About Us

Shoalhaven Strings is a dynamic violin and cello duo providing quality string music for weddings and functions located in the NSW South Coast, Southern Highlands and the Illawarra. 

Jacob (violinist) and April (cellist) are classically trained musicians and have been playing together at events for nearly a decade. We have a wealth of performance experience and an understanding that great music is the key ingredient for making your event run smoothly. We are passionate about providing quality musical performance and will work closely with you to create the perfect mood for your upcoming event. 

Our Violin & Cello Duo performs as an amplified or acoustic duo. We also offer amplified solo cello. Amplification allows us to use a BOSS RC300 Loop Station to record and playback multiple layers, increasing the richness, warmth and complexity of our sound.


I imagined you guys were going to be great, but the touch you added to our relaxed ceremony was nothing less then perfect. ”
