“Lindsay was the best! My husband is from Northern Ireland, so we knew we wanted to incorporate some traditional Irish music into our ceremony and dinner. When we found Lindsay, we didn’t look at any other musicians. Her voice is amazing, and her blend of traditional Irish songs and pop/folk songs was perfect for us! She was professional and responsive and so sweet! She even learned the song that my husband proposed to me with as a surprise to him when I walked down the aisle. She gave me a recording of it to keep, and it’s so special. Thank you Lindsay!”

"As soon as I found Lindsay's music online, I KNEW she was the one I wanted to play our wedding. She exceeded all of our expectations. Her voice and her guitar skills are unbelievably beautiful in person. On the day of our wedding, we had countless guests come up to us to ask where we found her and compliment her music. Beyond being highly talented, Lindsay was professional, responsive, and incredibly helpful from the second I contacted her. She also rented her speakers out to us for the dancing portion of the evening for an incredibly reasonable price, and stuck around to help out with them, which was an amazing deal for us as we were trying to make our wedding work on a budget. She responded graciously to every one of my dozens of emails/questions about the logistics leading up to the day. As talented as Lindsay is, she could be charging three times as much as she does (maybe I shouldn't write that), and I would encourage anyone to book her for their wedding or other event!!"

"Lindsay is a delight to work with and a phenomenal musician! I knew I wanted a unique procession but I didn't want to just plug in an iPod and Lindsay was the answer! She made our ceremony extra special by offering such a wide array of contemporary songs (guests came up to us all night to compliment her performance and ask where we found her!) but is skilled enough to also play more traditional tunes as well. She made the planning process so much easier by making sure all questions were answered far in advance of the big day and I would suggest her in a heartbeat to anyone who is looking to hire a live musician for any event."

"I had the pleasure of working with Lindsay first as a bride and as an event planner by trade I was struck by both her professionalism and warmth. I encounter a variety of vendors and manage many relationships, and Lindsay really stands out! She was so easy to work with, never mind beyond talented! After my wedding I was thrilled to able to suggest Lindsay as a great vendor to consider for some of my company events; we host multiple national sales meetings (500+ attendees) each year in addition to a number of client and prospect facing events, and we are always in the market for entertainment. I was able to book Lindsay for a hosted VIP cocktail reception for our top company performers, and again, her professionalism, communication style, and overall business acumen was unmatched. It was a huge hit and I look forward to the next event where I can partner with Lindsay. I recommend her without hesitation."

"I looked and listened to quite a few guitarist/vocalists but knew once I heard Lindsay that I wanted her for our special day. She was instantly responsive and easy going and the range of her music was incredible. She was willing to learn several songs for our special day and when I changed our first dance song at the last minute she adapted beautifully. We are still hearing raves about her performance weeks after our wedding. She truly is an amazing artist and her pricing was pot on if not under priced for what she delivered. Definitely top notch and I can't wait to get our video back to we can hear more of her from the cocktail hour. Hire her QUICK!!"

"Lindsay's music really took our ceremony to another level. Coming around the corner to walk down the aisle, hearing the first few notes of the song and then her beautiful voice transported me. I walked down the aisle with both of my parents and we were laughing and joking around while waiting. As soon as she started playing the song for us, something changed, we all had immediate tears in our eyes, it was time! That was one of the most amazing moments of my life, and her music as the soundtrack was a huge part of the feeling that I remember.  My husband and I really wanted to have a live musician play at the ceremony but we had no clue where to start looking. I went on gigmasters.com and just started listening to local musicians pages. As soon as we landed on Lindsay's and listened to her video of 'On Raglan Road' the search was over. I was sold in probably the first 10 seconds of listening. Her voice is amazing and she is SO talented. She wrote me back immediately and was so friendly and enthusiastic, it just made me more exited to hire her. She was super helpful in the planning of the ceremony music too. I didn't really know where to start and she walked me through what to think about, the different songs I could choose from, etc. We even had particular song in mind for the processional and she suggested a different, slower way to play it so it would make more sense for the processional. It couldn't have been more perfect in the end. She played for the whole cocktail hour as well and I think it created the perfect mood for our guests. Everyone loved her style and commented to me how talented she was. Thank you so much Lindsay, it wouldn't have been the same without you!!"
