Franco Cesarelli

I am available as a solo performer in the UK West Midlands within a  40 Mile radius of Birmingham.  Using self prepared accompaniment tracks I can provide  live music for your event at an affordable price.   I have many years experience as a barn dance/ceilidh fiddler.  My programme largely consists of lively Celtic/American dance music.  I also play quieter items including waltzes, airs, film music  and some light classical pieces.  My repertoire is suitable for background, listening and dancing.

"Frank has performed at both care homes on our site in the last few weeks and each time the residents have really loved his playing. There is something for everyone, from Irish or Scottish jigs, to slow, melodic tunes and some familiar old songs. I was looking for something other than the usual round of nostalgic songs we hear all the time and Frank definitely provided that even if residents did not know the tunes, they appreciated the music and I think he genuinely touched the hearts of many people. Residents, their visitors and care staff were all unanimous in saying ‘we must have him back!’

"Hi my name is Claire and I am the Activities Lead here at Ambleside Care Home in Stratford upon Avon.  Franco is a regular entertainer at our home, he is very talented and very good with our lovely residents.  All the residents enjoy his performances and they all clap and sing along as he plays.  Franco’s music has a very positive effect on our residents who are normally left feeling uplifted and relaxed and calm after his performances and the home is left with a positive vibe running through it.  I have and would recommend Franco to anybody.  His performances are in my opinion very beneficial to residents with Dementia.  Everyone looks forwards to Franco’s visits".
