Samantha Bramley – ‘Cellista Repertoire (revised July 2022)

New for 2022

With wedding season 2022 in full swing my ‘in-between weddings’ time is being taken up learning my couple’s special requests and adding a few new songs of my own to the repertoire. From Bridgerton inspired string covers of modern songs to 1980’s classics to Motown, here’s what has made the cut so far:

Best Day of My Life – American Authors; You & Me Song – The Wannadies (from Romeo & Juliet Soundtrack); There She Goes – The La’s; Stay (I Missed You) – Lisa Loeb; Kiss Me – Sixpence None The Richer; Lover – Taylor Swift; Wrecking Ball – Miley Cyrus, Wildest Dreams – Taylor Swift (from Bridgerton Soundtrack); Can’t Help Falling in Love – Hayley Reinhardt; Crazy Love, Brown-Eyed Girl, Have I Told You Lately – Van Morrison; Lady – Kenny Rogers; Everlasting Love – Love Affair; Como es Grande mi Amor – Roberto Carlos; Solveig’s Song – from Peer Gynt by Edvard Grieg; Only You – Yazoo; Somethin’ Stupid – Frank & Nancy Sinatra; Incredible – Gary Barlow; Dancing in the Moonlight – Toploader; Happy Together – The Turtles.

More to follow…

Custom music arrangements are my speciality

I constantly add to my repertoire, & can arrange almost any song for ‘cello & accompaniment.

Don’t Forget:  If the song you love is not listed here I will learn it for you when you book certain wedding packages. How good is that?
