Stringsaloud String Quartet


Stringsaloud is an established and glamorous string quartet at the very peak of their powers. Formed by the talented Mairi Hunter-Barr, the original line up and business was established in Scotland and soon became a byword for sophistication and elegance.

String Quartet with Hireaband


When Mairi relocated to Berkshire, she established a second quartet with the same standards and reputation as the original.

Mairi is the common denominator and performs in both quartets to ensure the persistently high level of performance for which the quartet is justifiably famous.

With enchanting interpretations of wonderful classical music and their own arrangements of popular songs for strings, this is an act that will add instant sparkle and glamour to your event.

Whether your event is taking place in Scotland or the South East of England, contact us today on 0845 226 0494 or email for an instant quote and availability check. You'll be glad you did.

Stringsaloud String Quartet

Very well received performance - the girls completely understood the brief, looked great and played beautifully - towards the end the 'historic' lighting was a bit dim but they soldiered on!
Many thanks

Stringsaloud String Quartet

Dear Mairi Our guests have raved about your performance at our wedding celebration. You certainly helped create the ambience we were looking for and one of our very few regrets was not having more time to stop and listen to you. What we did manage to hear was excellent. We have to say that many of the men found you very pleasing on the eye as well as the ear, judging by the many (favourable) comments! Wishing you continued success and our Best Wishes for the future.
