Can you perform covers?
We have a range of modern songs we're happy to perform in addition to the traditional Ceilidh music. However, we are not a covers band.
Do you have different line-up options?
Our standard line-up is: fiddle, guitar, clarinet and bodhran + caller (for ceilidhs). However, if you would like a particular instrument, just let us know as we often collaborate with other musicians.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional fee.
How much time do you need to set up?
We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!
Do you provide a caller?
Yes we do! We have a fantastic caller as part of our Ceilidh band who teaches the dances throughout the evening, in a fun and inclusive way so that everyone can join in. It is always a lot of fun!
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA) included in your quote?
Yes! We provide all of the equipment that we need to perform and this is included in the quote.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you.
