Emma is a professional violinist based in Durham and has more than fifteen years experience of performing at many of the region's most prestigious wedding venues including Wynyard Hall, Lumley Castle, Matfen Hall, Beamish Hall, Headlam Hall, Healey Barn and many more.

I have booked Carl on a number of occasions to perform during our Officers Mess ball for the past three years. He his highly professional, punctual and incredibly competent. He has the rare ability to play both beautiful classical music for our meal and the most energetic modern songs in the bar afterwards. I have no hesitation in recommending him for any type of events.
