Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients enjoy my song selection - 'modern but non cheesy' - my ability to learn requests for their ceremony, and my communication and preparation before the event means clients can just relax and enjoy their special day.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Alnwick Gardens The Baltic, Gateshead Gisborough Hall West Park on the Green, Glasgow Sandburn Hall Harvey Nichols, Leeds The Marriott, York Merrydale Manor St George's Hall, Liverpool Moorlands Inn, Halifax Tithe Barn at Bolton Abbey Crathorne Hall Bowcliffe Hall Wortley Hall The Gamekeeper's Inn, Skipton Wylam Brewery, Newcastle

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

So many, but to note a few - Corinne Bailey Rae, Lianne la Havas, Regina Spektor, Gabrielle Aplin, Joni Mitchell, Adele and Norah Jones.

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

I don't like to think of my gigs as high or low profile, but the most impressive venue I've played at was probably St George's Hall in Liverpool - absolutely beautiful.

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

Let me know as soon as anything changes and I will do my best to be flexible and adapt to your timings to help things run as smoothly as possible.

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

This is not something I offer at the moment.

How much time do you need to set up?

I like to arrive at a venue around 1 hour before performance time, and setup/pack down time is usually around 20 minutes.

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Yes of course - as long as the piano is in working order and in tune, then I'm happy to play on it!

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

You are more than welcome to choose songs from my set list in advance. Alternatively, I can choose songs suitable for the audience and mood at the time.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?


Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in my set list, there may still be a chance I already know it or can learn it for you. You are welcome to request up to 5 songs (with at least one month's notice) at no extra cost.

Shona is absolutely incredible! We're so grateful for her hard work including learning new songs, sending us recordings and even collaborating with the Groom's sister for a performance in our ceremony! She was a joy to listen to on the day and really lovely to work with, too. Thank you Shona, you wonderfully talented human!

We are so glad we booked Shona for our wedding. She is incredibly talented and had everyone in tears during our ceremony. Afterwards she provided great background music for our drinks reception which suited all tastes. Throughout the booking process she was easy to contact and professional. We will be recommending her to all our friends and family.
