Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have other singers and musicians available of the same or higher standard in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident we will never sacrifice our quality.

Do you have different line-up options?

The standard band is 4 musicians plus one caller. this can be varied by request. For example you may want a smaller or larger band. We always provide a caller.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Don't worry! We're extremely flexible and will work with you to make your event run as smoothly as possible. Just let us know about timings and we'll do the rest.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes we can, although we prefer to play folk music similar to ours while we take a break, just because it helps keep the atmosphere and feel of the evening consistent.

How much time do you need to set up?

A minimum of 1 hour please.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

We come prepared with a list of dances ready for you, but if you have a particular dance you would like us to play and call, just let us know a week or two before the event.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Yes

Can you learn song requests before the event?

As we're a Ceilidh / folk band we don't really get requests, but if you have a particular folk tune you'd like to hear we will always do our best to include it for you.

From customers:

Lynn W, 2019 years ago

I've been to many ceilidhs (Scottish dances) where Kingsfolk have been playing. They are fantastic on many levels - play great music, lovely people and they give talented musical teenagers the opportunity to perform in front of real life audiences. Thanks Kingsfolk - we've spent many an enjoyable evening in your company and recommend you highly!

Duncan C, 2019 years ago

Can I please both thank you and ask you in turn to thank the rest of Kingsfolk for a most amazing night on Saturday. We have received so many great comments from friends and family about how much they enjoyed the barn dance and of course most of that praise must head your way for the excellent way in which you , nobly supported by super Dave the Caller, ran the event. It was great to have music all the time whether as background whilst people eat or during the dancing. The levels were great so I was able to talk with my friends even during the dancing which was something I really wanted to do having shouted at too many people at discos during my life!! It’s fair to say a great evening was had by all .
