We had Lindsay play for our outdoor ceremony and she was amazing. We discussed song choices beforehand and everything went smoothly. We could not have asked for a better musician to play at our ceremony. Highly recommend!!Sent on 09/26/2019

We had Lindsay perform ceremony music for our wedding and she was wonderful! Our ceremony was outside and she came prepared with all of her equipment and arrived promptly to set up. She was great to work with and helped us create the exact music selection that we wanted for our ceremony! My only regret is that I did not get to hear more of her music leading up to the start of the ceremony. I would highly recommend working with Lindsay!Sent on 11/14/2019

Wonderful acoustic musician for any wedding or event!
From start to finish Lindsay was incredibly professional, kind, flexible and helpful! She even helped give me recommendations for another friend who was looking for musical services for an unrelated event. When the day of the wedding came, she truly helped make the whole day go beautifully and smoothly. Her singing and guitar playing is outstanding and she is very friendly and professional! She was a pleasure to work with and so talented! I will recommend her time and time again!Sent on 09/11/2019

We saw Lindsay perform at another friends wedding years ago and I knew immediately I wanted her at mine. Her voice is beautiful and her song choices are varied yet cohesive, there is something for everyone! We received so many compliments about her singing, she adds a unique and personalized touch to every wedding she performs at. She is incredibly easy to work with, I highly recommend her to all!Sent on 09/15/2019

Wonderful musician - highly recommend!
Lindsay Straw performed for the ceremony and cocktail hour at our outdoor wedding and was absolutely magical. She has an incredibly beautiful voice and set the perfect mood for our wedding. So many of our guests came up to us during our reception and after the wedding to comment on how wonderful Lindsay was and we couldn't agree more!Sent on 08/23/2019
She was also incredibly professional and so easy to work with. We went to see her perform at the Arlington Farmer's Market and met with her after to discuss booking her. She was so helpful and her music was so lovely at the farmer's market that we knew we had to book her. We are so happy that we did! She made the whole process seamless and it was fabulous not to have to worry about the music at all. Our wedding was also outside on the hottest day of the year and Lindsay didn't bat an eye! We can't recommend her highly enough and would strongly encourage anyone to book her for their event.

Totally would recommend
Lindsay is awesome. We met with her before the wedding to give her an idea of what we wanted in terms of music. I had chose to have live music by Lindsay for the ceremony and cocktail hour with a DJ for the reception. Everything transitioned so smoothly from the ceremony to the cocktail hour. I would definitely recommend her-plus she is super affordable. She is easy going which made the process easy.Sent on 07/25/2019

Everything we hoped for!
I watched my wife walk down the aisle while listening to Lindsay Straw sing, and it was absolutely perfect. Lindsay has a beautiful voice and and is a talented guitarist. Her performance was everything we hoped it would be.Sent on 07/18/2019
We booked her after seeing her perform at a friend's wedding, and we immediately knew she was exactly what we wanted. She was very easy to work with and very professional. We cannot recommend her enough.

Beautiful voice and very professional
Lindsay was wonderful from beginning to end! She worked within our budget and provided exactly what we were looking for in providing music for our ceremony and cocktail hour, plus managing a playlist we created for "dj lite" services. She has a beautiful voice and was so laid back and flexible in working with us as we figured out what we wanted the music to be. She arrived on time and set up everything and the music was perfect and created the most peaceful vibe for our outdoor wedding. I would work with her again in a heartbeat and highly recommend her!Sent on 07/08/2019

Beautiful music for ceremonies and cocktail hours
We hired Lindsay to play during our ceremony and cocktail hour. Based on the structure of the day my wife and I really only heard the processional and recessional music but everything we heard from her was absolutely fantastic. She is both a talented singer and guitarist and has an enormous repertoire, so we were able to choose exactly what we wanted for the wedding.Sent on 06/30/2019
Lindsay was very accommodating throughout the planning process, including playing an instrumental version of one of her songs that one of our bridesmaids, a professional singer, performed to, even sending that bridesmaid an altered recording in advance for practice. Lindsay was a delight to work with and we highly recommend her!
Lindsay & Jordan - Acoustic Duo's reply:Thank you so much, Catherine! :) It was such a joy working with you both, and getting to accompany Rachel.
Olivia · Married on 06/01/2019
Very talented and a perfect hire for our wedding
Lindsay and her partner played at our wedding for the ceremony and cocktail hour. They played a special song at our request and it was beautiful. Lindsay has a beautiful voice and is a very talented musician. She had a lot of songs in her repertoire that we loved and she was super easy to work with - very organized and great communication.Sent on 09/23/2019
Jeff P. · Married on 05/26/2019
For our outdoor beach wedding on the Cape, we knew we wanted music that would be simple and beautiful, and decided a solo singer with acoustic guitar would best fit the setting and atmosphere we wanted. We went with Lindsay based on her great reviews and could not have been happier with the experience - not only is she an amazing performer with a beautiful voice, she is a consummate professional who is organized, responsive, and attentive to all the details that go into making a wedding a success!Sent on 06/27/2019
We really appreciated her broad song list repertoire, that she had her own A/V equipment and setup options (she ended up bringing battery-powered speakers and two wireless mics for the outdoor beach ceremony where electrical outlets weren't available, which also meant amplifying the officiant / grooms was taken care of), that she took special requests and learned a song my mother-in-law wanted for the ceremony, and that was also willing to perform some light emceeing / DJ duties during the reception to help move things along. Best of all, she went the extra mile and worked with me beforehand on providing accompaniment so I could serenade my husband as a surprise. The day of the wedding, she arrived early to make sure everything was set up properly, and we never had to worry about whether she knew her cues or where she had to be next, and things went off without a hitch!
Several of our guests came up to us afterward to comment on how beautiful the music was during the ceremony and reception, and how calm and peaceful they felt hearing Lindsay's wonderful guitar-playing and singing on the beach. I can 't recommend working with her highly enough and am so grateful she was available to be part of our special day!
Lindsay & Jordan - Acoustic Duo's reply:Thank you so much, Jeff! I loved working with you through the whole process, and accompanying you for "Your Song" was the best!

