ABOUT ME

I am a highly experienced multi-instrumentalist who, for various acts, performs on Fiddle (Violin), Flutes (simple system and Boehm system flutes), Whistle, Piano, Recorders ... and sometimes a wee bit of Backing Vocals or Guitar too! I moved over to GB from Ireland, where I was privileged to play in sessions alongside many of the very best in Irish music

Performances have included a wide variety of functions / venues including 5* Hotels; both in Britain and abroad. I featured along with my current Duo partner on BBC Radio, TV and in Play Magazine. I can be heard performing [Fiddle, Flute and lowest vocals] on Gaudete (16th century Christmas carol) with Fiona’s Legend. This recording is on the BBC national Christmas playlist, was 'Record of the Week' on 3 BBC Regional Radio Stations and was also featured on BBC TV. It is available on YouTube, along with other videos including myself and/or my Duo partner

I regularly perform for Weddings, Birthdays, Irish Events, Funerals / Wakes, Private Dinners, Garden Parties etc. The Fiddles used are electro-acoustic and an electric fiddle. Both are 5 string instruments (additionally have the low C string of the Viola). I use a variety of pedals / effects - one of which enables me, when suitable, to sound like a 'Cello too! :)

Currently working on some new Duo material with a professional internationally experienced singer who has sung all over the world e.g. the Royal Palace of Abu Dhabi, and was a lead singer Riverdance and Lord of The Dance. Fiona was previously reviewed by Classic FM as an ‘exceptional young talent’ and has sung live on national TV & radio (BBC One, ITV, Fox TV in the USA, RTE in Ireland, BBC Scotland, Classic FM, Lyric FM Ireland, BBC Radio (2 and 4). She has performed for many top Corporate clients at 5* venues, including the Savoy Hotel, London and the Guinness Brewery, Dublin.

BACKING TRACKS:

Pro quality backing tracks are used for the performances - most of these, custom made or custom edited. These include standard 'band' versions like the originals, in addition to beautiful, unusual versions of well known songs / melodies - some of the well known songs / music from the charts etc have a 'celtic flavour' due to the instrumentation / arrangement of the backing, many are just like the originals. Backing tracks used have been carefully chosen and the Irish / Scottish / 'Celtic' music usually features instruments such as harp, uilleann pipes, highland bagpipes, accordion, whistle, guitar, piano, bodhrán etc

PA SYSTEMS:

Elegant, unobtrusive high quality Bose L1 1S B1 PA system (and other gear) provided, but can also make use of in-house systems (where appropriate) -
Smaller excellent quality BOSE S1 Pro, battery powered PA speaker available for smaller venues, fewer guests, or, where no power is available

VIDEO EXAMPLES:

All my bookings are private functions so it is not appropriate to employ a videographer to film me whilst performing at them. Consequently, I do not have much video, and what I do have is, to be honest, not great quality filming (was filmed on phones). This is why I do not usually have video on my profile. If you'd like to see some please let me know and I can send video files via messaging here.

FEES:

Difficult to state a price 'from' due to being a highly versatile act, suitable act for all sorts of events, ... from

1 favourite song for a marriage proposal ... to ...

pre-wedding guest arrival + ceremony + drinks reception + wedding breakfast meal... to ...

corporate and community events etc ...

restaurants ...

private parties ...

funerals and wakes ...

Daytime or Evening... Weekday or Weekend...

Also, difficult to give a “from” because 'optional add-ons' are available in terms of:

musical instruments used, level of booker involvement in planning, learning of a 'special request' as yet unknown, other special requests etc.

Quotes will include basic Fee for the above, fuel and PopTop fees to me.
Additional expenses might be necessary (e.g overnight B&B, London Congestion Charge, Road Tolls, Parking, Flights etc).

"""We decided to have Josie entertain our guests with her fiddle for our annual Burns Night celebration. Her attention to detail was impressive regarding the music selection, timings of the performance and interaction with our speaker, and despite the venue's restrictions, Josie played a brilliant set of Scottish folk music. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and would indeed employ her again for another event if required."

