Hire String players to provide Elegant, Unobtrusive Music for your event


Clarsach or Strings provide beautiful and sophisticated background music.  Stringed instruments have been used as far back as the 8th century and have been a firm favourite for courtly entertainment for hundreds of years.  Stringed instruments provide elegant and unobtrusive music, suitable for cocktail receptions and background music over dinner.


The Clarsach is a small Scottish harp and Scotland’s oldest instrument.  Players can perform well known traditional Scottish songs, to haunting ballads, hymns and contemporary tunes.

The sound of the Clarsach works well with the acoustics of traditional churches and in atmospheric historic venues.

The Clarsach can duet with fiddle or guitar for larger events, or can be amplified through a PA system if needed.
