Can you perform covers?
Yes we can do covers of traditional and popular folk songs.
Do you have different line-up options?
Our usual line up is fiddle, guitar/mandocello and caller for a ceilidh only. Our caller is also a cellist when three musicians are needed for an acoustic performance.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We are always happy to try to accommodate any changes in timings running up to your event. We take a flexible attitude once we are playing and will discuss with you any minor changes as they might occur.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
We offer the use of our PA equipment for a playlist of your choice on ipod, ipad, laptop etc., played,under the supervision of our sound engineer, for up to 90 minutes immediately following the ceilidh. The fee for this service is £100.
How much time do you need to set up?
It only takes between 30 and 40 minutes to set up, however, we like to start the process about an hour before starting so that we can soundcheck in good time.
Do you provide a caller?
Oh yes, we have a great caller! She is charismatic, enthusiastic and more of an entertainer than an instructor!! She will run the whole evening (like an MC) including making any announcements that you might need.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Our caller uses her many years of experience to decide on the night what dances will work with your guest's dance experience and energy levels but is happy to accept any suggestions you might have.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA) included in your quote?
Yes our quote is fully inclusive with no hidden extras.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Our mandocello player is also a talented singer and is happy to take requests.......however, he is a folk singer so no modern covers!
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Our obvious joy and rapport with our audience! We love what we do and it is our mission to give you a great night of dancing and fun!
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
We are Wedding Ceilidh specialists so ....... Lots and lots of fabulous hotels, village halls, country houses, music venues, private houses, etc.. At Festivals large and small. On hay wagons; in marques and tipees in fields and gardens ........
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Well thats a long story.....there are many!
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
As a ceilidh band we have landed a regular spot at the prestigious Ruff Ceilidhs at Cardiff University Hospital! As individuals I guess its the big festivals - Sidmouth, Towersey, Hay on Wye and more.
