Excellent musicians! Professional, prompt and I can't praise them enough. They really made my wedding party a resounding success. They communicated so well and really 'read' the guests and the venue brilliantly. It was a mixed party and they catered for all ages no problem. Thank you Roy and the Oran Mor Ceilidh Band. A big WOW!

I recently asked Roy Hendrie and his Ceilidh band Oran Mor to play at my 40th birthday party, They were fantastic at getting us going, reminding us of the steps and even played some French waltzes when realising some of the guests were French. Highly recommended.

We were delighted to invite Roy Hendrie and Dave Morrice to provide a Concert at our Soar Valley Accordion Club, Leicester. Roy has many years experience in performance and technical abilities of various midi sound equipment which was very evident in his performance on the evening. Dave Morrice a very experienced multi-instrumentalist provide some outstanding violin and guitar lead / backing to Roy’s undisputed expertise on the accordion. It was evident from their standard of playing that everyone present enjoyed their various styles of music on the night and a number of their Cds were purchased on the evening. An outstanding concert was provided by Roy and Dave to our Club and we would be only too pleased to re-book Roy and Dave for further performances in the future.
