We also do an Irish Céilidh show with Irish Dancers who will get an audience up dancing. Based in West Wales near Carmarthen we are always happy to travel anywhere in the UK and Europe for concerts. Anywhere else in the world please mail for details.

Parlour Parties

Parlour Parties are not new and are popular in America and Ireland. If you have a room big enough and fancy an Irish Band Playing live Irish Music for a party or barbeque then give us a call. We do a lot of private parties for small groups. We do both indoor and outdoor events.
