Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Although solo options include the options of both cello and voice, I also work with a mandolin player who can be available at additional cost.

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

I can usually be very flexible and would encourage clients to keep in touch with any changes as soon as possible.

How much time do you need to set up?

For wedding services, 20 minutes is perfectly fine, but for amplified performance 30-40 minutes is ideal to set up equipment and check levels.

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

We can discuss the set list in advance, and if there's enough time I can produce a bespoke arrangement of a song of your choosing, be that classical or contemporary.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I travel with everything necessary apart from a chair.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, as long as there is sufficient time, I can learn your choice of pieces.
