The Massive Violins are a musical ensemble of singing cellists. They play music from a variety of musical genres, only using the cello and voice.
The Massive Violins formed in 2010 and have performed concerts in venues across the UK and internationally, including a biannual concert at Cecil Sharp House. The ensemble were also crowned winners of North London’s Got Talent in 2016.
This concert will feature a joyful journey through some of the best rock and pop songs ever written, from the Beach Boys to Bjork and taking in Elvis, Queen, the Beatles, Adele, Clean Bandit and many more. There could also be a morsel of Mozart, a snippet of Strauss and there will most definitely be a lot of fun!!!
