The Sassenachs played at our wedding - they were amazing! Laurie is a top guy who controls the room superbly and caters for all standards. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

I was lucky enough to see Laurie and his band do a ceilidh for a wedding I organised recently and my goodness was it good. They had everyone up and enjoying themselves, great fun and so lovely and easy to deal with!

Thank you so much for helping make the evening an absolutely roaring success! Everyone was so complimentary about the band and we, as I’m sure you could tell, loved every minute of it. We will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a ceilidh band!

The Sassenachs were absolutely amazing. Such awesome energy. So much fun. Laurie was immensely supportive throughout our wedding prep and on the day. Could not recommend more highly!
