Scott was fantastic! We spoke on the phone prior to booking and afterwards also, and remained in contact up until the day. He provided us with a superb ambience and beautifully played in the entrance of the bride. Everyone loved hearing his music and it really was the perfect backdrop. Thank you again, Scott.

Scott played for our tv production, at our BBC Roadshows as part of the BBC ONE campaign, Restoration. He was a first class musician, and everyone commented on the dashing young man in the tuxedo! The perfect background music for our special events. Totally hassle free. He made the whole process a complete delight. I would recommend him for any event, party or wedding.

This evening truly demonstrated the appeal of live performances by talented artists. We were appropriately entertained by Scott Robertson a classical guitarist who transported us to sunny climes with great renditions by Albeniz, Fernando Sor, Terrega and others as well as some flamenco made famous by Paco Pena.
