Celtic Strings

An amazing combination of two exceptional & highly respected multi-instrumentalists.

Alison Boyd provides soothing harp music creating a peaceful atmosphere, perfect for weddings and intimate functions.

Originally from Belfast, she is a very accomplished harpist and multi-instrumentalist.

Lindsay Martin plays an 1890’s French violin, a Davey Stuart Mandolin and Martin D28 Guitar. He has worked as an accompanist for several well known artists in live performance and in the studio, and has also worked as a session musician.

He is highly regarded in the Australian folk scene, and sought after for his natural artistic ability.

As individuals & together Alison & Lindsay have many years of experience in playing for all sorts of functions & events.

At weddings they can play soothing harp & fiddle music for that truly Irish / Celtic sound.

They can also perform as wandering minstrels mingling with your guests while they relax between the ceremony & reception. They can change their instrumentation to include, whistle, flute, accordion, mandolin, guitar or bodhran.

We also can provide a full band 3-6 piece for your event, depending on your needs & budget.
