and the Wigmore Hall as well as countless UK and international venues with the various bands I play in.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
I come from a classical background, sing in rock bands and play a wide variety of other music from Irish to Americana, so my influences are hugely varied. At the moment I am enjoying learning pieces by older songwriters such as Irving Berlin and Burt Bacharach.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
One of the biggest jobs I did recently was arranging a Dvorak theme to perform as a violin duo at Wembley Arena.
