Behan's footsteps are a pair of brothers based in west Yorkshire who specialise in Celtic folk music. They generally work as a Violin and Accordion Duo but with one (or both!) of them also able to swap to guitar and vocals in order to sing ballads.
Both brothers are classically, conservatoire trained musicians who also grew up around Folk, watching their mum play the Violin in an Irish band and a Ceilidh band, and listening to The Pogues on repeat from a very young age.
Behan's Footsteps pride themselves on professionalism and excellence, but also on an avoidance of stuffiness, keeping each performance fresh and engaging.

Behan’s Footsteps came to play at my husband’s 60th birthday party, they were absolutely fantastic and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing good music at their event. They responded very quickly to my queries and requests and were an absolute pleasure to deal with, we would hire them again if we have another ‘do’

  • What are the highlights of your career?

    Performing at the opening ceremony of the water Olympics Performing at the Royal Albert hall Being featured in a BBC documentary

  • What is your competitive advantage (special features)?

    In addition to coming from folk backgrounds and being surrounded by Irish music from a young age, both brothers are conservatoire trained.

    Weddings, Parties, festivals, funerals, wakes, Birthdays

  • Who are your previous clients?

  • How can event planners pay for your services?

    Usually Bank transfer is fine but we are happy to negotiate according to the clients needs

  • How long do you play for?

    We are happy to play for as long as the client needs. Often this will be around 2 x 45 minute sets but this can vary so we can be flexible with timings.

  • Do you have your own PA and lighting?


  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?


  • How much space do you require?

    Very Little. We can play acoustically if necessary meaning we will take up very little space. Even with a Pa we do not need much as a duo.

  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?

    This should be fine as long as you let us know in advance. We may already know it anyway as this list by no means covers all of our repertoire!

  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?

    We will usually take a break at least once every hour for around 15 minutes
