Kieran Francis Begley & Emily Ashton - a real couple, brought together through performing together! As working professional actor-musicians trained in Musical Theatre and Acting, we have both been performing for a number of years. We offer an incredibly versatile range of acoustic covers on guitar and piano, as well as being able to offer solo classical or contemporary piano for any portion of your special day. Our set list ranges from pop and traditional folk covers to jazz and musical theatre, and we take great joy in being able to tailor our set list to perfectly suit the atmosphere of your wedding or event.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

As a real couple, we take great joy in performing together and we are always told that this really shows! The versatility of what we can offer is also always commented on - we are able to really tailor our set lists / set ups to suit the atmosphere you want to create!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Between us we have performed on stages all over the UK including at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Wembley Troubadour, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Glasgow’s Kings Theatre, Beacon Arts Centre, Eastwood Park Theatre, Glasgow’s Oran Mor, Motherwell Civic Theatre, The Ayr Gaiety, and at the Edinburgh Fringe (Riddlers Court/Assembly Hall).

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Our biggest pop influences include James Taylor, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, The Script, Boyce Avenue, and Kelly Clarkson. As musical theatre performers, we are greatly influenced by contemporary singers such as Ben Platt, Carrie Hope Fletcher and Aaron Tvett, along with old school legendary performers Barbara Streisand, Judy Garland and Gene Kelly.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

As we are relatively new, we haven’t performed anything high profile yet! However, in 2019, as professional actors, Kieran performed as legendary tennis player John McEnroe in ‘Rematch Live’ - a live theatre event in association with Wimbledon, and Emily originated the role of ‘Belle’ in the Scottish premier tour of new musical ‘The Wedding Planners’.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our standard line up is vocals with accompanying acoustic guitar & piano. Solo piano can be requested along with more upbeat sets with backing tracks.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We understand that timings can easily change - we will always try our best to be flexible and understanding. If timings change on the lead up to the event, just give us a message!

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely! We are happy to provide a playlist in between sets, free of charge.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up and sound check around one hour before the performance , or before guests arrive.

Can you roam around while you perform?

We are unable to roam during acoustic sets, however we are happy to do so when performing with backing tracks.

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

Absolutely - it is extremely important to us that we tailor our performance to suit your event.

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

Yes.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We are happy to learn any extra songs, however there is a small fee of £15 per song to cover rehearsal time.
