Mobirise

While we try to keep a core string quartet, our other members are often our freelance friends from across the UK, depending on where we are playing and other work we might all be engaged with! But whether we are working with our ‘normal’ setup or with others, they are always our faves for the gig and we’ll always guarantee some great music!
