More information about Peter David

After getting side-tracked with an arts degree, I got down to the serious stuff whilst travelling and found myself playing for cash in bars around Australia, Asia, and Europe.

Once back in Dublin I studied classical guitar for several years with the likes of Kevin Robinson and Allen Grundy, before heading off to the caves of Andalucia where I learnt flamenco from two of its doyennes: José Ignacio Franco and El Carbonero.

In the years since I moved to Paris, founded a pop band — an intriguing foray into the world of magazine photo shoots, TV miming and festival green rooms.

Here are just some of the locations where I have been booked by clients on FixTheMusic for weddings and events...

  • Château Les Carrasses, Quarante, France
  • Monestir de Sant Salvi, Sant Miquel de Cladells, Spain
  • Château d'Agel, France
  • Château d'Oche, Saint-Priest-les-Fougères, France
  • Les Hortensias du Lac, Hossegor, France
  • Roullens, France
  • Boudy-de-Beauregard, France
  • Aigues-Mortes, France

So if you're looking to hire the finest wedding guitarist Carcassonne has to offer for your wedding or event, get in touch with Peter David.

"Peter did an excellent job playing classical guitar at our wedding in the south of France. He was lovely, friendly, quick to respond and helped me find music for the aisle. He played beautifully during the reception where people commented he was the next Ed Sheeran! Thank you again Peter!"

"We hired Pete to play during our wedding ceremony and also at our reception. We had a list of songs for our ceremony varying from Psalms to Cavatina, Wonderful World, Hallelujah etc. and Pete accommodated all our requests with ease. Pete's enchanting flamenco melodies during our reception were the perfect backdrop to our wedding day."

"Pete’s beautiful guitar playing was the magic touch that made our wedding ceremony. In fact, he received an unprompted standing ovation from the church audience at the end of one of the songs. (I’ve never seen that at a church wedding!) Each song was delivered beautifully and perfectly. Pete worked with us to pick the selection of songs that were just right for both myself and Sinead and the big day itself. I would highly recommend Peter both as an excellent musician and a consummate professional to work with."

"I booked Pete's guitar duo to play at my cocktail party in the 16arr in Paris and they were incredible. They played very discretely and sweetly for the first half of the evening. When they noticed that the alcohol was having an effect on my guests and people wanted to dance they played exciting tunes from their repertoire that people were able to dance too. Highly recommend these two!"

"Working with Peter David was fantastic. We hired him for the ceremony and cocktail hour for our son's wedding in Spain at the Monastir Sant Salvi. He was an excellent musician with a vast knowledge of different genres of music. His performance was thoughtful and thoroughly enjoyable. He was intuitive, personable, interesting and the ultimate professional. Peter made adjustments to his set up and routine based on the heat of the day and moved to where the crowds gathered. We would highly recommend him and would use him again."

"We are so happy to have had the magic and pleasure of having Pete play at our garden wedding this summer. From the very first contact Pete was so friendly and helpful and we loved the playlist he helped us to choose. His wonderful music filled the gardens so beautifully and created the perfect romantic ambience throughout. Then Pete instinctively knew when and how to up the pace for the evening too. Not only are we very grateful to have had his help on the day but we feel like we made a friend."

"Pete played for us at Chateau Canet in August as we renewed our vows to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. He played everything we’d asked for along with his own pieces. It was soft and intimate until after the ceremony and that’s when the crowd really got involved, everyone was dancing and singing along! He even let a couple from the party play a piece which was great fun. We would DEFINITELY recommend Pete to play for any occasion."

"Pete played the guitar at our wedding in Pamiers, in August. He played during our ceremony and during the aperitif. From the very beginning of our contact with Pete he was always very responsive to all our messages and queries. He was extremely helpful in providing pointers about how many songs were needed during the ceremony etc. We found Pete to be friendly, approachable, and highly professional. His music provided such a great ambience. A lot of our guests commented on how wonderful the music was. We are so glad that we had Pete playing the music at our wedding. We would definitely recommend him and wouldn’t hesitate to use him again."

"Pete played for our wedding in June of this year in a church in Trêbes. There was such a variety of songs to choose from for our special day we were spoilt for choice! So much so we booked Pete to play for our BBQ the next day in the Chateau. Pete is an amazing artist and even went out of his way to learn a song for our song selection for the church. Everyone loved his style of music and was just perfect for what we were looking for to make our day special. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed his take on the 'Game of Thrones' theme. He fitted right in with the guests and was great at entertaining when people entered the church."

"Pete played the music for both our ceremony and also our cocktails/canapes in the afternoon and was fantastic - he very kindly learnt Queens 'You're my best friend' which I walked down the aisle too, which was amazing and such a beautiful arrangement. All of our guests said how great Pete was and the variety that he played was spot on - it was the perfect style of music for the occasion and we couldn't have wished for anything better. Thank you to Pete for being part of our wedding and making our day all the more special!"

"We cannot thank you enough, Pete, for adding your magic to our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding. Everyone just raved about your music. It was so beautiful. You are a profoundly talented musician, and your selections were so wonderful, so tasteful! They were just perfect. In addition, you had a wonderful energy about you, which really complemented the spirit of the occasion. Thank you for being a part of our celebration."

"Pete played the ceremony and drinks reception at our wedding at Chateau de Pennautier and we would highly recommend him if you are looking for a guitarist for your wedding! We are from Scotland and Pete very kindly learned and played a beautiful arrangement of Caledonia for when I walked down the aisle, I'll never forget hearing it as I walked down, it was so beautiful and there wasn't a dry eye in the house! Lots of people commented on it as well as the other great variety of tracks that Pete played throughout the drinks ceremony, it all went down very well and was that special extra touch on our day. Communication was great on the lead up to the day and we felt at ease that Pete would work hard to help make it a special occasion for us which he did! Thanks!"
