About Lily Kerbey

Yorkshire based singer & guitarist with over 10 years of experience playing at weddings, parties, venues and events
Singing guitarist
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I am an experienced performer who plays acoustic covers of well-known hits ranging from Soul, Pop, Rock to Jazz and Motown. I am experienced in selecting set lists that best fit the venue or event be that calm, relaxing folk all the way through to sing-along able anthems that get the whole place joining in. I have a fully equipped and transportable PA system which is perfect for any venue small or large. I have been performing around Yorkshire and beyond for the past 10 years in venues such as The Grand Hotel in York, The Ivy in Harrogate and Botanist bars including Sheffield, York and Leeds. I've also performed at private weddings and parties including Jeff Brazier's cliff-top wedding in Portugal.

Lily was absolutely fantastic! I’m so happy we booked her, she brought a great vibe to the wedding and was so open to all my requests. Would 100% recommend her for any future events!

Lily was amazing, from enquiry to the actual day. Her communication was fantastic, and she gave us an extensive list of songs to choose from and was happy to learn some new songs for us too. Lily tried to get to know us more ahead of the day and personal touches meant we felt she really cared about making our day special, rather than just ‘another job’. All of our guests commented on how amazing she sounded and Lily added massively to making our day so special. Thank you so much. Jemma and Phil xx

Lily was fabulous! And played a wide variety of songs and kept all my guest entertained during my drinks reception. My only wish is that I’d booked her for longer as I hardly got to hear any whilst I was getting my pictures done. I would 100% use Lily again if I had a function.

We had the pleasure of having Lily play for us on Sunday at Ma B’s at the Royal Oak in Ossett. She very much reminds me of Eva Cassidy, with the voice of an angel that is as close to perfect as you can get, she'll give you goosebumps. I can't recommend her highly enough if you require a singer for either a wedding or a venue! I loved having her play for us.

We booked Lily having seen her perform at another pub. It was the first time we had ever had a live music night and after having her perform it definitely won’t be the last! We have booked Lily in for two other dates already and I dare say there will be more! She’s an excellent performer, she mingled well with the customers and really created an amazing atmosphere!! Everyone asked when she was coming back. We can’t wait to have her back!

Please check my add-on services for any songs not on my set list which you would like me to learn.
