We love bringing the elegance and beauty of the cello and guitar to the special events in people’s lives, especially weddings!
A diverse range of music is at our fingertips from traditional favorites such as Pachelbel’s Canon and Beethoven's Ode to Joy, to Standards like “What a Wonderful World”, “Blue Moon”, to Celtic Music such as "Down by the Sally Gardens", "Greensleeves", "Scarborough Fair", to contemporary songs such as, “In My Life” and other Beatles classics, “From This Moment” by Shania Twain, “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder. We like to meet with you personally and communicate closely with you until you feel we've chosen the perfect musical selections for your special day. As a classically trained musician, trained at the Royal College of Music in London, England, I have tremendous versatility. I have played professionally in the UK, US and on Vancouver Island for the past 25 years in a variety of ensembles and a multitude of venues from The Royal Albert Hall in London, The Railway Club in Vancouver, The Port Theatre in Nanaimo to Sooke Harbour House in Victoria. Leon Nagasaki (guitar) is a professional musician based in Victoria, BC. He has been studying guitar and making music since he was 15 years old. In this time, he studied a variety of musical styles and instruments culminating with a Degree in Jazz Performance from Capilano University, where he graduated with distinction. Leon has also worked on the cruise ships, in musical theatre as a sight-reading guitarist, and gigged extensively on the local music scene- both as a bandleader and sideman. I’ve had the pleasure to play for some celebrities along the way, Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, Bill Gates and various politicians and dignitaries. I have also have shared the stage with many musicians including Placido Domingo, John Williams, The Irish Rovers, 54-40, Jim Byrnes among others… We specialize in the intimate, unique wedding, but want you to know that we have the energy and musical vitality to fill any space! Also accompanying us to any event is a sense of style, professionalism, and a gratitude for the privilege to be taking part in such a significant moment in your life! Sincerely, Kathy & Leon Read less

Ten Strings and a Bow made our wedding perfect. Kathy's flexibility was outstanding in what was a very last minute decision on our part to secure musicians. They helped us select songs for the ceremony and were very flexible on the music for the party and reception. Incredible versatility in the music, and flexibility to customize a package that worked for us. The music was perfect, and Kathy and Leon's repertoire for our garden party themed wedding could not have been more ideal.

Besides an extensive playlist Both Kathy and Troy were open to playing other songs of our choice. They were prompt, pleasant and professional. Several guests commented on their sound and quality of music. Wedding planning is a stressful process and it was a relief not to worry about the music.
