About Us

Live music adds greatly to any event and The Scottish National String Quartet can make your wedding or function that extra bit special. The quality of our music and our professionalism are unquestionable. We are well-presented and highly experienced musicians. Our usual attire is formal black, but we can wear brighter colours if you prefer. Whether we are Indoors or outdoors, four chairs and protection from the weather is all that is needed. Our players are highly experienced classically trained musicians who have played at hundreds of weddings & functions in many different environments. We are sensitive to your guests' needs and are experienced enough to be in touch with the feel of the function in order to choose music appropriately.
