Biography - About us

Hiring a barn dance band is a great way to bring people together. They are a popular choice for wedding entertainment as there are two sides of a family that need to get to know each other. With everyone 'in the same boat' it quickly removes barriers.

This barn dance band are incredibly popular and have performed across the UK and Europe at both large and small events including weddings, parties, festivals and celebrations. Their traditional folk dance music is the highest quality and their caller will walk everyone though the dances first so don't worry if you've never tried it before. Their three piece line-up is the most popular option but can be slimmed down to a duo or expanded to a four piece if required (by adding a fiddle). Typically they would provide two sets of an hours music so they work very well with our 'Silver' disco option (ask about out combination rate). Watch the video and imagine your guests having this much fun!
