Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Our trio line-up is violin, viola, and cello but Saffron Strings are also available as a duo or quartet.

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

This is not something we do since we usually just take a very short comfort break between sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually arrive at the venue about 45 minutes before we're due to play so that we can set up and liaise with the venue staff.

Can you roam around while you perform?

In common with most acoustic string groups we prefer to stay seated whilst we perform.

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

Yes, we're happy to draw up a playlist just for you.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

We are happy to play in the ambient lighting of the venue.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our play list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £20 for this service to take into account rehearsal times and commissioning a suitable arrangement for strings.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Too numerous to mention but including Buckingham Palace!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We try to have our own take on the music of other artists so no-one really stands out!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Olympia and Buckingham Palace are pretty high profile!

Iain R, 1 month ago

On behalf of my wife and I, we just wanted to thank Saffron Strings for absolutely nailing the music on our day. The Stand By Me entrance music was perfect. We obviously had a lot to take in, but watching back various videos, it's the icing on the cake! We've also had various guest compliments on the quality of the string music (Game of Thrones was particularly popular!). We would definitely recommend you to friends and family! Once again, thank you from both us, you helped make our day unforgettable! Iain and Vicky

Wedding, 2002 years ago

We just wanted to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding. It was so lovely and all of our guests commented on how lovely it was. I also really appreciate you managing to find wonderwall to play as we walked back down the aisle at such short notice. We would recommend you to any of our friends.
