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.
