Jaya Hanley and Sarah James perform their Violin and Cello cover versions of popular songs at a summer fete.
A community concert at a Summer Fête hosted by a local school. Using a portable PA system and simple amplification.

With our wide variety of musical styles we can mix and match to create the perfect program for your audience. We offer everything from a formal concert of Beethoven & Bach, to an intimate program of pop music and film scores. We create a genuine connection with our audiences by recounting the history and stories behind the music, as well as including a few humorous anecdotes!

Our performances are accessible to all ages and we especially encourage young children to attend all of our performances. We are also sympathetic to individuals with special needs, if you have questions about the suitability of our performances please don’t hesitate to ask.

We love meeting people and enjoy chatting to audience members during intervals and at the end of concerts. We’re also very happy to answer questions about our lives as musicians, past and present, as well as our music and instruments.

We have done numerous community performances at events across the country in Village Halls, Churches, for House Concerts, Charity Events, Summer Fetes, Fundraisers, Music Societies, Coffee Concerts & Christmas Concerts.
