“Jo played the violin whilst my guests were arriving for a birthday party. For an hour she chose a delightful variety of light classics and popular songs, judging the occasion to perfection. It’s a beautiful sound that she makes, smooth and classy, and we all genuinely enjoyed the experience, at times not knowing whether to listen or chat! I cannot recommend her highly enough which is probably why a member of my family promptly booked Jo to play at her daughter’s wedding.” –
Mr J. Robinson, party host
“Jo’s exceptional performance at our wedding made an already special day even more magical. Jo’s professionalism and attention to detail was second to none: from helping us to choose the perfect pieces for our day to playing her music with class and passion. If you are looking for a stunning performance to set your wedding apart from the rest, I would strongly recommend you speak to Jo” – Mrs D. Rouse, bride
“Jo’s playing was a great contribution to our big day! Everyone commented on what a lovely touch it added. With a combination of some of our favourite songs intermingled with a beautiful selection of classical pieces, she turned a great day into a perfect day. She is a real sweetie to deal with as well!” – Mrs D. Durno, bride
“We were delighted with Joanne’s playing at our wedding. She did a wonderful job and everyone at our ceremony enjoyed her playing. She played a wide variety of music that kept everyone entertained before and after the ceremony. We were particularly charmed with our niece dancing to the Celtic fiddling! We would wholeheartedly recommend Joanne to anyone wanting a violinist to play at a special occasion.” – Mr. M. Gudgeon, groom
