Bellevue Rendezvous was formed in 2006, as a result of a mutual love of beautiful, quirky and varied tunes from all over the world. They are an acoustic trio featuring an unusual combination of instruments - including the nyckelharpa which is very rarely seen in the UK.
The line up is Gavin Marwick (fiddle), Ruth Morris, (nyckelharpa) and Cameron Robson (bouzouki).
In their current repertoire they have many original tunes, as well as music from Scotland, Ireland, England, Wales, Serbia, France, Brittany, Macedonia, Poland, Canada, Finland and Sweden. They have been described as a lovely combination of instruments - the sound lets different sorts of tunes go so well together. They also have been described as vibrant, dynamic, exciting, original, sensitive and lyrical.
'........a highly watchable spectacle. Performing a mixture of world folk music and Scottish strathspeys, not many all-string ensembles can switch with such ease and grace'> - Scotsman
Individually they play or have played with, amongst others, Cantrip, Iron Horse, Unusual Suspects, Deaf Shepherd, Zabalka, Rory McLeod and Jonny Hardie. Since their formation they have been receiving a lot of attention and radio play including a live session on Radio Scotlands Global Gathering, and a performance at the Celtic Connections festival.
