Instead of sheet music, we use Samsung Galaxy tablets. There are many advantages to them: they are neat and tidy, you and your guests can choose music with ease, there is minimal delay between pieces, they enable us to quickly relocate if needed, we don’t need lighting and most importantly we can easily add new music to our ever increasing repertoire.
Our String Quartet repertoire contains over 1,000 pieces from Bach to the Killers, and everything in between, making it one of the largest collections in Britain.
The Bridgewater String Quartet and Trio has something for everyone, and if your favourite song isn’t on our list, we can have it arranged for you.

Thank you so much for your amazing performance at our wedding, it was just perfect and everyone really loved your string quartet. My mum was just so happy that you were performing as she loved you guys and mentions you every time I see her. Thank you for helping make our day and our guest’s day extra classy and special.
Thank you so much to you and your colleagues for performing at our wedding on Monday. Our guests were singing your praises and saying how beautiful the music was. I must say, what I heard sounded absolutely wonderful. I wish you all the best for the future, and we know where to come if we ever need some magical music again.
What can I say! I can’t thank you enough for being so amazing you helped elevate our day to another level, I’m still on magical whirlwind I don’t want to get off. I’m sorry I didn’t get to give you a big hug and thank you in person. Thank you so much.
Just wanted to say thank you so much for playing on our wedding day. When I heard that first song from the bridal room it made me so emotional and made it all feel real. I’m sorry I barely got a chance to see you but I heard you and it was just perfect. Can’t thank you enough for helping to make our day so special.
