Do you travel?
Yes. We are based in Manchester, UK but we perform all over the world. We charge travel expenses for venues outside Greater Manchester.
What kind of music do you play?
We perform live, and play anything from baroque to jazz to popular. Our classical look can add the finishing touch to any event.
We arrange many of the pieces we play ourselves, including string arrangements for bands. Click here for a repertoire list.
Will you play with my band/on my recording?
Yes. Please click on the “sessions” page.
Will we be able to hear you in a room full of people?
Volume is no problem because we have acoustic and electric cellos. Please discuss this in advance of your booking.
Do you ever play with more than two cellos?
We have lots of fabulous cellist friends, and can provide a cello trio or cello quartet.
What are your rates?
Every occasion is different, depending on travel and duration of a performance. There are no hidden charges, and all bookings are finalised in writing so everyone is clear about what to expect. Typically, a wedding booking starts at around £280.
