Tunnel Beaches Wedding Ilfracombe.

Wow! What an amazing venue to play your violin. I have just returned from my road trip to Ilfracombe and the stunning Tunnels Beaches hotel. This was definitely a day for the funky electric violin. I played One day like this for the bride's entrance, God only knows and All you need is love for the signing of the register and then Viva la Vida for the exit of the bridal party. I then accompanied the drinks and champagne reception with the sea and the cliffs in the background. I love my job so much!

Open Mic sessions at Dawlish Arts Festival

This is the start of a busy weekend of gigs in and around Devon.  I spent the morning down in my home town of Dawlish playing as part of the open mic sessions on the bandstand.  It was a lovely event playing live music to the people of Dawlish, residents and holiday makers alike.  I put my classical head to one side for a bit and played some contemporary tunes on electric violin including Bohemian Rhapsody, Tunes from La La land and A star is born, viva la vida, No Place Id rather be and a bit of Ed Sheeran - Perfect!  Next stop is Rock Choir at the arts festival tonight.  Exciting!!

New Repertoire!

I have just been practising some new repertoire.  There are some really beautiful melodies in the scores from 'La La Land' and 'A Star is Born'.  Sounds great on the Electric Violin with a hint of reverb!!

A real honour to play today.


I have just had the honour to play my violin at a wake in Bradninch. There was a lovely atmosphere at the occasion and I played a wide variety of genres while guests chatted, had a drink and a reminisce. I was asked to play a bit of Clannad which was lovely and we ended on Darude - Sandstorm! Sounds great on electric violin!!!

Successful New Years Eve 'Fiddle' Gig

I had a wonderful New Years Eve playing for a private party in a quiet Devon village out near the Moors.  This was a solo gig on violin so it was great to play some gorgeous Celtic tunes as well as some rock and pop as we approached midnight.  This gig also gave me the opportunity to play my new electric violin and 'Bohemian Rhapsody' was certainly a highlight!  Always garaunteed to get the party guests singing!  Mama.........
