Vintage String Quartet

After years of affectionately listening to old records featuring the strings of Nelson Riddle, the soundtracks from the silver screen and with a shared passion for all things old and unique, not to mention an abundance of experience playing for weddings and events, these four lovely ladies were inspired to step away from the traditional and form the Vintage String Quartet. The group have crafted a delicious repertoire of tunes spanning from the 1930s to the 1950s and with the dresses to match, these 4 starlets cannot fail to add a little vintage glamour to your special occasion!

Also availabe as a String Trio or Duo with double bass

If you are looking for something more traditional or current, the quartet can play other styles of music from classical to pop.

Prices start at £400
