Ten Strings and a Bow - Cello and Guitar Duo - Gabriola
I love bringing the elegance and beauty of the cello to the special events in people’s lives, especially weddings!
A diverse range of music is at my fingertips from traditional favorites such as Pachelbel’s Canon and Beethoven's Ode to Joy, to Standards like “What a Wonderful World”, “Blue Moon”, to Celtic Music such as "Down by the Sally Gardens", "Greensleeves", "Scarborough Fair", to contemporary songs such as, “In My Life” and other Beatles classics, “From This Moment” by Shania Twain, “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder.
I like to meet with you personally and communicate closely with you until you feel we've chosen the perfect musical selections for your special day.
As a classically trained musician, trained at the Royal College of Music in London, England, I have tremendous versatility. I have played professionally in the UK, US and on Vancouver Island for the past 25 years in a variety of ensembles and a multitude of venues from The Royal Albert Hall in London, The Railway Club in Vancouver, The Port Theatre in Nanaimo to Sooke Harbour House in Victoria.
I’ve had the pleasure to play for some celebrities along the way, Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, Bill Gates and various politicians and dignitaries. I have also have shared the stage with many musicians including Placido Domingo, John Williams, The Irish Rovers, 54-40, Jim Byrnes among others…
I specialize in the intimate, unique wedding, but want you to know that I have the energy and musical vitality to fill any space!
Also accompanying me to any event is a sense of style, professionalism, and a gratitude for the privilege to be taking part in such a significant moment in your life!
