After moving from Gloucestershire aged 16 to study music, Ruby is now a full time singer, cellist and pianist. She is London based and accompanies herself with cello or piano or performs on either solo without vocals. She also sings acapella or alongside another accompanist if a client wishes. Ruby has been performing in churches, at weddings and similar events from a young age and has huge experience in different audience situations.

Ruby sang for us at our charity concert in aid of Maggie's Cancer care and was a joy. She filled the church and was professional throughout.

What does the usual wedding set require?
Ruby is extremely versatile and performs an eclectic mix of pop and jazz songs or has a set list of standard classical repertoire. All set lists can be catered to the client and Ruby is more than happy to perform a song that is important to a couple or person. In the past, Ruby has performed one or two songs during the wedding ceremony in the church.
She can perform classical repertoire for shorter or longer periods of time on cello. This is something you can discuss with her so it fits your event in the best way possible. Pieces include the Bach solo cello suites, the Vivaldi cello sonatas and Saint Säens' famous ' The Swan'.
