I would not hesitate to recommend Jamie to anyone. Thank you Jamie!”

5 stars - Jamie Duncan are Highly Recommended booked Jamie Duncan for their event in South Yorkshire

“Our guests were not the best crowd for any performer, some of them had not seen each other for years, but Jamie made the best of it and gave a really good guiitar performance and even sang some of the songs for us. He met all my requests admirably, and the main thing is he made Maureens 65th birthday and our 30th wedding anniversary great. Please thank him for us again.”

Jamie’s music and original style is incredible to watch and listen to

5 stars - Jamie Duncan are Highly Recommended booked Jamie Duncan for their Wedding

“Jamie played at our wedding on the 28.12.18 in a small, quaint village church where I grew up. The minute we heard Wedding Bells my husband and I were in love and couldn’t imagine it not being played at some point during our special day. Not that the song needs it as it sounds original and beautiful on its own, but the acoustics offered by the little church made the whole performance mesmerising and truly impressed our guests who had only positive complimentary comments following the ceremony. Jamie’s music and original style is incredible to watch and listen to. And for my husband and I the perfect accompaniment to us taking our vows.”

“Jamie was not only an extremely talented musician but also highly professional artist in his application regarding the event. He understood precisely what we wanted from the brief we supplied him and his set lists matched the tone and atmosphere of the family friendly relaxed atmosphere that the event is helping enhance here. He was punctual, polite and engaged with the public with musical excellence and personal charm. His finger-style guitar playing with the songs he performed was wonderful to listen to, his arrangements were well chosen and his range was very impressive; many of our visitors were extremely complimentary of both his obvious skill and enthusiasm.”
