About Stravair

Acoustic duo
Edinburgh

Stravair is a Guitar and Violin duo based in Scotland, offering bespoke wedding, events and ceilidh entertainment tailored to suit each client's needs. Ran by a couple, Aaron, and Laura, who are both highly trained professional musicians each with 15 years experience on their instruments and bringing their own style to the act. Laura, a Royal Conservatoire of Scotland graduate, adds the precision technical ability expected being the classically trained, immensely skilled musician that she is. Aaron, a University of West London graduate, now professional session musician, brings feel and improvisational skill from the jazz, rock, and blues scene he has spent his life in. Both styles and skill sets fused together create an exceptional sound, rich in traditional feel that dares to be experimental when the time is right. Since Stravair's formation in late 2022, the duo have rapidly risen to the top of the events entertainment scene with ease, performing for high-end clients such as TV Host, Phil Machugh, and for the re-opening of Andy Murray's Cromlix House. Due to each partner's immense skill and experience within the industry, Stravair offers a huge repertoire in order to give clients and extensive choice of event type; ceremonies, drinks receptions, ceilidhs, restaurant entertainment, party band - Stravair can really provide it all, and in record time.

Aaron and Laura are really super musicians and their repertoire was exactly right for our small family event. They are very friendly, they communicated really well with us beforehand and discussed the repertoire, and they also were very flexible when we needed to change the start time as snow had delayed us. They played a lovely mixture of different genres, which we all loved, and even coped with us all singing along some of the time! Stravair made my mum’s 90th birthday party really special. Thank you Aaron and Laura.
