Description

Price from: £100

A uniquely uplifting wedding experience!.
I trained young as a classical violinist for 10 years before adopting the electric guitar where throughout 20 years I learned the genres of rock, jazz, country, folk, modern pop covers and original music. For the last 17 years I have focused on the violin, 12 of which I have spent as a member of the well known Doc Brown Trio with Wes Finch, transferring my guitar skills to my existing classical background and playing as many as 180 gigs annually throughout Britain. This combination of focus on different styles and instruments has allowed me to interpret and express myself, crossing musical boundaries and delivering emotions to the listener that uniquely excel the everyday expectations of a violin.
In my work as a solo violinist, reimagining bluegrass, classical and pop tunes into my own arrangements. Sought after by producers and musicians alike, my contributions have been released on 24 albums over the last 10 years, plus on an additional 5 compilation albums.
Highlights of my career have been membership of the Country and Western band “Honky Tonk Rose” with Horace Panter (The Specials), aswell as orchestral appearances on the X-Factor with Susan Boyle and at the Schools’ Prom at the Royal Albert Hall with Nigel Kennedy. Additionally, an appearance at the Irish Heritage Festival with Sean (The Dubliners) and Robert Cannon.
Further highlights have been performances at venues such as The Barbican Centre, Birmingham Symphony Hall, and Stratford’s Royal Shakespeare Theatre for a BBC Radio 3 live broadcast performance celebrating 400 years of Shakespeare alongside performers such as Rufus Wainwright and Peter Knight (Steeleye Span).
Clients have described my playing as “uniquely uplifting”, with “a strong connection to the audience”. “Jools has an ability to thrive in challenging musical situations”, with“ an enviable ability to work quickly and effectively within a very wide range of musical styles”.
