“We can't thank you enough for your beautiful music - you made our ceremony truly special! … you and John brought such a wonderful element to our ceremony…. On top of that, you were a pleasure to work with.” --Britt & Dan

Cariad Weddings

Sarah and John are experienced wedding/civil union musicians and form a duo called "Cariad" which is Welsh for "love" or "affection".  As a duo they can provide fiddle/guitar or fiddle/banjo combinations and have a vast repertoire of a variety of styles of music to choose from that can make your wedding ceremony truly unique and memorable.  After playing for your ceremony they can also play for cocktails and dinner, and even bring in additional band members for a fuller band sound or a contradance if desired.  Many combinations are possible! Couples may contact Sarah to set up an initial phone conference, or meeting in person, to go over their vision and make some selections to personalize the music for their wedding day. Something extra special that Sarah and John can provide is traditional Welsh music, which is ideal for weddings and has appeal to a broad range of tastes. 

Let us be a part of your special day!  We also do bat mitzvahs, memorial services and other special occasions. Contact us for more information and pricing.
