The Jacobites
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"My husband and I had the pleasure of having the Jacobites perform for our Scotland wedding at Killochan Castle, and let me tell you, they were unbelievably fantastic, fun, and talented. They got everyone up and dancing like crazy! They were kind and patient and took time to teach everyone how to Ceilidh dance (and yes, it took a while..) Their communication was quick and straightforward which allowed everything to flow seamlessly. I wish I could hire them to come and play in the states! Thank you all again for being such a fun addition to our big day! E&C"
