The Cairn String Quartet are taking classical music into the 21st Century! Formed in 2007, Cairn String Quartet has become one of the most respected and sought after ensembles in the Scottish music industry, performing across the UK and Europe in all settings, from intimate gatherings to extravagant products. They are equally at home playing for weddings and corporate events as they are on the concert stage.

The twelve musicians that form the Cairn String Quartet are all talented, classically trained graduates from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (now RCS) who have played together for many years, appearing in large scale productions in venues across the UK; in small private gatherings, alongside other musicians including singers and pipers, or performing on stage together as a twelve piece ensemble in festivals around the country.

Specialising in the arrangement and performance of all genres, but particularly rock and pop, the quartet has performed with some of the biggest stars of the music industry as well as emerging talents currently storming the Scottish music scene. Previous performances include the 2011 MOBO Awards with Professor Green and Emeli Sande, a UK tour with Echo and the Bunnymen, and for the 10th Anniversary of Holyrood, attended by HRH Queen Elizabeth II. Corporate clients have included Forth Radio, Glasgow Lord Provost, Scottish Government, Chevron and

Cairn String Quartet’s unrivalled and vast playlist is sure to cover your every need. Glide down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon, swing along to Sinatra, or rock out to Guns ‘n’ Roses at your reception.

Having a large event? Cairn String Quartet can provide full amplification, as well as specialised lighting to give your electric quartet that extra oomph.
