Manic idiot violinist Sid Bowfin- unpredictable and unique. Sid's walkabout can be performed to any number of people from one upwards. He has a repertoire of over 200 pieces and can play standing, sitting, kneeling or walking around with a volume ranging from extremely quiet to full acoustic violin volume.

Sid also has a weather resistant violin so can cope with light rain and scorching sunshine.

The Sid Bowfin Show is also available.

Our virtuoso violinist combines madcap comedy with superb musicianship. Watch Sid and his audience compete, argue, ridicule and seduce their way through the most popular works from across centuries, turning classical performance on its head with Sid's hilarious spontaneous comedic antics.

Crowds will revel in his renditions of Mozart’s one-legged Rondo, Vivaldi’s secret agent Winter, Brahms's Hungarian dancers and Rossini’s choir of barbers. There’s even Sid’s legendary ‘requests section’. 

Classical comedy for everyone!

‘Thank you for your fabulous set at our Christmas Lights Switch On. You were a much needed energy injection to the crowd on a very dismal day. Your professionalism during the technical hitch was fantastic - incorporating it into your act really helped to cover the problem to the crowd! A brilliant job all round….we look forward to working with you again in the future!!’

Such a pleasure to work with, lovely chap, and extremely talented performer.
