Celtic music has exploded into mainstream culture in the past twenty years
with artists such as Great Big Sea, Spirit of the West, The Chieftains, Natalie MacMaster, and the Afro-Celt Sound System to name but a few. The Wandering Minstrels can bring all of these different styles of Celtic music to your event, from traditional jigs and reels to a mix of pub standards and contemporary hits. With hardy singing, fiddles, tin whistles, bagpipes and bodhráns and the added option of group dancing, we can transform your wedding or event into a virtual Riverdance or a rollicking kitchen party.
We take our time with each prospective client to help you decide on style, instrumentation, budget and number of musicians.
A unique option we offer is group-dancing which can be taught to your guests in minutes. It can be just the thing to break the ice in a mixed crowd at weddings or to promote team-building among work colleagues. Be sure to check out the DANCING link for more about this rare and exciting option for your wedding or event.
