Joanne is happy to try to accommodate any requests you may have, but please be aware, there will be a small fee for this, to cover the cost of backing tracks and the time spent notating the violin part.
Joanne played beautifully with a mixed repertoire, entertaining our guests of all ages. We would have no hesitation in recommending her.
Joanne played the perfect selection of music for my big day. The solo violin was perfect for our tiny ceremony room and added a real touch of class. The pop songs during the drinks were fantastic. Everyone agreed the music was really great. Thank you!
Beautifully played music, added tremendously to our experience of the day... Jo was excellent throughout.
