What people say about the UK Folk Bands:

Please pass a huge thanks to the duo of the Live Lounge that performed at my wife’s 40th birthday surprise party. The venue was The Walnut Tree in Yalding on the 21st February. Both of them were amazing and we all had a great time over there. The party was a huge success and a huge credit goes to them.
