About this Act

Tweed in Bourbon are an upbeat British folk band based on the UK's south coast, performing across the country. The core band consists of Claire on Fiddle, Matt on guitar, cajon drum and vocals, and Andrew on accordion, mandolin and vocals. Their style is an eclectic collection of modern and traditional folk - ranging from beautiful Irish, Scottish & English instrumentals and songs, to more current folk tracks from bands like Mumford & Sons, 'live lounge' style covers, recognised TV themes and even some Americana classics.

They aim to provide a highly flexible service to clients and have a varied setlist and are always happy to learn new requests, no matter how unusual. They also work with a handpicked selection of deputy musicians for larger gigs as required, as well as a list of preferred ceilidh/barn dance callers to keep your guests right on the dance floor. Essentially they can flexibly provide virtually any folk/ceilidh/barn dance type event you could ever need - all with tremendous care for attention and sound quality.

Beyond just the music and dancing, Tweed in Bourbon make bookings and events as stress-free as possible. They come with all required insurances and equipment testing, will communicate with the venue prior to the event and have all stage equipment required to put on a great show! If required they can even offer DJ services before & after performing.

So expect foot tapping, partner swinging, guests smiling folk music from Tweed in Bourbon, that will help make a memorable day just that pinch more special!
