It's great to be back!

It is April 17th 2021 and it feels so good to be back playing live music for real live people at a wedding.  This was my first visit to the very beautiful Baeconside House in North Devon which looked absolutely stunning in the Devon sunshine. Congratulations to Abigail and Chris on a beautiful ceremony.  It was small and intimate which I really like.  The ceremony was outdoors with the beautiful countryside as the backdrop.  Abigail and her bridesmaids walked into 'A Thousand Years' by Christina Perri.  I played 'Perfect' by Ed Sheeran and 'Can't help falling in love with you' by Elvis during the signing of the register. The bridal party then danced out to 'No place Id rather be' by Clean Bandit.  I then continued to play a wide range of music to accompany the drinks reception and photos.  I love this bit because it gives me the chance to try out some new arrangements.  I managed to try out 'Sweet child o mine' by Guns and Roses here.  We know it works for string quartet and goes down well but it also works for solo violin as well although note to self - ' Don't get too over excited in the big solo at the end - I nearly broke my E string!'. Great gig, great to be back.  Im now looking forward to a very busy summer programme both with the Exe Valley String Quartet and also as a solo musician.
