About Jordan

Modern, classical acoustic Violinist bringing joy to hearts and souls through mellow, warm tones. Perfect for romantic occasions.

I'm a classical and contemporary violinist based in Edinburgh, Scotland. My style is mainly classical with a modern acoustic touch, varying across all genres. I am a graduate of the Royal northern college of music. Some of the highlights of my career include performing on the Carnival Conquest cruise ship from March-September 2019 playing everything from Mozart to songs by Ed Sheeran. Playing violin is my absolute joy and passion, and I love nothing more than lifting people's spirits through music. I am available for all weddings, Funeral services and events throughout the year.

Booked Jordan to play at our weddings after a last minute cancellation. Jordan played exceptionally and left wedding guests in awe. A professional and courteous violin player that I would book time and time again without hesitation.

Jordan was very professional in the way he set himself up and worked with our venue, but most of all, what a talent. We had sent several requests of songs and Jordan not only performed them well, but the quality of his work actually made many of our guests ask who he was and said it touched them. We had a magical day, and Jordan was the icing on the cake. If he is available, you have to book him.
