Overview
Price from: £450
*£450 represents booking Tweed in Bourbon's core lineup (Matt | Andy | Claire) for 2x 45 minute sets, inclusive of all setup/pack down time & including travel up-to 50 miles from Bournemouth, not including any additional extras (requested songs, disco, unique requirements etc...) Other options include: Extended set - Need us to play longer? We custom price this depending on your requirements, but this will be discounted compared to the first 2x 45 minutes. Ceremony Music - Do you really love the idea of walking down the aisle with a beautiful fiddle playing, or signing the register whilst a favourite song is played? This is something we love getting involved with, but again will be custom priced depending on your preferences, so just let us know all your ideas! Daytime / Dinner Entertainment - As above, if you want us to create a happy atmosphere whilst your guests wine & dine we custom price this based on requirements. Ceilidh / Barn Dance - Most Ceilidh/Barn Dances will start from £595, given the need to include a caller. Requested Songs - Levels of complexity will effect costing, however on most occasions we'll offer one request free and then additional song from £15. Disco : Use of PA & Speakers - We offer the option to hire our PA & Speakers before & after we've performed for your own playlists, and will remain to manage sound levels/pack down. If wanted, we can even create playlists based on your preferences. We normally price this from £50/hr.

FAQ
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.
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.

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.
