Can you perform covers?
No, sorry we do not play covers. You would however be more than welcome to use our PA system to play your own music to break up the evening if you wanted to.
Do you have different line-up options?
We find that the instrumentation within the band does not lend itself to a reduction in musicians as this would drastically alter the sound. We can add an additional fiddle player if required but this would obviously increase the fee charged.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
Of course. If timings should change from those stated in the contract they can be changed if both parties agree and a new contract can be issued.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Whilst we do not offer a DJ service, you would be more than welcome to use our PA system to play music from your own iPod etc to break up the evening. Providing this service outwith our booking times would incur an additional cost.
How much time do you need to set up?
Annasach will arrive at your chosen venue one hour before the agreed playing time to set up. It usually takes us 45 minutes but sometimes it can be a long way from the door to the stage! If your event is running late, please take into account that we will still require this time to ensure that everything is set-up perfectly.
Do you provide a caller?
Yes! Our dance caller, Tricia, (who is probably the most important member of the band!) has years of experience and is guaranteed to calm any nerves and make sure that everyone enjoys themselves. If she can tame Ainsley Harriot then she can do anything!
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
We would be delighted to play any dance you wish and I am sure our dance caller will know it.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA) included in your quote?
Annasach have their own PA system and lights which all have a valid PAT certificate. You are also more than welcome to provide an iPhone/mp3 player which we can connect to our PA.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Yes, if there is a particular dance or song (subject to being suitable for our instrumentation) that you would like us to play for you then we would be happy to learn this. Please do try and provide as much notice of this as possible however.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Our energy, enthusiasm, professionalism and our patience.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Playing for over 25 years together there are not many venues we have not played. From the Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen to the Chateau de Varennes in Burgundy.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Alasdair Fraser, Catriona Macdonald, Duncan Chisholm, Blazin Fiddles
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
Most recently we played for the wedding of Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown and Liam Macaulay in France.
