Thanks for a wonderful evening at Phoenix Ceilidh. We had so much positive feedback from our regular ceilidh goers who had not come across you before that you will be at the top of the list when we are booking bands for next year. Hopefully we will see you at some of the larger festivals soon.

Thanks very much to ‘Price of my Pig’ for playing at the EAUC Conference event at Lancaster University last week. The Ceilidh was excellent and the feedback from delegates was that they thoroughly enjoyed your performance. Many thanks indeed for helping to make a really good evening.

Absolutely. Our front man, Ben Farmer is an experienced and entertaining caller who will tailor the nights dances to the abilities of the dancers. Suitable for 5 to 85 (although we've had some 90+ year olds dancing to us too...)
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
We normally play two sets. Our sets normally last between 50 and 75 minutes. We require a 20minute break half-way through.
What kind of events do you usually serve?
We usually play for private parties, weddings and community events.
Who are your previous clients?
Outside of the festivals, we mostly play for private clients for weddings, concerts, events and conferences e.g. Lancaster University, Preston Harris Museum, Deco Publique, Mid Pennine Arts, Penrith Winter Droving, More Music and more...

“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
