day, I would definitely recommend you!"
Richard and Melanie Bailey, Hazelwood Castle, October 2012

"Many thanks for your playing at Katherine & Andrew's wedding. It was much appreciated by us all. I am reliably informed that the guests were most impressed with your performance, particularly while they were waiting for the bride to arrive! May I wish you all the best in your future career."

Mr Lupton-father of the bride, Mottram Hall, August 2012 

"We engaged the Quartet to play at a National Trust donor event at Lyme Park this autumn. From an event coordinators perspective I would like to highlight how easy and accommodating the quartet were to deal with before the event. They were keen to understand the purpose of the evening and interpreted our requirements very well on the night. The quartet played with real character and our guests commented through out the evening on how much they enjoyed the music and that it really enhanced their experience of the setting. We will definitely be using them for future events at National Trust properties."

Aletta Welensky, National Trust - Lyme Park, Cheshire

"Amy played (beautifully) a Bach violin solo at our son's marriage service and the duo performed at the reception with a more secular repetoire. They are thoroughly professional artistes with style, verve, zest as well as excellent performance skills."

MP Lord Maclennan - North Scotland
