About this Act

Bethany Morris and Jane Olson are trained musicians and have been performing together for 6 years. They have a wealth of experience in playing for Weddings and functions and offer a high quality live performance. They have an extensive repertoire list to choose from with everything on it from Bach to Adele.

The Duo are available for Wedding ceremonies and receptions as well as private parties, corporate events and charity benefits. If you are looking for a bigger ensemble for your event then they can be joined by a Violinist to offer a piano trio, a wonderful alternative to the string quartet. Your venue doesn't have to have a Piano as they carry a high quality electric instrument.

Bethany and Jane believe that the music you have on your big day should reflect you as a couple and encourage their clients to pick as much of the repertoire to be played as possible. If there is a special piece that you would like to hear that is not on their repertoire list then let them know. They are always happy to source music especially for your event. If a suitable arrangement can not be found then a bespoke arrangement can be done just for you!
