The String Fellows were formed in 2014 by guitarists Jake Stentiford and Chris Twigg. The plan was to play a mixture of old gypsy jazz standards, original compositions and modern day rock classics with a gypsy twist. Having quickly made an impact on the Manchester acoustic scene, the duo has since expanded to a quartet featuring Claire Northey on violin and Ryan Hayes on double bass. Known for their frantic and heavily improvised live shows mixed with intricately arranged medleys expect to see String Fellows in a town near you soon.

Alongside their touring and busking exploits String Fellows are also available as a more traditional background music act for restaurants, bars, weddings and other events. This is a flexible line up that could also include brass or guest vocalists.
