Performing as a Pianist in Cornwall
My name is Eugene Portman and I always enjoy working as a pianist in and around Cornwall. There are a lot of lovely wedding venues in the area and a lot of these venues are in real beauty spots. As a result, this makes Cornwall very popular with couples wishing to celebrate away from the hustle and bustle of the major cities.
My work around Cornwall consists of playing for the piano for many types of events. Besides weddings, I also perform at parties, corporate events and all sorts of themed evenings.
A lot of my work around Cornwall is as a classical pianist which I do find very satisfying. This can range from playing a few pieces for a ceremony to one or two hours of classical music.
Besides classical music, I can play music from many other genres such as Latin, pop, rock, ragtime, sing-a-long, jazz, and swing. This versatility makes my music suitable for all types of events, especially weddings. Although I play many different genres, my main interest lies in the music of the jazz and swing era. My influences are pianists such as George Shearing, Oscar Peterson, and Erroll Garner.
My Work as a Sing-along Pianist in Cornwall
There has been a recent trend in Cornwall to book me as a sing-a-long pianist which is something quite new for me. In fact, this sort of thing is becoming more and more popular and I am really enjoying this kind of work. Also, I can provide all the necessary song sheets and I dress like an old fashioned Cockney pianist. Please visit the sing-a-long page for more information about this.
Also, please don’t just stay on this page. As the rest of the site contains loads of different styles of piano music and does explain the different services that I can offer.
To hear examples of the different styles of music that I play, please visit the following pages:
If you would like help with your ceremony music then please visit the ceremony music page.
Please note that I am always willing to learn any requests that you may have.
