I just wanted to say how much we and our guests enjoyed your performance. I only wish I could have listened to more! Lots of people commented on how beautiful the music was so thank you so much for being part of our special day.

Joanne was absaloutly amazing!! Honestly the most perfect performances we could have asked for. Every guest commented how amazing she was, everything from planning to the actual day we couldn't fault her! Thank you so much!

***** It's a long time due because we've been ever so busy but better late than never. I'd like to say a massive thank you to this lovely lady who played at our church ceremony on 22nd April 2017. You were amazing and gave our wedding that extra touch of something special. Thank you so much for learning the two hymns at short notice, you sounded amazing. Everybody commented on how lovely it was to have you instead of an organist. You really made our wedding. Thank you once again. It was a plea...

***** Jo Dodds was excellent, she really made our party special. So friendly and professional. Everyone at our party commented on how good she was, it was a pleasure to hear her play and if I ever need to book a musician, I will be booking her again. I recommend her highly.

  • How long do you play for?
    As long as requested!
  • Do you have your own PA and lighting?
    I have my own chargeable, autonomous PA.
  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
    I have full PLI.
  • How much space do you require?
    Approximately 2.5 sq. metres. Enough ceiling height to enable bowing action.
  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
    I can arrange anything you like if you request the arrangement in advance.
  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
    I am normally quite happy to play for a couple of hours without a break so long as I have a drink to hand!
  • Can you perform outside?
    Yes, but this is weather dependent (please remember that my 200 year old violin is not waterproof and doesn’t like direct sunlight so a wet weather plan and gazebo are a good idea).
