Do you have different line-up options?
We are a 5 x piece band playing 9 instruments between us. Namely guitar, bass, bass fiddle, bodhran, stomp, banjo, mandolin & harmonica. Coupled with and if looking for a Ceilidh, the 2 of our members are also dance callers.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We can with a reasonable amount of notice
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes we have a MP3 player with pre loaded music that fits with our vibe but if you have a device with a 3.5ml jack and prefer to play your music then yes we can pass that through our rig.
How much time do you need to set up?
Typically about 1:15 to 1:30 hrs to set up and 1:00 hr to break down
Can you roam around while you perform?
To a degree. A few of us have wirless links from our instruments back to the desk and our dance caller for Ceilidhs uses a wireless mic.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Yes we have a large number of songs and tunes we play so please feel free to ask us to include any you particularly like.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
We are totally self sufficient. All we need is access to a 13amp socket. Bear in mind we're a 5 x piece band so require a wee bit more space
Can you learn song requests before the event?
As we re always looking for inspiration and so long as it has a Celtic vibe and we can included it as part of the set then yes let us know if there is something in particular and we'll see what we can do
