Would love to play duets, with an ensemble or with an orchestra in Gloucestershire ideally. But Bristol and/or Bath may also work.

Amateur ‘cellist (modern instrument, gut strings) seeks baroque band in Bradford-on-Avon region for fun and maybe informal gigs.

I would like to link up with other experienced Early Music musicians in the South Somerset or Dorset area, not necessarily for concerts but for the enjoyment of playing with others. I am a professional pianist and teacher. I have a portable piano with a “Harpsichord”!
