Being a Wedding Pianist in Somerset
My name is Eugene Portman and I receive a regular supply of work as a wedding pianist from the Somerset area. There is a vast diversity of wedding venues in Somerset and I have played the piano in many of them. For example, there are three that keep cropping up which are Coombe Lodge, Blagdon; Orchardleigh Court, Frome; and The Pump House, Bath. These three are wonderful venues, but there are many more throughout the area.
To be a wedding pianist in the Somerset I have to be versatile. This means that I have to be able to perform many styles and genres of music. For instance, classical music is a popular choice for ceremonies, while jazz is becoming more and more popular for drinks receptions.
The many genres and styles of music I play include pop, blues, rock, classical, Latin, and even sing-along.
Being a Sing-along Pianist in Somerset
A recent trend has left me swamped with work as a sing-along pianist in Somerset for events and weddings. At first, the events that required this sort of thing were usually parties and other informal events. However, this started to change and sing-along sessions started to become a feature of weddings and other more formal events.
When I am booked for this sort thing, I provide all the song sheets and I dress as a typical Cockney pianist. This includes a Bowler hat, waistcoat, grandad shirt, pocket watch, neckerchief, etc.
For more information about this please visit the sing-along page. Alternatively, visit my other website at www.uksingalongpianist.co.uk and find out where in Somerset you can hear me play the piano live.
I work as a pianist all over the Somerset area. Here are the towns, villages, and cities I cover:
- Chew Magna
- Chipping Sodbury
- Farrington Gurney
- Long Ashton
- Castle Cary
- Curry Rivel
- Hatch Beauchamp
