Customer questions

Can you perform covers?

We don't do pop/rock covers, although we have a setlist that includes some traditional songs which we perform

Do you have different line-up options?

Full line up is 3 fiddles, piano, guitar and a dedicated caller. This is adaptable to suit your budget.

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?

We can provide this, yes. We also have our own playlist of tunes for playing before the ceilidh, during breaks and at the end. There's normally no extra charge for this, but if the playlist requires us to stay for an extended period after our performance there may be an extra charge, so let us know and we can discuss.

How much time do you need to set up?

We like to have an hour minimum to set up. Hopefully we can arrange the best time during your event to do this so that we create as little disturbance for everyone as possible, and we will discuss this as we make arrangements with you.

Do you provide a caller?

Yes, we have a dedicated caller with a radio headset, we find this allows her to demonstrate the dances much more easily than doing it from the stage, it's also a lot of fun! If you're confident that you don't need a caller, we can adjust our line-up for you.

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

We'll always have a discussion with you about what dances and dance sets you want to include,

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

Yes, it's included

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We have done this, yes! Just ask us and we'll see what we can do.
