Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

We can work in many different formats. 2-piece: this would be the guitarist and fiddle player/singer 3-piece: this would be the guitarist, fiddle player/singer and whistle player/singer 4-piece and 5-piece would be the same as the 3-piece option and a selection of the other 3

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 plug an ipod into our PA so we could play suitable background music before we begin, or if you have a special song you'd like played during the event.

How much time do you need to set up?

We require access to set up 1 hour before the performance time.

Can you roam around while you perform?

We can perform acoustically, so we could roam a little if that is what you require. When we are using the PA we will need to be in one zone.

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

Our set list is designed to give our performance flow and interest. We are happy to discuss this with you.

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

Our quote includes our PA.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If you have a special request please get in touch - if we know it we will play it, and it may be possible for us to learn and rehearse something special. There would be an additional fee for this of £100 as it will require specific rehearsal time.
