Hello, I am Abigail Deeks, a classically trained violinist and pianist based in East Sussex.
My musical journey began at the age of 7, when I began learning the violin. I later trained under Pavel Crisan at The Guildhall School of Music, before going on to study a music degree at Roehampton Institute. With over 20 years of performing and teaching experience, I find myself continuing to return to my classical roots. I also enjoy the variety and pace which folk and rock styles bring. I love playing a more fiddle led technique with my duo The Devil and I and the band Gripper Lee 3. It is both fun and creative.
My aim is that by playing at your event I will be making it meaningful to you. This ultimately creates something very personalised and emotive. I truly believe that my services are there to help you make memories. Delivering a programme which is tailored to each individual need is my driving passion. Whether you are looking for someone to accompany you as you walk down the aisle, a soloist who can add a modern twist to your favourite songs, or someone special to add to your corporate event, I am more than happy to help.
I strive to come to each event or recording session offering the very best in terms of both quality and originality. Have a look through my repertoire list. Or give me something new to learn and explore. I would love the chance to work with you to create a perfect and unique day.
