Mandy Edwards

Event: Wedding
Location: Manchester

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.

Event: Private Party
Location: Derbyshire

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

Event: Venue Club
Location: North Yorkshire

Full marks for enterprise and imagination! Highlights include some very successful playing on Orpharion and Cittern and vigorously uninhibited strumming on the Colascione.

    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.
