I am looking to hire a musician — guitarist or violinist — based in New London or near by for an afternoon wedding in September. Any suggestions of someone who is talented but still might have a September Saturday available? Thanks!

I would suggest calling Yale. Their students should be back on campus now (or soon will be) and you could look into hiring someone from their Graduate Music program. I’ve known some phenomenal musicians to go there, and you could luck out with being charged a lower rate.

Also check the Hartt School of Music at University of Hartford – they have a gigline that coordinates student and alumni musicians http://harttweb.hartford.edu/about/services/hire.aspx

I have contacted Yale and Hartt and have a few leads. Thanks for the ideas!
