Do you have different line-up options?
We most most often provide Celtic Duo's and Trio's for background music for drinks receptions and events. However we also have an experienced Caller and can provide ceilidh dancing too and ensembles of any size upon request!
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We like to be as flexible as possible so this is usually no problem.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
A lot of what we do is acoustic but we do have amplification where needed and when used we can provide a carefully curated playlist of celtic music for breaks.
How much time do you need to set up?
15-45 minutes depending on the size of ensemble and whether we're performing acoustic or amplified.
Can you roam around while you perform?
If performing acoustically
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Can you learn song requests before the event?
If you have a request that isn't already in our list there is a good chance we'll know it or can usually learn a few new pieces if they're traditional tunes :-)
What do your clients love most about your performances?
The liveliness of our musicians!
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Dervish, Altan, Solas...
