We are always happy to fit in with your existing timings - we usually find that two 'sets' of dancing each lasting between 45 and 90 minutes will work well for any event, so we would usually play anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours in total. We will work with you to make the right plan for your event. Unlike many bands on the circuit we only use a small pool of very talented musicians, and only commit to bookings where we can guarantee you'll have 'the A team.'

We are a really experienced ceilidh / barn dance band and have played for a great many different events in a wonderful variety of venues. We pride ourselves, not only on the high quality of our music, but with our flexibility. We don’t play from written music and can therefore really follow what is happening on the dance floor (we’ve been known to add a few extra bars so people can catch up). Our brilliant caller ensures everyone knows what to do with very clear instructions. We also play a great and varied mix of music between dance sets so there is never a dull moment. Our line up always includes our excellent caller plus melodeon (squeezebox), guitar & bass. We are often very lucky to have Wil join us on fiddle. He can’t always make it, but if he does, we don’t alter our charges. We’ll perform for (up to) 3 ½ hours (including breaks), and will arrive 45 minutes before the event to set up. We are certain that if you book us you’ll have a great time.

Recent review: """Mia and the Moon created a fantastic atmosphere at our 2017 New Year’s Eve event. They played different music accordingly, mimicking the reaction of the crowd, meaning everyone was up and dancing all night, just as we had hoped for. The band went above and beyond our expectations; during a meeting with Laura I happened to mention a few of our pre-booked guests had a real love for ABBA, to which Laura told me they didn’t cover ABBA but were willing to learn some just for us, and sure enough they did, and it was fabulous. The band also left us one of their CD’s with their original songs on them which we have played since in the pub and have had many people ask about the music. Over all, we were super grateful and impressed with Mia and the Moon, they created an amazing atmosphere that we couldn’t have achieved without them and made this New Year’s one of the Hotels most successful yet. We have had numerous customers thank us for such a great evening and a huge part of that was down to be band being as wonderful as they were. I would recommend Mia and the Moon to anyone looking for a unique cover band with an amazing style or for their even own music which is also fantastic, to create a great party atmosphere."""

Recent review: "The Tartan Trio played at our wedding in August 2018 and were absolutely exceptional. I had so many people say to me on the night and afterwards how brilliant they were. We requested to start with everyone together, rather than a traditional first dance, and they made it work perfectly. The caller was fantastic and so engaged with the audience - even getting off stage to demonstrate. It was 32 degrees during the day but people still wanted to keep dancing - at other ceilidhs I've been to guests have given up and not danced much. We provided a playlist for after and they put it together so everything flowed nicely and honestly we just had the best time! I highly highly recommend them (and have literally been telling newly engaged strangers to look them up!) Note: not the individuals in the photo and their email communication could be better. But the end result is worth it!"
