What if my timings change after I've booked you?
Everything is open to discussion. If travelling long distances, we prefer early start, early finish
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
We normally play some suitable "folky" music for any extended breaks. We do dances in twos and don't usually have a long break between sets. If you want to provide your own music for first dance etc. we can usually plug your ipod/phone into our pa. We are happy to advise on this.
How much time do you need to set up?
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes, we can discuss dance order. We usually play it by ear how the evening pans out.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes. All we ask is to be able to see and 4 chairs without arms. We only need 1 power socket if playing amplified We can play acoustic - please discuss first.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes - we will have a go. (If it will work with accordion)
