“Graham Starkie has provided PA hire for most of the monthly folk music concerts held at The Barn in Baston over the last ten years. He has been our resident Sound Engineer and has worked with many of the top names in the business.

 He is always punctual and highly professional. Graham is meticulous with his preparation for each concert and artists invariably comment on the level of care and precision which he brings to each performance. He uses equipment of a high specification and is always patient when faced with the unexpected.

 I can recommend Graham without reservation to all promoters and artists. He is also a musician who enjoys music from a wide range of genres. His empathy with performers ensures that the quality of the service is always first class.”

Graham Starkie has supplied pa for and engineered many of our gigs in the Goldmark Gallery over the years.  From the intricate folk instrumentation of Eliza Carthy Trio and June Tabor and Friends to the jazz bebop of the Bennie Maupin Quartet, world music of Sans to the pop sensibilities of This is the Kit to the drum and bass electronica of John Metcalfe, Graham’s ear is always sympathetic, the sound clear, rich and focussed. His work enables these great musicians to communicate directly with their audience without ever getting in the way. What more could you ask for?

Graham Starkie provided the PA rig and sound mixing for the outdoor stage for the 2016 Witchley Warren Festival in Ketton, Rutland. This involved supplying and setting up a full 8K rig and monitors and line checking and mixing five live bands, each with very different requirements (folk, rock, latin and ska).

I can thoroughly recommend the service he offered. The equipment was all set up on time and the sound throughout the event was excellent. Graham was very responsive to the needs of the event organisers and those of the musicians. He also provides this quality of service at a very competitive price.
