Doug Badger, Cellist

Weddings & Functions


N a career spanning almost 20 years, I have gained a wealth of experience performing as a cellist for weddings, social functions and private events, both as a soloist and as a member of almost any conceivable ensemble from the traditional string quartet to a full string orchestra!

The cello is a uniquely elegant and beautiful instrument which will provide the perfect musical atmosphere for your special day. Accompanied by one of my esteemed colleagues on the piano, we provide a large and varied repertoire from classical to jazz, pop and beyond.

Using the media player below, you can hear short excerpts of a few of our lighter classical pieces, although this is only a tiny sample of what we can offer. Please Contact me if you would like to see a more comprehensive list of our repertoire and please also be aware that if you have anything in mind that is not currently on our list, we can almost certainly arrange it for you, at no additional cost.

As we offer a range of services and aim to tailor these to your individual needs, we can only offer prices on request, so please fill in our Contact form if you would like a hassle-free, no obligation quote.

If you would prefer a larger ensemble for your event, why not ask me about the Ryebank Trio or alternatively visit my Links page where you will find information and links to some of the other ensembles with whom I also frequently perform. Please be sure to mention my name if you contact them! Again, these are just a taste of what’s on offer so if you still can’t find what you’re looking for, you’d like a quote or you have any other questions, please Contact me and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
