About Eclectic Strings...

We play a few concerts a year around the Cotswolds, and our repertoire includes bits of folk and jazz as well as traditional composers from Baroque and Classical eras. We also enjoy arrangements of show tunes and film themes.


Our conductor - Nicky Akeroyd

Nicky has been a professional musician for almost all of her adult life. Her first 3 years were with the BBC Midland Radio Orchestra under Norrie Paramor until it was disbanded in 1980. Since then she has enjoyed a varied freelance career playing mainly with The Academy of Ancient Music, The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and The Sixteen where she enjoyed trips to the USA, South America and the Far East.

Nicky has been our conductor since November 2019, and brings great enthusiasm to our rehearsals!

Here we are at our last Cricklade concert in 2016...
