“Banish from your minds all preconceptions of orthodoxy in the world of the violin. Fiona Pears has largely rewritten the script” – The New Zealand Herald 2012

“Feeling, is easily one of the most exquisite pieces of music I’ve heard in a long time – it pours through you and enters your body at a cellular level, so achingly poignant you’d have to be inhuman not to feel its effect”. – Feeling review, The Christchurch Press 2012

“Electrifying’ – ‘extraordinarily animated’–‘featuring rare and natural charisma” – Quecumber, London 2010

Fiona will be performing a mix of styles including tango, Celtic, gypsy and a touch of classical music with her dynamic band featuring Ian Tilley on piano, Mike Ferrar on guitar and Peter Fleming on Double bass.
