Break out the banjo's and get set for a big old barn dance! Folk Kings are here to bring their roots-driven, Mumford & Sons style sound to bare on all your favourite hit tunes. A fun-filled, unforgettable addition to your festival themed wedding or high-end corporate function. Folk Kings are one of the UK's most popular live bands for the festival-themed wedding, and it really isn't hard to see why. They take their incredible musical talent and use it to sculpt two sets of captivating live music: The first takes a stunning selection of songs spanning four decades and offers them up with a whole new Folk driven spin; complete with banjo, double bass and soaring vocal harmony. For the second set, they go hard and loud with a blistering indie-rock set filled with your favourite festival tunes.

All's that's left for you to do is dance into the early hours with the people you love! The band features four of the country's most prestigious session musicians, with a collective resume that is simply mind-blowing. Between them, their studio credits include Robbie Williams, Ed Sheeran, Roachford and Kylie Minogue among many others. They have shared the stage with acts ranging from The Rolling Stones to Hot Chip, at world renowned venues such as The O2, Hammersmith Apollo, Royal Festival Hall and The Barbican. Their lead singer, Jamie, was previously signed to U.K. major label Island Records, and members of the band have performed live on US hit TV shows including Smallville, Charmed and The Late Late Show.

THANK YOU, for making our day so perfect and special. We could not have asked for a better day! We are still on cloud nine and we can’t stop looking at all the photos from the day. Everything went so smoothly and all our guests were so impressed by the evenings entertainment. You really know how to get the party started. Our guests could not tear themselves away from the dance floor. It was just a perfect fit for us, the music, your personalities, your professionalism. The service you provided is a credit to the hard work and dedication you put into your job. I know you must have hundreds of weddings but you made us feel like we were the only ones! We honestly cannot thank you enough for all your hard work. I hope our guests weren’t too crazy, many have said that it’s the best wedding they have ever been to! Please do pass my message onto all the team so they are aware of what an asset you are to all the couples you entertain for.

Folk Festival Kings were just awesome! They played at our wedding a few weeks ago and I really cannot thank you all enough for making the evening so memorable, personal and perfect. The band were very professional & personable, they arrived with plenty of time for set up and once they started playing - WOW! All the guests are still talking about how great you were and what a fantastic evening they had, I don't think I left the dance floor all evening and you truly added to making our day so perfect. As having experience planning a wedding, I felt a little nervous not knowing exactly how the band would be as I hadn't seen them in person, however hands down the band really are fantastic and I would recommend to anyone booking them for an event or very special day. A big thank you to you all we hope to see you again soon at another wedding, or maybe we will plan another party :-)
