  • Testimonials:

    "A huge thanks to you both for everything you did at the museum on Saturday, which was fantastic. We had some very happy visitors to our afternoon tea who really enjoyed the music and it really made the museum come alive" - Rosie Barker, Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery

    "Dom and Ruth provide all the classics like Irish Rover, Fields of Athenry, Galway Girl, Wild Rover etc – they soon had the room rocking. And it was a bonus that they were able to pull other material out of the bag when needed. Ultimately, they appealed to the Irish and non-Irish which was fantastic. And when the entire room was on the tables for Daydream Believer, I could have cried (in a good way). Thank you so much both" - Rita Syner, Birmingham

    "My husband’s party was a huge hit thanks to this fantastic act. We weren’t sure what to expect, but they kept everyone entertained, pacing the music to suit the atmosphere. They kept it quiet and suitable for background during dinner and then ramped it up to pack out the dance floor for the second half. I have to mention the beautiful harmonies too – what a find!" - Sarah Patterson, Worcestershire

    "Ruth and Dom strike that balance between friendly and professional. It’s obvious they’ve put a lot of time into getting the setlist right, and keeping the audience happy. The dance floor was full of happy people all night, and we raised over £1,000 for charity" - Ellen Simpson, Cheshire

    "What beautiful music. We almost couldn’t solve the murder mystery, as your playing in the breaks was so (wonderfully) distracting. Next time we’ll forget whodunit and just have the music instead!" - Ted and Thelma Woolerton, Little Aston

    "It’s rare to find an act that can do so much. Fiddle,  guitar, whistle. Singing in harmony. One of them leading on a song,  and then the other taking the lead. Versatile really is the best way to describe these two. We absolutely loved what they did, and it made dad’s 70th a very special night. Thank you both" - Aine McRory, Liverpool