Lindsay Straw is a must have for your wedding ceremony. Just give her music a quick listen and you'll know right away she should be your choice. Don't even waste time looking for others. You have plenty of other vendors to plan out. This one is a no brainer!

Lindsay & Jordan - Acoustic Duo's reply:Aww, thank you, Costa! That's such a big compliment. :) I really enjoyed working with and playing for you both!

Got Lucky at Foxwoods!
My husband and I planned our April 6th wedding in just two months, and a month or so out we were still at a loss for what type of music we wanted for our Ceremony and our Cocktail Hour (We aren’t really ‘harp music’ people). After some searching at various Entertainment sites, we found Lindsay Straw on Gigmasters.com. We loved her acoustic guitar and beautiful voice. She also has her own website for her music and offerings https://www.lindsaystraw.com/. With both of us being Irish, her wide selection of Classical, Pop/Folk/Standards, and Celtic music really checked all the boxes.Sent on 06/05/2019
Lucky for us, she had our date open, so we set up a phone call with her and walked through what we were looking for, and she shared how she normally handles things. Here website has a LONG list of songs to choose from. She said we could make a list for her to pull from, or give her some guidelines and she’ll fill in what seems to be working best. We also opted to ‘upgrade’ and have her musical partner Jordan Santiago join her on mandolin & violin.
Well, we can’t tell you what rave reviews our guests gave us about both the Ceremony music and the selections for Cocktail hour. PLUS, they were able to cover a 15 min delay/panic as we lost the binder we had all of our readings in for the Ceremony (life savers)!
If you want something different than the usual harp, or string quartet, or even DJ music, you’ll be hard pressed to find someone as talented, charming and versatile as Lindsay. She’ll make your special day THAT much more special.

Highlight of our reception, Very talented musicians
Lindsay and Jordan were a highlight of our wedding reception. They are very talented musicians and can play many different types of music. Our wedding was held at a camp in central Mass and we wanted a folk acoustic feel, which they can play perfectly. Lindsay and Jordan learned our favorite song for our first dance, and had everyone in tears for when we danced with our dads. She was so helpful in recommending songs for specific moments of our wedding and very accommodating and flexible when setting timelines for our day. From the beginning Lindsay was very professional and quick to respond to emails. One thing we were most impressed with was her ability to get to know us and what we wanted for music on our wedding day. They played a good balance of crowd favorites and their original songs, which gave our reception a unique and personal touch. They were naturals at feeling out the vibe of our venue/guests and setting the tone that we wanted. Lindsay and Jordan were a perfect fit for our reception and we are so happy to have booked them. The music was unique and loved by all of our guests. People were up dancing and sitting, enjoying the lovely music.Sent on 01/19/2019
As a same-sex couple, Lindsay and Jordan were a safe and comfortable option for us.
Lindsay & Jordan - Acoustic Duo's reply:We were so happy to play for you both, and for your incredibly appreciative and sweet family and friends! Thank you so much, Emily & Jenna!

amazing ceremony musician!
Lindsay played guitar & sang for our ceremony, and she was truly phenomenal. We weren't sure what we were going to do about music for our ceremony, but when I came across samples of Lindsay's music online, I knew that we wanted her! She has a huge variety of songs available to choose from, including so many songs that we love. (She will learn one that you request, if you're looking for something that she doesn't already know.) Lindsay was so easy to work with, responsive, and professional; we really knew we were in good hands. The only downside is that, as the bride, I didn't get to hear any of the music before the ceremony! But I heard from so many guests about how great she was and how much they enjoyed the music before and during the ceremony. Can't recommend highly enough!Sent on 10/31/2018

