From other customers:

Duchas Anam were excellent entertainment. Very friendly band who were willing to have a go at whatever we requested! Well worth employing for a fun night of live music

Tarlach, L, 4 years ago

Duchas Anam were great value for money. We had them at London School of Economics for a St. Patrick's Day party for Irish and non-Irish students and they were very well received. Band members were lively and played a variety of instruments. Stayed even after they were finished to allow us to use the sound system for additional songs. If you are familiar with Irish music or not, they are a great choice!
