Jennifer McErlain and Richard Clarke

Event: Wedding
Location: Shropshire

On the lead up to the big day Joe was fantastic and so thorough in helping put together our music choices for the ceremony, prompting us to provide information that made the whole procession and ceremony go without a hitch. Our ceremony music, on piano and violin, sounded so beautiful and definitely made a few people well up (including both of us!). All the music was perfectly pitched and at the right volume and so many guests commented on how beautiful it sounded. Our drinks reception was made all the better for the lovely music which was a great mix of modern and more classical throughout. We were both so impressed with Joe and the violinists professionalism and talent throughout our whole day.

Hello Marie, we were very satisfied with Joe, he was such a nice guy. He was set up and ready to play by the time we arrived at the wedding drinks reception, and had previously telephoned to see if there were any other requirements. Thank you very much.

    The fees in the auto-quote section are based on 2 hours playing plus the hire of a superb Kawai ES6 digital piano. If your venue has an instrument for Joe to play then these fees will be reduced. Extra hours are available at great rates.

    Joe is available as a duo with the highly-experienced and talented vocalist Colette. Colette’s professional career began with the world arena tour of Riverdance as a part of the Riverdance Singers, where she became the featured soloist singer within a year. She spent 2 years touring internationally across Europe and Far East; and took part in the 5 year ‘homecoming’ to Dublin’s Point Theatre. She was then asked by Irish dance show rival, Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance, to become their only singer. Since then she has sung in numerous settings and for many high-profile occasions.

    Colette has been invited by Shrewsbury Choral Society, Worcester Male Voice Choir, and the Westbury Singers to sing the soprano solos in various large scale works. And has also appeared as a featured soloist in many other concerts, for example an evening celebrating St Cecilia’s Day, a showcase of local talent in Worcester, a Proms concert and a concert arranged by The Rotary Club, Bristol. She has recorded with both folk and rock bands and is able to turn her hand to any style of music.

    During her time living in Australia from 2011-2014, Colette has also toured with the Irish dance show Rhythms of Ireland and with the Irish dance/illusion show Celtic Illusion. These shows have seen her tour through New South Wales, Queensland and Northern Territories. She also appeared as a part of vocal group, Angel Voices. Once again being in demand as an ensemble performer and soloist singer.

    Joe is also available as a duo with a talented professional violinist such as Joanne Lucas, Antonia Finch, Heidi Nixon or Julie McRae. All of whom are highly experienced and classically trained but are equally at home with modern repertoire - see lists below. Please ask your agent for further details. 

    Joe is able to provide a portable instrument and sound system where no piano is provided at the venue.
