Music For Your Event

hampstead-wedding

Martina, center, plays at a wedding party in Hampstead, London.

The music was absolutely fantastic and perfectly judged – everyone commented on how much they loved it – she even took time afterward to show some of the children how to play the accordion.

Martina has a wide and varied repertoire as a solo accordionist (see list at bottom of page)  and also sings on request. Tuning into the special nature of your event, she will enhance the atmosphere with the appropriate music for Weddings, Wakes, Themed Events (a French/ Gipsy/ German theme, a film theme, for example) and other private functions and events. Martina could also organise fellow musicians to play at your event.

“Martina played at our wedding reception and made the evening even more special! “

“Martina played at the reception of our movie-themed wedding at Shepperton Studios – she was amazing and made the day all the more special for us as we love the music of the accordion – so romantic!  Book her!” – “I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her!”

Martina plays at a wedding party in Brighton. “Our fantastic accordionist, Martina Schwarz… “

She played Yann Tiersen and Beirut, as well as some of the classics by Edith Piaf – she played while guests arrived for the wedding.

 

“She played at the bandstand and when I walked down the aisle. 

 

She also led everyone to the restaurant, still playing!”
