Vespertine Duo are Jonny (guitar) and Ben (Cello).
Vespertine Duo are a London-based classical guitar and cello duet. They specialize in early jazz, classical and Latin music from relaxing and romantic to fun and rhythmic. They also drop some contemporary songs and folk tunes into the set when appropriate.
Ben and Jonny have played together for many years on stages small and large with jazz stars such as Polar Bear as well as backing popular musicians such as Kylie Minogue and Roland Gift. They are professionals with plenty of experience but perhaps more importantly retain a strong passion for what they do and a desire to keep discovering and learning new music. Ben was nominated for the Mercury award in 2007.
This is the ideal duet for corporate events, weddings, dinners or receptions. Adding a touch of class to any occasion.

We can also add percussion/drum, double bass or jazz vocals.
We have our own high quality portable acoustic amplification for each instrument, as we are essentially a background music act we don't need lighting although if it is essential we can hire some to suit the situation.
