About Melissa Whitehead & Andy Watt
Melissa Whitehead and Andy Watt are an experienced fiddle and guitar duo that offer wedding music services in Tyne & Wear. Though usually hired as a duo, they can expand to a trio or quartet upon request. Their repertoire consists of traditional and modern Scottish, Irish, and Northumbrian folk music and they can learn new songs if requested far enough in advance.
As graduates of the Newcastle University folk degree, they specialise in the traditional music of Scotland, Ireland and England. They have performed throughout the UK at weddings, including in Tyne & Wear, Northumberland and County Durham and have played at venues such as Jesmond Dene House, Wynyard Hall and Newton Hall.
Melissa and Andy offer their music services during the wedding ceremony and as background music during the meal. They can also provide a ceilidh afterwards if requested. Their list of pop repertoire is constantly updated and currently include songs by Ed Sheeran, John Legend, Christina Perri and the Beatles. They work closely with their clients to choose the perfect music for the occasion and can arrange specific pieces of music upon request.
