We're a great fun band playing Irish and Scottish music with amusing little stories to compliment the tunes. A night with us will have you smiling and dancing and singing along. Think of The Dubliners and you'll be close to our sound and music. We play weddings, parties, wakes, festivals and ceilidh events as well as your local pub. Featuring fiddle, banjo, guitar and bodhran we all sing. We can arrange a caller for a Ceilidh if needed. Songs include Whiskey in the Jar, Wild Rover, Dirty Old Town, The Black Velvet Band and The Seven Drunken Nights among many others. In addition we add songs from Scotland and the USA if you would like a wider mix, including songs by Johnny Cash and Andy Stewart. Jigs reels and hornpipes include King of the Faries, the Masons Apron, Drowsy Maggie, Marie's Wedding and Scotland the Brave. We have two albums out at the moment, both available on I tunes and Spotify, and we have played widely across the west count...
A lively folk/gypsy/ceilidh band with tunes from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, America and England.
We are available for performing concerts, barn dances (or ceilidhs) at pubs, festivals, weddings, birthdays, BBQ's or any other party!
We perform a range of music (both songs and tunes) from a broad repertoire and era from traditional folk to 70's and 80's rock!
We can cater for Scottish 'flavoured' Ceilidhs, although for most Barn Dance/ Ceilidhs we would keep it mixed to allow dancers of all experience levels to enjoy themselves.
Our aim is to 'entertain, not educate', it should be fun after all!

This trio of likeminded musicians formed in early 2017, and have already made their mark with their upcoming group. Coming from projects of their own (TEYR, Crossharbour, Céilí Max), Tad Sargent (GUITAR, BOUZOUKI, BODHRAN, VOCALS), James Gavin (FIDDLE, GUITAR) and Dominic Henderson (UILLEANN PIPES, WHISTLES, VOCALS) blend their intrigue with new sounds with the old styles of the music they grew up with.
Born in London, Tad, James and Dominic having grown up playing on the session circuit as accomplished musicians in their own right, and also having taught extensively in their fields, now turn their heads towards hitting stages at events around the country with a new, exciting, and vibrant sound.
Their music has been described as "Ear Candy For The Gods" by Bill Barclay (Director Music at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and Guardian Columnist).
Between them, the lads have played at venues ranging from the Royal Albert Hall, The Union Chap...

40th birthday party in March 2017 held at Windsor court kelly bray callington. 65/70 guests and would like a band to play as I'm
Holding it in a barn. Have just been let down and now need to find a really good
Band to make my day.
The wedding ceremony is taking place at St Budock church at 1100, with the reception after at Penmorvah Manor Hotel.
Subject to agreement (and space) being available at the reception, the photo booth would be ideally required to be operational from c.1900-2200 as we will be having additional evening guests.
I am contacting you on behalf of Animal Farm Adventure Park.
We are holding a Kid Fest on 8th and 9th April 2017. We want to make this years even bigger and better! We have come across you guys and think you would make a great addition to our event! Please could you give me some details of what you have to offer, whether or not you are available for that weekend, and what prices we would be looking at?
We are renting a large house in Frome for a stag do. I would like to run a short Bavarian evening before we head out into Bath. It will start at around 5 and last 2 hours or so. We may not need a full band maybe a couple of guys to add a bit of background.
Hey Javier just want to say a big thank you for the amazing performance at our wedding on Sunday. Each and everyone we spoke to had no words to express how great it was, how much they loved the music and you guys. Thank you for your flexibility with the set. I know we made you change the timings to suit our plans, but it worked amazingly well, and we are so thankful for it.
Many thanks to Steve for providing the entertainment for my birthday party. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all. It was a small party for about 40, which included kids.
Steve arrived on time, set up and pretty much set the pace for the party. He was funny and very entertaining. Plenty of audience participation. I would 100% recommend him again. A great singer and musician. We had a great time thanks to Steve Roxton.
Blag were really exactly what we were looking for! I don't live in London so I was nervous about choosing a band I hadn't heard play, but they sounded great online, and I spoke to Michael over the phone and on email about the type of party we were having and the music we wanted. Most importantly they played brilliantly on the night, everyone was up out their seats for a good knees up and we were guided round the dances that we didn't know. All the guests were happy.
Would definitely recommend!
