    Outstanding guitarist, very professional

    We were lucky enough to be able to book Duncan to play classical guitar during our wedding ceremony. Not only is he the best exponent of classical guitar I have seen perform, but he also liaised brilliantly with the other musicians, speakers and venue management on the day. Duncan is extremely professional and a simply outstanding musician, we can't recommend highly enough

    Perfection

    We cannot begin to describe how talented Duncan is a musician. Not only in how well he can play, but in the way he took 'our' song; I'll Stand by You - The Pretenders, and arranged it as a classical piece. With accompaniment from another great guitarist, Russell Lloyd, Duncan played our song as my beautiful wife walked down the aisle on our wedding day. One of the many fine, fantastic moments of our day.

    Beautiful wedding day music. Highly recommended.

    I can’t imagine our wedding day without Duncan’s beautiful musical contribution. Duncan made some of the most important moments of our day even more memorable through his stunning guitar playing.
    Duncan was very friendly and approachable when we contacted him. We discussed the type of music we wanted and the moments of the ceremony that we wanted him to accompany. Duncan made some excellent suggestions and was happy to learn new music to fit with our ideas.
    In the ceremony the signing went on for longer than we expected. Thankfully, Duncan came to the rescue and filled in with more music from his wide repertoire. His playing was so beautiful that the congregation even gave him an impromptu round of applause when he finished.
    We are very grateful to Duncan for helping to make our day so special. We would highly recommend him for a wedding or any event that needs classical guitar music.
