"Great job, thanks! Good selection of traditional songs (which was probably somewhat wasted on the audience). Loved the lights which were unexpected and very much appreciated the music at the end and letting us jump on the mic for a bit of dancing. Would definitely recommend!
Thanks Katie."

Excellent. Danny and the band were very entertaining and accommodating. They even stayed on for an extra 1.5 hours to entertain the guests. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking for an Irish/folk band for an event. Thank you very much.

Duchas Anam were excellent entertainment. Very friendly band who were willing to have ago at whatever we requested! Well worth employing for a fun night of live music.

Duchas Anam were great value for money. We had them at LSE for a St. Patrick's Day party for Irish and non-Irish students and they were very well received. Band members were lively and play a variety of instruments. Stayed even after they were finished to allow us to use the sound syatem for additional songs. If you are familar with Irish music or not, they are a great choice!
