Chris Haigh's Bio

Violinist covering an impressive variety of styles including Eastern European, Irish, Scottish, French, Italian, Russian, American folk and many more.

Chris Haigh has performed on his violin for a glittering array of notables including Jefferey Archer, Tony Blair, Princess Diana, Tom Hanks, Elton John, Naomi Campbell, Michael Caine, Kylie Minogue, Dame Judie Dench, Brian May, Mohamed Al Fayed, Barbara Cartland, Ruby Wax, Princess Michael of Kent, David Frost, David Beckham, Kate Winslett, William Hague, Uri Geller, Chris Evans, Terence Conran, Michael Howard, Michael Portillo, Lord Owen and the cast of East Enders.

Chris has also played and recorded with a motley crew of musicians including Alison Moyet, Michael Ball, Steps, Morcheeba, James Galway, Zumzeaux, Oumou Sangare, Ricky Cool and his Western Swing Allstars, Diz Disley, Le Jazz, The Hot Club of London, Robin Katz, Kimbara Brothers and many more!

Chris Haigh currently plays regularly in Tziganarama (as heard on sound clip above – Eastern European and Russian band for whom he also composes most of the material), Quicksilver (Barn Dance band playing English, Irish, Scottish and American folk music), The Kremlinaires (7 piece Soviet Swing band), Café du Monde (fiddle and accordion duo playing music from all around the world) with Alan Dunn and Acoustica!, a new group combing folk and jazz.

A much in-demand musician for recording sessions and live performances, Chris has managed to combine a classical music education with the abilities to improvise, making him an exceptional musician suiting an enormous range of styles. Primarily a violin (or fiddle) player, he is also no mean slouch on the mandolin.

“Hi,
Just a quick note to say thank you and Chris for the performance on Saturday. He was a great success the client was very grateful.

Look forward to working with you again soon.
Best wishes,
Jo”
