Performing as a Pianist in Lincolnshire
My name is Eugene Portman and a good proportion of my work as a pianist is in Lincolnshire. In fact, I always look forward to visiting the county’s many lovely venues and performing for the areas many events. These venues are diverse and are suitable for all types of events, but it is often weddings that bring me to the area.
Me as a Wedding Pianist in Lincolnshire
If you have looked around this site, you will have probably noticed that it is mostly about my work as a sing-along pianist. However, this isn’t all I do. A lot of the work that comes in from Lincolnshire is for weddings and this means that I have to be versatile. That is, versatile in the genres of music I play. It isn’t unusual for me to be required to play a different style of music for each part of the wedding day. To illustrate, classical music is often favoured for ceremonies, whereas jazz is very popular for drinks receptions. Also, a wedding breakfast would usually require a different style of music to an evening reception.
The Baby Grand Piano Shell
There are very few pianos in Lincolnshire’s many venues and any pianist performing in the area would normally use a digital piano. Just for your information, I love digital pianos as they are always in tune, sound great, and are easy to set up in any location. However, there is a downside in the fact that sometimes an event needs something that looks more like a real piano. Luckily, I have the answer in the form of a baby grand piano shell. As its name suggests, it is a shell in the shape of a baby grand piano and discretely contains a normal digital piano. The end result looks good and makes a good centerpiece at any event.
I charge £80 on top of my normal fee for this and it can be set up anywhere.
