Tina and Ruth have provided string groups and arrangements for many performers, including legendary artists, for almost a decade.
They now present (October 2016) as "The London String Group".
"I cannot say enough praiseworthy things about the
London Strings. I've been fortunate to work with them on several
projects over the past 2-3 years; both live and in the studio. Ruth and
Tina always bring the very best.... The most competent, professional
players who get the job done. The string arrangements are always written
to perfection so that even on a first time run through of material the
notes, pitch, blend and dynamics are spot on. In a professional music
world where time always equals money, this is an organization you can
count on 100 per cent to get your music project done right and with
style every time!"
- Morris "Mo" Pleasure. Musician/Producer
The London String Group can provide anything from a single string player to an entire orchestra for live performances and sessions.
We also offer arrangements and improvisational skills when required.
"I have booked more string sections than I care to remember, but the London String Group are a different level... such lovely people who only ever smile & get on with the job in hand, is a much needed break when the stress is high hand-on-heart, a joy to work with."
- Glen Rowe (MUSE Tour Management)
The London String Group is focused on working not only with the utmost professionalism, but also regard a positive, upbeat and outgoing attitude as being essential to music making.
We are happy to collaborate and work with you to give you the exact string sound and style you are looking for.
