Hello, I'm James and I am a professional pianist and creative artist from Northumberland, embracing a wide range of styles. I am an instinctive and versatile musician, meaning I can adapt to your needs for your wedding, party or whatever function it is. I have all my own equipment, so it doesn't matter if the venue doesn't have a piano. I have played piano (and Church organ) at countless weddings and at lots of different events. For a demo, just click here.

As I say, I am highly versatile, and am equally at home entertaining you and singing too, in a more lively setting. Check this out!

To discuss a quote, either get me on the contact page, email james@jamestaitmusic.com, or call me on 07582475489.

I also offer piano accompaniment for exams, or instrumental/vocal performances.

While you're here, you might as well check out some of my creative stuff. I am a prolific songwriter, composer and I also write and perform Northumbrian dialect poetry. Go on, treat yourself to a CD or book here.

When the walls come down, released January 2021, is a fine example of James Tait's songwriting in the rock/indie/pop style. It was recorded at the Coquetdale music trust in Thropton and engineered by Adam Forster.
Cowpen Road features renowned accordionist Paul Capaldi and James Tait. There are some Scottish Dance tracks on there as well as some of James's compositions, including the classic, 'The Long Journey Home.'
