Sharon Hubbocks "The Magic Bow"


Sharon began violin lessons aged 8 with teacher Ralph Barker in her home town of Huddersfield. She quickly rose through the music scene, winning competitions and eventually leading the Kirklees Youth Orchestra, after which she studied with the renowned teacher Herbert Whone of Harrogate.

Sharon performed for several years under the name ‘The Magic Bow’, sometimes with classical guitarist John Kaye or pianist David Wood, playing at weddings, garden parties, festivals, fairs and concerts.

After moving to Devon in 2002 Sharon played with many orchestras and ensembles including The British Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, Taunton Sinfonietta and South West Sinfonietta. She is a regular player with Plymouth Philharmonic Choir Orchestra and South Devon Choir Orchestra and was also a member of steampunk outfit The Copperfield Ensemble. Sharon has undertaken session work including for television and is in demand as a freelance violinist/violist.
