Overview
Price from: £650
Blag's standard entertainment package will cover your whole evening and includes: Professional 3-piece band with male lead vocals and a fiddle player who can teach barn dances. 2 x 60 minute live sets. Great set list covering an extensive eclectic mix of folk music from Celtic Jigs to Irish Folk Rock and many other songs from around the world. A superb Mackie PA system which can also be used to play your own music before and between sets. A Lighting System. Public Liability insurance and PAT certificates. We can also play a 60-minute live lounge acoustic set for drinks reception or during dinner or relaxing jazz, latin and flamenco music either as a two or three piece.

Please note that the client will normally have to provide two parking spaces and cover congestion charge if applicable in central London.
