Arbutus is a noteworthy string trio born in the summer of 1998; we were asked to play at a friends wedding and we had such fun and so many compliments that we decided not to stop there.


Let’s introduce ourselves; we are Pam, Melanie and Jan, a string trio consisting of two violins and a cello. Now we spend most of our summer weekends playing at weddings, parties, corporate events and other functions. Our music ranges from popular masters like Vivaldi, Pachelbel and Bach to songs from the shows, light contemporary tunes, favourites from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s right up to the Corrs and Robbie Williams!


We are three vibrant highly presentable professional musicians all very busy teaching and playing as well as caring for our families: we have nine children between us! Through our playing we have become firm friends and there is nothing we enjoy more than getting together and making music.


If you are planning a wedding, function or special occasion and would like your meal or reception accompanied by a delightful music and cheery musicians, why not call us?
