Songs: Sketches – Wedding and Event Performance

Songs: Sketches

Wedding and Event Performance

Songs: Sketches is Laurie McNamee specialising in female fronted songsmithery! In the genres of:

Alternative, Leftfield and Avant-Garde Rock; Nu, Noir, Anti, Freak and Psych Folk;  Shoegazing; Americana, and the occasional Pop and Brit Pop song!

Specialising in Wedding Ceremonies:
Requests from same sex, non-traditional, alternative marriages are very welcome!

Available for all kinds of events, please contact me with your details!

Other song and artist requests welcomed, but ‘if I don’t like it, you probably won’t like hearing me play it!’ So please look through the artist listings below and get a good idea of what I am offering first.

I offer bespoke musical arrangements and can also offer original compositions – please get in touch for further details.

Instruments available are a combination of female lead vocals, acoustic or electric guitars, celtic harp, banjo, mandolin, and piano (if available on site).
