Bluegrass Duets is available to perform at all events, including wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions, parties, memorials, or any type of event. We are a duet of fiddle, and a multi-instrumentalist who can perform on guitar, mandolin, or banjo. We play bluegrass music, either all instrumental, or with vocals, and we also perform classical music standards. We are experienced wedding musicians, and professional wedding musicians and performers. We pride ourselves on customer service and will work with you to provide the perfect music for your event!
We will work with you to help make your event a success. We offer unlimited phone and email consultation for no cost about planning the music for your event, and we will suggest music selections on request. If you wish for specific selections to be performed we can in most cases arrange this with at least a months notice.
We can be hired for either the reception, the ceremony, or both.
During wedding ceremonies we usually play during the prelude, as guests enter and seat themselves. We can also play for the processional (one or several pieces for the entry of the family, wedding party, and bride and groom). As well as playing bluegrass music, we can perform classical music wedding standards on mandolin and violin, which can be good during wedding ceremonies.
If we play during the service we can perform short pieces of music between readings, or parts of the ceremony, or during non speaking parts of the ceremony such as exchanging rings, communion, or signing the register. Often we play during the recessional as the wedding party exits, and during the postlude as the guests leave.
We also can play after the ceremony at receptions, cocktail hours, etc. Our music is great for dancing!
We can send you a list of the titles of all the instrumental pieces we play, and we take requests for specific bluegrass pieces. We can also choose selections for you, you just let us know what speed you want the music to have (slow, medium, fast), what volume, and what instrumentation. Margaret always plays fiddle, but Victor performs on either guitar, mandolin, or banjo. Guitar provides a warm, acoustic sound, mandolin produces the most intricate and pretty music, and banjo provides an authentic, twangy bluegrass sound. We can perform all instrumental music, or a mixture of instrumental and vocal music.
