Sarah on Anne-Marie
“It’s so much fun working with Ami cos she’s the world’s quirkiest hedonist! She has an amazing eye for treasures, treats, pleasures and delights. Off stage she shares them with me and on stage she indulges the audience and they lap her up. Some-times when we’re playing we get so “in the flow” that it feels like there’s only one instrument playing - it’s exhilarating to be as in tune with some-one as that.”
Anne-Marie on Sarah
“Playing, travelling and hanging out with Sarah is a whirlwind of fun, laughter and sophistication. We always have a good time! Since day one we clicked musically and formed a great friendship both on and off the stage. Playing the violin on her head isn’t the half of it-if you get the chance to work with her you should jump at it-but you’d have to get past me first so just hire us!”
“Best show we have seen at any holiday resort. Absolutely brilliant”
Chris and Bob Sussex
“They are like chalk and cheese – every-thing about the way they perform is totally opposite. Their two styles of playing shouldn’t work together. It is as though there are two completely separate shows going on at the same time and yet they compliment each other perfectly.”
