Description

Price from: £700

Folk quartet Trouble at t'Mill have been playing private and public gigs since the band's formation in August 2015. The band is fully-equipped with a 1000W PA rig - plenty loud enough to fill a medium-large venue.

"We have an extensive catalogue of music, fit for any occasion or venue, ranging from rousing drinking songs, reels and jigs to slow airs and melancholy folk songs. Our arrangements are fun and fluid and filled with energy and we are available to provide live music for corporate and private functions, pubs, bars, restaurants and festivals.."
