It wouldn’t be unfair to say The Crutwell’s have been around a bit (musically speaking, of course). Between them, Andi and Nico have procured recording and publishing deals, penned top UK Chart Hits for the BBC, written and produced for companies such as Fox USA, 19 Entertainment, Decca Records and Universal and toured with likes of The Pogues and The Stranglers… This doth make a fine brew!
Now, their new guitar/violin duo is here to bring you a fantastic set of acoustically reinvented classics, utilising all their experience and swagger to sonically set your night on fire! Bringing both humour and professionalism, these guys are must for any venue that loves great acoustic music. Strictly no backing tracks, The Crutwell’s aren’t just keeping acoustic music live... they are keeping it alive, and God bless em’ for it.
You can book us as solo (acoustic guitar and vocals) or a duo (acoustic guitar, violin and two vocals) or even just the violin for your wedding or other event.

We first saw The Crutwells at a friends house party in September 2017 and were blown away.
We spoke to them and asked if they would be interested in performing at our wedding.
We had such good fun planning- emailing and FaceTiming to agree songs and format.
I cannot speak highly enough of how fantastic they were on the day.
Nico performed the electric violin during our ceremony, with a mixture of classic and modern songs whilst we walked down the aisle and signed the wedding register. Wow, i...
This is our number one "go to" band for our in house party events. They never fail to add their special kind of magic to the proceedings. Song after song that you recognise but may not have heard for a while but delivered in such a unique way. Maximum marks for professionalism. This is a seriously good outfit with years of experience.
