Our Cello Duo is a unique alternative to a String Quartet

The Cellists; a quirky alternative to a string quartet

Having performed separately in many a string quartet, professional cellists Cecily Smith Nesbitt and Andrew Nesbitt came together to form what has become “The Cellists” in 2008.  The Cellists is a professional cello duo which performs at weddings and events.  It provides high quality, enjoyable string music, including Classical, Indie, R&B, Rock, Pop, Film and Dance music – see our full range on our music list!

The Cellists are also able to provide flexible group sizes, from a solo cellist to a cello string quartet.

We have wedding musicians in Belfast and Manchester to give the best possible performances at special events across the UK and Ireland. Our cellists perform at the highest level, playing with orchestras such as the Halle, Ulster and RTE Orchestras; providing session music; and performing in string quartet and solo settings around the UK.

Andrew will guide you through the booking process and answer any questions you might have.  We are happy to play any specific requests, and if we don’t already have them on our music list, we can have them specially written for us to play.  Listen to recordings of the songs we are most asked for on our Listen & See page.

Let us give you the same unforgettable performance!

“We loved having you play at our wedding and reception, the music was so beautiful and lots of our guests commented on how nice it was.”
