Hi Philip,

My partner and I saw your band perform at our friend's wedding back in September 2015 and decided to get in touch after seeing how much fun the guests had that evening.

We are currently looking for a Ceilidh band for our wedding which will be held....

Many thanks,

Hi Philip,

I was delighted with your band at my part on May 5th and wonder if you would be interested in another event?

I am organising a conference for my professional body ...

Best wishes,

Hello Philip,

Once again, thank you both for the wonderful music, it can make or break such events and you two certainly made it!

Thank you all again for yesterday's brilliant music, and especially to Joyce - without her tackling that awful drive, it would not have been possible...

We are holding our annual Burns night on Saturday January 20th in Bardsey village Hall and as yet we have no band! We generally have about 80 people eating and then dancing.

You recently played in our neighbouring village of East Keswick at their ceilidh which was a great success. Would you be available to play for us?

Hello Stray Chords,

I came to a ceilidh you did for St Aiden s in February and very much enjoyed it.

I was wondering if you were available to do a ceilidh for our PTA ...

Best wishes
