In Tudor costume he creates a wonderful atmosphere for any setting, either strolling or static, subtly mixing and mingling with guests to give them a memorable experience. He is recommended at numerous venues nationwide for dinners, weddings and special events. If your theme is Medieval, Tudor, Restoration or Renaissance he can supply appropriate entertainment to a high standard. If you like your musicians to have humour, charm, elegance and above all quality and professionalism, then look no further.
On those five instruments, The Medieval Minstrel can provide formal music for a wedding ceremony, then informal music and entertainment for the drinks reception and wedding breakfast, up to the time for speeches. For corporate events, he provides bright welcoming music then swiching to gentle background music to suit the mood or client requirements. At banquets, he can MC the evening by introducing the event, fanfaring the courses, creating audience participation and ensuring that a good time is had by all.
International gatherings require interesting music and he not only plays but sings in several languages.
Superb meal time entertainment to keep the flow and atmosphere at a relaxing engaging and very imaginative manner. The songs were highly amusing and knowledge of the instruments amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed by all our guests and would highly recommend.
The Medieval Minstrel was epic. Booked for a stag and he surpassed any expectations. Played a number of different instruments, for 3 hours, outside whilst we were having the fire, then back inside whilst we were eating then back outside. He had us dancing, laughing and singing a long all night. He taught us about the instruments, told stories about the songs and even joined in with the lads & our games. Cracking mucisian, great guy and would highly recommend him for your events (not to mention the outfit!) Exceptional value for money and he will live on in folklore for a long time to come i imagine! Long live the King!
Early Music Review
Full marks for enterprise and imagination! Highlights include some very successful playing on Orpharion and Cittern and vigorously uninhibited strumming on the Colascione.
We give you a bespoke price based on the exact location of your event. The pricing below is based on a central location for your area so you have an idea of what your price will be. The exact price will be given in the booking process after you’ve provided the location details.
How far do you travel?
Generally up to 250 miles which covers most of England. However, he has performed in California and Australia.
Can you bring other musicians to play with you?
No, as a soloist he can comfortably entertain up to 150 people.
Are you a serious or fun musician?
Both. Wedding ceremonies require formal music but for a reception he switches to engaging with the party, taking silly requests such as Nirvana, Franz Ferdinand, The Stranglers etc.
