Do you have different line-up options?
This profile is for booking the duo of Elaine Samuels (vocals / guitar) and Martin Ash (violin / vocals). It is also possible to book Elaine solo, and the Kindred Spirit Band (five-piece with flute / sax / vocals, bass / vocals and drums; mostly playing original songs).
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
Timings can be adjusted after booking, but please notify us well in advance, especially if the booking is a daytime one or you want us to arrive earlier, in case we have another engagement the same day. Generally it's not a problem though.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes, we regularly do this.
How much time do you need to set up?
We would ask for an hour to set up, though it doesn't always take that long. Do bear in mind that includes a soundcheck, so if you don't want us playing bits of songs to check balance and level shortly before we start our set, allow time for us to do that in advance and then leave a gap or play a playlist until the actual set time!
Can you roam around while you perform?
Not very much due to vocal mikes! However, Martin can roam on a wireless belt pack for his violin; or we can perform with a battery-powered amp for guitar and vocals and acoustic violin, and move around between songs including outdoors.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Yes, we are always happy to cater for requests of songs we already know.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Yes. We are fully self-contained so long as you have mains power!
Can you learn song requests before the event?
We may well know your request anyway, so please do ask! If we don't know the song and are keen to have it, we would ask for four weeks' notice to learn it, and we may need to add an extra fee for the service.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Cheerful, friendly and easy to work with manner; charismatic high-energy performances, particularly from Martin; and a well-chosen repertoire of songs people know and that fit the occasion.