Josie was fantastic from start to finish. The communication in advance of the event and regular updates were perfect, and the setup of the sound system was brilliant. Josie ticked all our boxes for our St Patricks day celebrations and we have received great feedback across the board at how cool it was to have modern day songs, with a traditional twist.

Josie performed for us for a corporate St Patrick's Day celebration event. She was brilliant; thoroughly professional and detail focused in the run up, and went down a storm on the night. She was keen to get the music balance right and we had a mix of traditional Irish music with more contempoary rock and pop. Highly recommend!

A highly talented musician, having studied for two music degrees. Her performance of both Irish and other music on both Fiddle and Flute was superb and greatly appreciated by all at our large lunchtime event for over 100 guests within a marquee. She had had to travel quite some distance and was very obliging when I asked her to travel the evening before. Excellent, and a very good find.

Just a note to thank you for playing on Saturday night. The music was perfect, creating just the atmosphere I wanted. I particularly want to thank you for ... Wonderful Tonight, it was lovely for my husband and I to be able to dance to it. Many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed your performance. Many thanks

  • Who are your previous clients?
    Clients / Performance Venues include: Gleeds Property & Construction Consultancy, Oxford University, JWT Advertising Agency Kensington, The Porch House - Stow On The Wold (Englands Oldest Inn!), Hanbury Manor - Ware, Leez Priory nr Chelmsford, Nutfield Priory - Redhill, Bentley's Oyster Bar - Picadilly, Essex Golf Club - Chingford ... 5* Hotels to Golf Clubs and idyllic Walled Gardens, all sorts of venues / clients ... Private Dinners to Weddings and Birthday Parties to Baby Showers … suitable for wide range of occasions
  • How can event planners pay for your services?
    Deposit is payable via PopTop. Balance can be paid via internet banking - as long as funds are cleared by night before event, or, balance payment can be in cash in a sealed envelope - payable on arrival after setting up (not after event is over)
  • How long do you play for?
    Depends upon event. Anything from 30 minutes for a Proposal right through to 4 or 5 hours or more. For Weddings, available for i) Guest Arrival + Ceremony ii) Drinks Reception iii) Wedding Breakfast Meal iv) Early evening "lull" before main Band / DJ v) potentially, to improvise on Electric Violin alongside Band / DJ (with their agreement!)
  • Do you have your own PA and lighting?
    Main PA system used is the fantastic, elegant and unobtrusive BOSE L1 1S B1, with Digital mixer, effects pedals etc. Alternative: For outdoors and other situations where power is unavailable, a smaller Bose S1 Pro PA speaker can be used that is battery operated! the rest of the equipment can also be run on batteries. Lighting: Small but effective lighting unit used as/when appropriate. Provides a changing 'colour wash' behind me but not enough for the whole room / venue
  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
    Yes, all relevant electrical equipment is PAT tested annually. Public Liability Insurance current and renewed annually. Public Liability Insurance provided through professional membership of ISM (Incorporated Society of Musicians). Both certs are available to view upon request
  • How much space do you require?
    A absolute minimum of 9 square foot equivalent (and for the BOSE L1 1S, a minimum ceiling clearance height of 6 foot 3 inches due to it's tall tower 'line array design). For outdoor bookings a gazebo / marquee with 3 sides available if needed, is also a requirement (same size requirements) due to health/safety and insurance reasons. Enquire for further info on this if required
  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
    You will see that there is a really extensive repertoire list. If you have a special request that I do not already perform, I can probably do this for you - however, I would need to research, find / purchase / edit a suitable backing track for the song, and learn it. Therefore, much depends upon availability of a suitable backing track and whether enough notice is given (which will depend upon how busy I am so notice needed might change from time to time). This is an optional add-on of +£50 to cover all the time this takes to research and prepare.
  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
