About this Act

Jessica is based in Scotland and is available to play for weddings, functions and concerts helping to create the perfect atmosphere for any event. She is a graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where she studied under the tuition of Wendy Stewart and Hannah Phillips. She plays a Starfish Mamore, a 37 string clarsach that is portable enough for any location.

In 2011 she received the Clan Currie award for Clarsach, and is the 2012 winner of the Orkney Folk Festival Open Stage.

Previous engagements include Edinburgh Castle, Glasgow City Chambers, Bothwell Castle Golf Club, St Magnus Cathedral and Ross Priory. She has performed for the likes of HRH the Prince of Wales, the Lord Provost of Glasgow, and Rangers Football Club.

Jessica can provide music for the guests' arrival, the Bride's entrance, the signing of the register, the Bride and Groom's exit and the guests' departure. She can also provide background music for the drinks reception, or during the wedding breakfast.

Jessica can also provide a clarsach and violin duo, perfect for larger venues.
