Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

I can provide a full Irish set, or a set specific for an Italian restaurant. I have started to source Bollywood tunes to add to my repertoire.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I would always try and accommodate clients if time allowed.

How much time do you need to set up?

15 minutes. My equipment is wireless and I am able to play indoors or outdoors in dry weather.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

You are welcome to pick whatever you like from the set list. I also welcome new suggestions and will research them and advise you if they are suitable for solo violin.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I bring all my own equipment.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song doesn't appear in my set I am more than happy to include it. I just request you give me notice so I am able to source and learn the music.

Katie provided music for my wedding. She played us into the ceremony and then continued to perform whilst my guests enjoyed welcome drinks. I would highly recommend Katie as an artist.

Katie was superb and had a wonderful rapport with her audience. She had everyone dancing to her Irish tunes in particular. Will definitely book her again and have no hesitation in recommending Fiddlestix.
