Welcome to the website of The String Collective Acoustic Duo

Matt and Jo have been making music together for over 20 years and have enjoyed playing some great shows in some of the best venues in the UK - from Hampton Court Palace and The Guildhall in London to various country houses, hotels, barns and boats elsewhere.

Whether it's your wedding or an occasion you'd like to add life to, The String Collective Acoustic Duo can create a playlist to set the mood.