    Small breaks of 10 minutes are sometimes, but not always taken, to get a drink or use the bathroom facilities. Depends upon length of booking etc. It is usually only once per booking if it is needed. Background music via iPod can be provided through PA during any break. If you book, say, 2 or 3 hours, you get 2 or 3 FULL hours, not divided into 45 min slots with breaks as many bands / artists offer. Unless of course, you wish me to take breaks!
  • Can you perform outdoors?
    Often, yes, no problem. However, for outdoor bookings a gazebo / marquee with 3 sides available if needed, is a requirement due to health/safety and insurance reasons. Even light drizzle and normal summer sunlight can be damaging to electrical equipment / expensive musical instruments. If rain starts, it would not be possible to move everything before extensive damage occurs / possibility of electrical equipment becoming unsafe. Also, being outdoors makes it extremely hard to see / properly use the iPad / backing track app, another reason cover is needed. So. this is not negotiable. The cover provided needs to be absolute minimum of 9 square foot and a minimum ceiling clearance height of 6 foot 3 inches.
  • Are all musical instruments used for all bookings?
    Basic quote is for Fiddle (Violin) only. A small additional fee of +£30 is payable for addition of Flute and Whistle due to extra equipment needed and additional set up / sound check
  • Do you only perform for Irish events?
    No, all sorts. I have a huge repertoire of Irish, Scottish and 'Celtic' music but also have plenty of music from other genres ranging from the 1950's through to recent - including music from movies, tv etc (see main profile description for details). There is also some very old music that far pre-dates the 20th century - think "Medieval Tavern", "Medieval Banquet" - music from the time / in the style of / & also suitable style music from Fantasy Films / Games. "Celtic & Medieval" Christmas set also available.
  • Can you perform in the afternoons for Care Homes / Residential Homes?
    Absolutely! I have a Masters Degree in Music Therapy and am a trained facilitator in the use of the Creative Arts in Dementia Care - so this is a setting I am happy to perform in.
  • What time would you arrive?
    I usually aim to arrive 2 - 2.5 hours prior to start time to allow plenty of time to assess performance area, sort out any issues (such as lack of power sockets - does happen!), unload, move vehicle if necessary, set up, sound check, eat and/or get changed if necessary (due to time of day / weather / type of event / venue) etc. Please ensure access to venue and performance area minimum 2 hours prior
  • What sort of Irish music do you perform?
    All sorts - a mixture of old and contemporary Irish music, and music that is not Irish but popular with Irish people (based on personal experience and requests history!) e.g … Cranberries, U2, Waterboys, Saw Doctors, Pogues, Van Morrison, Corrs, Thin Lizzy, Christy Moore, Enya, Cara Dillon, Sinéad O’Connor, Brian Kennedy, Mary Black, Goats Don't Shave, Aslan, Kodaline, The Script, Snow Patrol etc - and music / songs covered by: The Fureys, The Dubliners, Foster & Allen etc. PLUS - Old / Traditional song melodies / dance Tunes (jigs / reels) ALSO - e.g Johnny Cash, Garth Brooks, Nathan Carter, Steve Earle, Kenny Rogers, Bob Dylan, Oasis, Killers, Mumford & Sons.
  • Can you perform just Rock and Pop?
    Absolutely! Rock sets will typically be a mixture of Rock styles from different decades. Pop is chosen that will fit in well with the rest.
  • Can you perform all Scottish music?
    Yes, I can offer a 100% Scottish set e.g. for a Burns Night event. Old / traditional song melodies and traditional dance music (jigs, reels, strathspeys, waltzes etc). Backing tracks include instruments such as Piano Accordion, Highland and Border Pipes etc.
  • Can you perform for my themed wedding / event?
    Potentially yes! Example: for recent bookings... 1) an "Outlander" themed ceremony with music from the 18th century Scottish Jacobite era TV show "Outlander". 2) "Medieval Tavern" themed music for during Wedding Breakfast meal - includes music from late Medieval / early Baroque and music "in the style of" in the Folk genre, plus music from Fantasy Films / Games where the music in the backing tracks uses instruments that fit with this theme.

NOTE
There is a selection of light, older ‘Celtic’, Folk, and Jazz music that fits in well with some western Classical music as above. Additionally, some of the available backing tracks for contemporary songs have only guitar or piano, and a light feel, so are also a suitable accompaniment to Fiddle (Violin) and Flute, blending in well with the above.