Perfect addition to our ceremony and cocktail hour!
Lindsay played during our ceremony and cocktail hour - and we couldn't have been happier with how it went! She was great to work with, overall a seamless booking process. She had a large music selection and we received a lot of compliments from guest after the event on the music. Definitely recommend booking for your event.Sent on 10/30/2018
Michele · Married on 09/15/2018
Lindsay and Jordan were awesome! Initially our wedding was going to be outdoors and then we decided on a church wedding. Lindsay was very flexible in coordinating the music with our church music director and our wedding was beautiful. She also did the cocktail hour for the reception so she needed to move very quickly after the ceremony and get to our venue, set up and play music! She did this seamlessly. They are a perfect duo and we were so happy to have them. The music is beautiful and the overall experience working with Lindsay was great. We highly recommend her!Sent on 10/03/2019

I can not say enough good things about Lindsay! She was so amazing! I always wanted to walk down the aisle to Everlong by The Foo Fighters and she learned how to play it for me.

Beautiful addition to an amazing day!
Lindsay Straw was incredible from the minute we decided to book her to the day of the wedding. She had great suggestions for the cocktail hour, and the ceremony music. We have a big Irish family, and she was able to give us great suggestions for traditional music that fit our theme. Her voice and guitar skills are hard to beat! She did a custom version of the Ed Sherran Galway Girl for us, and she knocked it out of the park! We even had a little moment where a bridesmaids fainted and she was calm, cool, and collected and still played through the whole thing! Thank you Lindsay!!Sent on 11/10/2018
Rachel · Married on 07/28/2018
Amazing Irish music!
Lindsay was the best! My husband is from Northern Ireland, so we knew we wanted to incorporate some traditional Irish music into our ceremony and dinner. When we found Lindsay, we didn’t look at any other musicians. Her voice is amazing, and her blend of traditional Irish songs and pop/folk songs was perfect for us! She was professional and responsive and so sweet! She even learned the song that my husband proposed to me with as a surprise to him when I walked down the aisle. She gave me a recording of it to keep, and it’s so special. Thank you Lindsay!Sent on 12/17/2018
Lindsay & Jordan - Acoustic Duo's reply:Aww, Rachel! Thank you so much for the kind review! It was such a joy working with you and learning the Foy Vance song for you and Luke. I’ll always think of you guys and your beautiful, almost-stormy wedding day when I play it!
Stella · Married on 06/25/2018
Lindsay performed at our wedding ceremony and it was such a wonderful experience! Booking was a very easy process and she was very easy to work with and flexible in terms of picking the songs we wanted and the schedule for the day. She also asked all the right questions in preparation and it really made us feel at ease that everything would go well on the big day (e.g. if we needed an amp/mic for the venue). She also checked in the few days leading up to the wedding so we knew she'd be there at the right time.Sent on 07/24/2018
At the wedding, Lindsay arrived early to set up and was ready to play soon as our guests started to arrive. She was very cheerful and professional. Not to mention her voice was really beautiful and set the perfect mood for the day! Would definitely work with Lindsay again and recommend her highly to anyone else looking for a musician for their wedding/event.

Deanna · Married on 06/02/2018
Lindsay was beyond amazing, I can't say enough nice things about her and the special touch she brought to our wedding. Lindsay played during our ceremony and cocktail hour. First and foremost, she has the most beautiful and enchanting voice (we heard a sample and were hooked immediately). She was very easy to work with and so helpful throughout the entire process. Lindsay worked with us early on to get an idea of how she would best fit in and what we were looking for in terms of music choices. She provided guidance for the different songs that play during the ceremony and then what type of music she would play at the cocktail hour. We had so many guests come up to us asking about Lindsay and saying how wonderful she was and that she really made the ceremony special. I would recommend her over and over again and we look forward to seeing her at some of the other shows she plays around us! Thank you Lindsay!Sent on 06/21/2018

Andrew · Married on 04/28/2018
If you've listened to some of Lindsay's music, and you think it might be a fit for your wedding, do not hesitate! Lindsay was super responsive through the whole process. She has a super helpful website about when to use music during your ceremony and what to consider in your selections as well as a list of the songs she plays. When there was a song she didn't have a preview posted for, she even sat down and recorded it that evening to send to us. Her voice and playing were so beautiful and added so much to our day. Friends and family all made sure to tell us how much they enjoyed Lindsay's contribution.Sent on 06/17/2018

I can’t NOT say enough about Lindsay. Her voice, her talent, her music catalog, her professionalism, and her willingness to learn a new song if it’s not in her repertoire- she was contracted to do my ceremony music and cocktail hour and my guests could not stop raving about her. I wanted someone who had a Celtic sound and catalog on top of contemporary and she was amazing. Her rendition of Over The Rainbow and the Irish Wedding Song, I can’t even. . BOOK HER NOW!!!Sent on 02/01/2018
