Simple strings were amazing on our wedding day!

Simple Strings recently performed in concert as part of a Parkinson's UK fundraising initiative. Their fantastic set of varied musical styles was a joy to listen to and a real highlight of the event.

I worked with Simple Strings for my friend's wedding where I was performing in the ceremony. I wrote the arrangements, which were beautifully brought to life by the quartet, and they made performing in the ceremony so special - they were a joy to work with in rehearsals and on the day, and I can't recommend them highly enough.
