Our award-winning musicians will provide a night filled with a fantastic range of traditional & contemporary Scottish music as well as some classics that will have everyone singing along. The band most regularly performs as a 3 piece with accordion, fiddle and drums but can also provide a 2 or 4 piece line-up depending on your event requirements. The band includes a finalist in the BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2017 competition and with some of Scotland's top traditional musicians leading the band, we have a large network of musicians who we have performed with over time. From singers to pipers and everything in between, we are able to offer a customised line-up of the band if you have a specific instrumentation in mind.
Our experienced DJ will have your dancefloor filled with songs spanning several decades. We cater the night towards you, playing the music that you want to hear from our substantial music collection. Before the big night, send on a list of any particular songs you want played or let our DJ incorporate them with requests on the night.
