Latest reviews of our Folk Bands in Southend-on-Sea

Folkus
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"Folkus played our afternoon event at our wedding. They learned my Wife’s aisle song and our exit song for the ceremony and then played 2 1/2 hours of folk music on the lawn whilst people had drinks and canapés. They made our wedding so beautiful and special. Tom and Zosia are incredible musicians, absolute professionals, and lovely people who made our day perfect. They sent us videos of our songs before hand to check we were happy and were super flexible on the day. I would recommend them completely to anyone for any event! "

FAQs about hiring Folk Bands in Southend-On-Sea

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

Can any folk band play my favourite song?

Professional folk bands will often take requests, but you will need to give them plenty of notice. Please also keep in mind that folk bands may ask for an small additional fee to prepare songs that aren't already on their song list. You can view the folk band's song list on their Encore profile.

How much time do folk bands take to set up?

Your folk band will usually arrive about an hour or so before their performance begins to set up and get settled before they start playing. To avoid any delays, make sure the performance space is ready for the folk band prior to their arrival.

My venue has asked for the performer’s PLI & PAT inspection certificates. What are these?

PLI stands for Public Liability Insurance. This insurance covers damage to another person or their property (it is also known as third party insurance). As many of our folk bands are members of the Musician's Union, they are already covered by PLI up to £10 million. PAT stands for portable appliance testing. Most of our folk bands will already have a PAT inspection certificate for their musical equipment/PA system, which they can provide to your venue if they need it.
