About this Act

Celtic Clan is the Irish band that doesn't just do Irish! They're perfect for everything from weddings through to corporates, garden parties and more - anywhere you need an atmospheric blend of music designed to get people mingling, dancing and having fun.

Of course, they've the capability to do full Irish nights (they played Cheltenham Races on St Patrick's day), but for mixed party nights too, they're perfect, as their blend of music mixes everything from jigs and reels through to Irish/Celtic pop (like Dexy's Midnight Runners (Come on Eileen)' The Proclaimers (500 Miles), The Corrs' So Young; Fairytale of New York etc), plus current and vintage pop (Daydream Believer through to Adele), and even a spot of Ceilidh with a caller! The band is hugely popular, and has cornered the market in mixed Irish/English weddings, as well as the above-mentioned functions.

Testimonials

September 2012

Hi Guys, I recently attended the wedding of Laura Gee and Charles Kinsell in which you performed at. I just wanted to say well done and congratulations. The music was awesome and the reception a great success. I normally wouldn't dance, but the music dragged me to the floor. Consider me a new fan!"

Dev Joshi

Moor Hall Hotel, Four Oaks

"A quick and very belated message to say a huge thank you to you and the band for your fantastic set at our wedding back in May. We received so many compliments about the band, both on the night and for many days afterwards. You were definitely the hit of the night! And thanks also for making it even more special by letting me sing a song with you. Ben was absolutely blown away, and very touched. And apparently I had a whole load of the guests welling up, which I thought was brilliant!"

"Now we've sobered up we wanted to send you a huge thank you for the fantastic soundtrack to our wedding. As a last-minute booking, only the male/female duo was available and to be honest, we had our doubts that you could entertain a big wedding crowd but OMG - you so did! It was an awesome day topped off by you guys. And busking Erasure's 'Give A Little Respect' was the highligh - brilliantly played and the whole crowd singing along - what a memory! An awesome day topped off by you guys :-)"

"I had to write and tell you the band went down a storm with everyone at Tony's 50th - you were brilliant and they all loved you! Thank you so much for all the thought that went into your show. You were thinking about things that never occurred to me, and every suggestion you made contributed to making the evening flow fantastically. You're very professional indeed, and I'll be recommending you to everyone I can. Thank you once again for making the night - I can't praise you enough and I hope I get the chance to book you for something again in the future. Loraine x
