Public liability insurance of £5 million
London-based violin duo with wide-ranging experience performing at functions in the UK.

Hello, we are the London Violin Duo. We perform all over the UK, and are passionate about bringing live violin music to a wide variety of functions. We cater for all occasions, from intimate gatherings to weddings and corporate events and have a great deal of experience of working with clients to understand their requirements and provide music to suit the occasion. We are classically-trained musicians, but we have a variety of styles in our repertoire. We play tangos, folk tunes, pop songs and many others besides, alongside classical repertoire. Our repertoire is expanding all the time, so do ask if there are particular pieces you'd like to hear that aren't listed. We are happy to arrange specific pieces that are not already part of our repertoire. While most of our events take place in Greater London, we have travelled throughout the UK and regularly perform within the home counties. We can play unamplified, or for larger gatherings we can bring a partable amp or plug into an existing PA system. We are more than happy to play outdoors; all we ask is that we are positioned in the shade, since direct sunlight can damage our instruments, and obviously it must be dry. We normally wear all black, but we can wear alternative colours or styles to fit in with a particular theme or colour scheme if desired. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to check availability. We look forward to hearing from you. Helene and Eve

It was a joy to have Eve and Helene at our wedding; they managed to delight our guests with both folky and classical pieces despite our venue being quite noisy with poor acoustics! Their cheerful presence was much appreciated by all and communication was swift and easy.
