Not sure what each of these ensembles sounds or looks like?  Have a read of a general description and listen to our audio demos below.

Cello Solo

We are excited to offer cello solo as a new addition to our ensembles!  Our cellist is amplified and uses a looper pedal to create a more complex sound than that which is possible for one instrument – providing melody, harmony and bass in one interesting live mix.

Demos coming soon.

Trios

String Duo

 Our String Duo comprises violin and cello - the violin plays the melody while the cello plays the harmony and bass.  This ensemble plays all styles of music and can perform as acoustic or electric. If electric, our versatile musicians have the opportunity to use a loop pedal to record and playback additional layers of sound. 

The electric String Duo options is our most highly recommended ensemble.

Our acoustic String Duo option is recommended for venues where space is limited or for remote locations.  Our electric String Duo option requires a sheltered venues with access to power.

Demos coming soon.
