“Price Of My Pig (a great name for a band) come from the North West England in the UK… a high octane folk/funk dance band who like to bring a little more life and energy to your average ceilidh, by introducing rhythms from disco, reggae, funk, afrobeat, ska into their mix of Irish, English and European folk tunes.” Folk Roots Radio

The ‘POMP’ Ceilidh Band, with their driving beats and memorable melodies, are well received at weddings, corporate and private events as well as festivals, both with and without a dance caller. Energetic, exciting and exhilarating.

Price of my pig played at my wedding and were absolutely incredible. The whole band were so much fun and got the whole wedding party involved. The band was excellent and evening DJ was perfect. Ben always got back to me very quickly and was so accommodating to all of our requests. Cannot recommend enough!

I booked Ben Farmer and his crew for my 50th birthday party on Friday 21st September and wow what an amazing night.

The atmosphere the music and dancing was creating by Ben and everyone at my party all have said they had a fantastic night and what a fabulous band.

I can’t thank Ben enough for making my birthday such a wonderful party

Thankyou Ben Farmer"

"These guys were just fab as entertainment for our wedding day. When you have a mix of young, old and young at heart, it’s so hard to please everyone, but please everyone they did. With their infectious beats, comedic interludes and toe tapping tunes, Ben and co brought energy, fun and laughter to the dance-floor.
