The music we play comes from the folk traditions of Ireland, Scotland, England and America.  We have songs and dance tunes, jigs, reels, hornpipes and polkas that we’ve collected from all over. The Pogues and The Dubliners meet Scottish dance bands and American Oldtime.

This set is great for listening, drinking and chat or for Ceilidh dancing which Yvette will lead and call. Have a glance at the Set Lists. You'll see lots of old favourites

 

For over twenty years now we have been playing all over the Midlands for parties, weddings and general merriment.

We have built up a great experience of what our audiences like. 

Our prices, which are very competitive, vary depending on  distance, date, line-up etc.  We are fully self-contained and our equipment, transport and insurances are kept in best condition.

Any further information you may require is just a phone call or an email away.
