Dear Lizz and Winkie

Thank you so much for your performance on Wednesday.  We are only sorry that we didn’t get to appreciate as much of your performance as our guests did.  I love the fact that you played L.O.V.E as we came into the Garden Room, even if it did mean that I had to dance (or attempt to).
Do Gitane do any public performances?

Hi Lizz and Winkie

We are writing to thank you for your part in making our concert a huge success. Lizzy you are a firm favourite having appeared in three of the four concerts in Melksham and you only need to go on stage and smile you immediately melt the hearts of all of the men in the audience. Our concert being different than the others with it’s golden theme the addition of Winkie with the piano accordion Gitane created a romantic Parisian sound right for the occasion..
the beret the onions all added to the ambience it’s a good job they keep !!! onion soup all winter!!! Thank you also for returning a part of your fee as a donation for the cause it just demonstrates the lovely people you are.

Our very best regards

Dear Lizz,

I'm so sorry I didn't get to chat with you after the ceremony. I just wanted to say how fab you were and you really made my day very special. When you started playing as I came up the hill I almost started to cry it was so beautiful (and Shane said so did he :). 

And when you played Meditation during the ceremony I remember looking out at you and the beautiful backdrop and thinking what a very special moment it was. Everyone loved Ashoken Farewell and my Dad told me he asked you to play it again afterwards :)

Shane said you were blue by the time you finished playing! It did get very chilly up there! Despite that I hope you enjoyed it.
So again thank you so much for making our wonderful day even more special.

Hi Lizz,

I just wanted to say thank you for playing at our wedding on the 16th August 2013.  You were amazing and play so beautifully. I really enjoyed watching you on the terrace as we were having our photos done and love the way that you are not shy to move around and have fun with the guests.  All our guests have commented on how great you were.  You made everything so easy for us from start to finish and it wouldn't have been the same without you. 

Thank you so much.

Hi Lizz,

Thank you so much.  We had a wonderful day and your playing was fantastic.  Hearing you play us in so beautifully was a wonderful moment which we shall treasure.  
You were great.

If you ever need a testimonial, just ask!

All the best,
Amy & Pier x

Dear Lizzie,
I believe that Amy has already written to you, offering her thanks, but my husband, Chris, and I would just like to add our own personal “thank you”, too, for your truly wonderful violin-playing at Amy and Pierluigi’s Wedding on 27th May. 
It was breathtakingly beautiful.  So many people remarked upon it, and it really made the atmosphere so heart-warming during that lovely wedding ceremony.
Amy and Pier are now enjoying their honeymoon, and, by all accounts, supping lots of delicious cocktails, while happily reminiscing about that wonderful wedding day, which you helped tremendously to make so special.
Thank you, again, Lizzie.  We shall most certainly bear you in mind for any future events, and highly recommend you to family members and friends.
With very best wishes,

Linda Ewbank

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your playing and the repertoire, it catered for all tastes and age range. I have received many congratulations on a superb evening entertainment which is all down to you. Your presentation, charm and personality captivated the many Lions who were there and help make a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable evening for everyone.

I know that many expressed interest in having you attend other functions and I hope they are as good as their word.

Dear Lizz,

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for doing such a fantastic job at our wedding two weeks ago. Sorry it's taken us so long to email - we went to Iceland on honeymoon then had another break with the children straight after so we're just getting back into normal life :)

You were absolutely amazing!! Hearing you playing as I walked down the aisle is a memory that will stay with me forever. You played so beautifully during the ceremony and everyone has been talking about how great you were when you were walking around playing during the drinks reception (sadly we missed a lot of this as we were off having our pics taken). My mother-in-law in particular said that she thought you were just incredible. You did such a great job and we would recommend you to anyone. Thank you for helping to make our day so special.
