2 Piece band & Caller

Our two piece and caller package would be perfect for your event. The instruments would be fiddle and guitar, with our lovely caller on hand to talk everyone through each dance before the band start playing. We would also bring our own PA, which you can use for background music or even your first dance as a married couple. For this we charge a flat rate of £790.00, which includes all expenses and travel. We’ve been playing at events like this for years, and have plenty of suggestions and ideas which I’m happy to share with you. If you’d like to chat about these or if you have any questions of your own, do feel free to message me. Thanks for getting in touch, and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Fred Holden Bowreed
