The Salisbury Quartet name stems from links between the Salisbury family and Old Hatfield, rather than Salisbury in Wiltshire! Made up of a team of four string musicians, able to perform a wide range music for all kinds of event: working at masquerade balls, birthday parties (from 1-108!), formal civic prize givings and receptions, as well as weddings of all kinds, large and small, church and civil. Recently we have also played for a number of civil partnerships. Do read our glowing testimonials from delighted clients in our comments section!

"They (The Salisbury String Quartet) played at our wedding. The music was lovely and they were very attentive to what was going on. Isobel was so helpful with our request to play a piece with a singer friend of ours. Very professional and highly recommended."
