What do your clients love most about your performances?
They love our high energy and positivity, our authentic Scottish input and professional attitude. We understand your event is incredibly important and we want to make it go as smoothly as possible for you. We are incredibly easy-going and polite musicians who love to have craic, because that is what a ceilidh is all about, just having fun with one another.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
We have performed in churches, halls, hotels, bars, clubs, and lots of other venue types.
Can you perform covers?
Yes, no problem. We have a range of modern covers we're happy to perform in addition to the traditional Ceilidh music.
Do you have different line-up options?
As recent graduates across different music degrees at Newcastle University, we are in contact with multiple musicians who are willing to be added to the lineup if required.
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 a PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.
How much time do you need to set up?
We only require no more than 30 minutes to setup prior to the event's start time.
Do you provide a caller?
Yes we do! We have a fantastic caller (Michael McLernon, Paino Accordion) as part of our Ceilidh band so just let us know whether you already have one, or don't need one, so we can adjust our line-up accordingly!
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?
We typically do not require a PA within our setup, but if your event is in a large establishment it is something we can outsource for you for an additional price of £50.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Absolutely. We are more than happy to provide this service, please let us know in advance of this so we can spend time rehearsing your requests!
