Tweed in Bourbon are a high energy Folk, Covers, Ceilidh & Americana wedding & events band, based in Dorset.

We believe in crafting valuable, long-lasting memories. We're achieving this by challenging traditional misconceptions about Folk weddings & events - providing both ceilidhs and concerts filled with dancing, joy and celebration!

Our musical genres range from long-established Irish, Scottish and English folk music and ceilidh tune sets - to Americana classics, modern covers (Mumford & Sons, George Ezra, etc) - and even the occasional bit of Britpop! This is alongside unique covers, 'Live Lounge' style chart hits and sometimes our own unique take on folk.

We are one of the few folk bands that offer both ceilidh and concert options; uniquely enabling an exciting mix between the worlds of traditional and modern music. Contact us the learn more and explore availability.

Tweed in Bourbon are the recommended ceilidh band for many UK wedding venues including Larmer Tree Gardens in ...

We booked Tweed in Bourbon for our wedding on New Years Eve 2017. What an amazing group of musicians they are! The band were simply amazing; from their excellent communication leading up to the event to engaging brilliantly with the crowd on the night. All of our guests commented on how great the band were. We have many wonderful photos and videos of everyone jigging along to a very eclectic range of songs. Wonderful memories - that we will treasure forever!

  • How can event planners pay for your services?

  • How long do you play for?
    The standard is 2x 45 minute set. This however, is a hugely adjustable aspect, and will be customised to your needs.
  • Do you have your own PA and lighting?
    We have everything required to put on a great show - PA desk, speakers, lighting etc... Also, we'll work with the event location to ensure correct setup that works with the environment.
  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
    PAT tested and Public Liability Insurance
  • How much space do you require?
    We've performed in some small spaces before, but preferably need at least 10ft (width) and access to power.
  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
    Speak to us, give us notice and yes, theres a good chance we'll be able to learn your song.
  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
    In a standard 2x 45min set gig, we will only take a break of around 10-20min between the two sets. For other gigs, this will vary and be discussed prior to the event.
  • Do I need to pay a deposit?
    We ask for a non-refundable deposit, typically 10-20% of the total (dependant on distance) at the time of booking.
  • Can everyone dance in a Ceilidh?
    That is certainly our aim. Andy is an experienced caller (dance leader), and has run Ceilidhs for every age-range and demographic you could imagine. We have a wide selection of dances, so will always ‘read the room’ and adjust accordingly to get everyone involved.
  • What is a Ceilidh?
    Good question, you’ll probably know it better as a barn dance. Essentially a ‘caller' gets your guests up and dancing, explaining and guiding them through each dance. We, the band, then provide tunes to accompany this - normally starting slow and building up as people get to grips with the moves! It’s incredibly good fun and a perfect way to avoid ‘empty dancefloor’ scenarios, with everyone getting involved! You could even share your first dance as part of the Ceilidh.
