Add a touch of glamour to your event with a live violinist!
Alison has been playing music at weddings and other events professionally for eight years. Her repertoire can be tailored to your preferences, and is ideal for wedding ceremonies and as background music during drinks receptions and meals.
You can even request songs! You could walk down the aisle to a new violin cover of your favourite song, or (for an additional fee) commission an original composition by Alison. You can listen to some of her past works here. Alison is accompanied by high quality backing tracks, and can bring her own PA system. You can also combine Alison’s classical and pop songs with her unaccompanied folk fiddle repertoire – please visit the Fiddle Player page for more information.
Classical standards: Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Pachelbel’s Canon, etc.

“I feel that I am very privileged to be writing this review. I chose Alison to play at my daughter’s wedding; from start to finish the process was extremely easy and Alison is so very professional. She was very helpful walking me through the music selection for me to chose. Come the wedding day there is no way I can put into words how magical it was to finally hear Alison play – she did not disappoint her gift of playing beautiful music. It was so overwhelming, every guest commented on how brilliant she was and made a special day so very precious. Alison, I cannot thank you enough and would recommend you to the moon and back – you are so talented.” – solo violin, August 2019 at Mansion House registry office (Newport, Wales)
