Quartet Strings

Echo Strings are a versatile, dynamic, all female string ensemble based in Liverpool. Lara Simpson formed the group in 2015 whilst she was studying at Paul McCartney’s music college “The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts”. Echo Strings regularly perform at weddings, corporate events and private functions around the UK and overseas. Members of Echo Strings also make up the string section of top UK tribute band ‘The ELO Show’ and they have also played backing strings for Britain’s Got Talent’s ‘Richard & Adam’. They have featured three times on Hollyoaks on Channel 4, they are the resident string quartet with ‘Incredible 11’ an 11 piece hip-hop orchestra based in the Baltic Triangle and they perform annually as part of Radio City’s Cash for Kids Christmas Concert. They also frequently collaborate with bands and artists in Merseyside and beyond including; Robert Vincent, The Christians, Ian Prowse & Amsterdam, Zuzu, Circa Waves and many more. Members of the ensemble are professional arrangers and are able to score original string parts for bands and artists, whilst also being able to arrange any song request for weddings and other events.

Working with Lara and the girls in Echo String Quartet has been an absolute pleasure. Having contacted LIPA to enquire about availability of students, Lara from Echo String Quartet, was very prompt in responding with video footage and a bio. The Telegraph Cruise & Travel Show was a two day event at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool from 10am-5pm on Saturday and 10-4pm on Sunday. As the only string quartet at the event, it was quite demanding on the girls to play across both days with 1-1.5hrs sessions on a tight schedule. Their performances were fantastic and provided our visitors with a relaxing and intimate atmosphere within our Cream Tea Experience. We have received many lovely comments from our visitors since the show, and I would highly recommend Echo String Quartet for any event that requires a classy and sophisticated musical accompaniment.
