A brief history of Midsummer Music…

The Midsummer Music Agency began back in the 90’s as a way of bringing our own Midsummer Ensemble, Midsummer Quartet and Ringerike Ceilidh Band to those who loved music and wanted good music for their weddings and functions. Over a number of years, the agency grew to include the music groups of friends and colleagues around the country, and underwent significant expansion: we now promote over 1200 music groups across the UK. As a result we are able to offer you a wide range of live music groups and bands that cover the Classical, Jazz, Folk and Pop/Rock/Cover genres. 

Head office:

The head office is in Malvern, Worcestershire, UK, but we operate throughout the UK (except for N Ireland). The composer Edward Elgar lived and composed many of his major works in Malvern and his grave is a mile from the office;  The virtuoso classical, jazz and folk violinist Nigel Kennedy made Malvern his home for many years; The Victorian singer Jenny Lind (the Swedish Nightingale) is buried within sight of the office: The English Symphony Orchestra rehearses in a church also visible from our windows, Chandos Symphony Orchestra perform in the Malvern Theatre complex etc. etc. So we are based in a Victorian spa town with a long history of musical connections:  We like to think the musical environment helps our business prosper! Though based on the Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Hereford borders, we are an internet based business and work with musicians throughout the U.K., providing live music for venues nationwide for Weddings, Parties, Anniversaries, Corporate Events, Charity Fundraisers and more.
