I've seen Rob play on many occasions. His versatility is outstanding. He plays classical music, folk music, bluegrass & Americana all with equal verve & great ability. He always conducts himself professionally & has a way of endearing himself to an audience both with his musicianship & his personality. Whatever you need a violinist for, Rob will fit the bill.

Last M, 2 years ago

Rob was amazing! I could spend all day listening to him. He befriended my 6 year old, kept in contact with regard to choice of music. Rob was polite and friendly throughout. I would recommend him for anyone thinking of music for their event. (10 / 10) Sam Towning
