Phil and Mahrey Berthoud are Stringing Along


As Stringing Along,  we perform for residents in care and nursing homes, offering a wide variety of music and songs including popular music from 20’s onward.

We encourage active participation and interaction through sing-along songs, rhythm and percussion games, movement to music and cognitive/memory-jogging activities.  We aim to help residents join in as much as they would like and have fun!  Each performance includes a combination of these different elements; with a balance of more gentle songs and music for relaxing and listening.

As well as singing and playing guitars, fiddles, mandolin, ukulele, bodhran and recorder, we also bring along a variety of percussion instruments that can be used by the audience.

We don’t use recordings, so all the music we make is live, making for a more engaging and interesting performance.  If there is a song we don’t know that is a particular favourite, we will be delighted to learn it for our next visit.

Please contact us for more info.


(formerly Fiddlers on the Green) are a Devon-based folk duo featuring Phil and Mahrey Berthoud on fiddles, guitars, vocals, bodhran and mandolin.

"We play traditional and original songs and tunes that span generations and cross borders, reflecting our own lives, those around us and those who came before".  

Rhillig perform original songs and tunes as well as traditional music from the British Isles and beyond.  From fast, fiery and foot-tapping fiddle tunes to beautiful ballads and songs.  You can usually expect to hear the odd unexpected item thrown in for good measure, too!
