Hello! We’re an alternative Acoustic Duo who perform live acoustic music with an indie twist, having combining our influences from americana and indie folk to soul, blues and pop. Vocalist Lucy Sturgess and guitarist Murray Gardiner make up The Hornbeams - mellow female vocals and delicate harmonies paired with acoustic guitar. 

We work with an eclectic mix of songs and play them The Hornbeams way, taking songs from Fleetwood Mac to Radiohead and Kylie Minogue! We have a varied and interesting set, suitable for all audiences.

Based in the South West of England we provide emotive and unique live acoustic music for Weddings, Drinks Receptions and Corporate Events.  Special requests and songs can be learnt for your Wedding Ceremony or Wedding Reception.


Everyone who came up to us during the reception said how amazing the acoustic duo were. So many people asked how we found you and what your names were so that they could contact you for their events. Your music provided the perfect soundtrack to our day and the set list was a great mix for our guests, there really was something for everyone. I caught many of my friends and family having a little sing along! We have since watched back our wedding video clips and we really can appreciate what a talented and wonderful duo you guys are and your music will be with us forever." - Chris & Theresa
