LESLEY THOMPSON SMITH
A Fiddler/Violinist For Every Occasion
Add an air of romance and class to your occasion. Solo fiddle, classical violin or an ensemble of musicians will create a beautiful atmosphere for you and your guests. I have 20 years experience of performance at a professional level in the UK and worldwide.
I play wedding background, and for receptions, corporate events and parties. I have an extensive repertoire of classical pieces and traditional fiddle tunes: dances and airs, to suit any occasion.
As a piper and whistle player too, I have the ability to switch between instruments for a change in texture.
I work with many wonderful musicians, and can provide ensembles with a wide range of line-ups: fiddle/violin, viola, guitar, Scottish harp, whistle, pipes/smallpipes, saxophone, keyboard, accordion, djembe, bodhran etc.
Pricing: £170 for the first hour, £30 each additional hour thereafter.
TRADITIONAL FOLK MEDLEY
I can play a range of tunes, mixing the toe-tappers with more mellow choices as background to your event. I'm happy of course to include requests, but equally happy to compile my own set list so you don't need to worry about it.
I have a large repertoire of classical pieces, from the lighter to the heavier end, including many of the standard wedding favourites. Requests are always welcome, but I am very experienced in gauging the audience and selecting music to suit.
Playing for the arrival of the bridal party; playing the bride down the isle; during the signing or any other special moment you can think of. Choose a tune or a piece you love! I can help by suggesting some popular choices.
