Folk Bands FAQs

Obviously, a band performing the big hits by Mumford and Sons and bands like The Lumineers, Noah and the Whale, George Ezra, indie rock and pop songs, and those classic pop hits from previous decades.

All folk bands and folk wedding bands will have Public Liability Insurance (PLI) certificates and a portable appliance tested (PAT) certification. Some venues will ask for these certificates before any band can perform there.

The set-up time for a band is around 60-90 minutes which includes unloading equipment, setting up, and a soundcheck. The standard set times for a folk band will either be 2 x 45 mins or 2 x 60 with a short break in between sets. You will also have the option of 3 x 40 mins sets which can be split acoustically and electric for a Mumford style band.

All Mumford folk bands will come self-contained with a PA and additional lighting for the performance area if the venue does not already have any in place. Some bands will also provide a free DJ service in between sets played through their PA system to keep the party atmosphere going throughout the wedding or function.

For example, a three-piece folk band would need around 3m x 3m. This increases by an additional meter for every musician. For example, a four-piece band would need around 4m x 3m and so on. This space is required for their PA, drums, amps, and any stage lighting they may supply. So always check the venue before booking any band and make sure 13 amp sockets are available.

A standard 4 piece Mumford & Sons style function band would be male vocals or female vocals, lead guitar, rhythm guitar, drums, and double bass, and a banjo will replace a guitar for some pop tunes.
If you were to hire a jazz band or a modern rock-pop covers band for your wedding, they would have different instrumentation compared to acoustic Mumford style wedding music.

​You absolutely can! Every one of the pages for our folk bands for hire (and all our bands like soul and funk, and indie bands, for that matter) you can watch videos of them performing their songs, so you can not only listen, you can see them performing too. We believe that you can’t choose a group with confidence unless you see them performing, so make sure to give those videos a watch, especially if you’re booking folk bands for weddings – it’s important to get the perfect vibe and great live music for the big day from your musicians!

A supply of refreshments for the musicians and a buffet-style meal would be very much appreciated especially if it is a long day, and they are likely to be there for the afternoon and into the evening. Make sure to reserve some parking spaces as close to the venue as possible to save time with unloading their equipment. If you are holding an event or a wedding outdoors, your band will need some cover if it is not held in a marque, like a gazebo, and will need an electrical supply.

Always check to see if the venue has a sound limiter fitted as this may limit the band you can hire.

If, you are planning a festival wedding make sure you book your folk style wedding bands early to avoid any disappointment especially in the peak wedding season of May-September. Prices will vary depending on the size of the band and the distance they need to travel, and in some cases, accommodation may be required, if it is likely to be a late finish.

Yes, we think it is a good idea to speak to a member of the wedding band beforehand to go through any minor details and songs you may like, and songs you do not want to be played.

Discovering the Richness of Folk Music: Different Styles of Folk Bands

Folk music has a rich history and a wide range of styles, from traditional to modern. Whether you’re a fan of acoustic ballads or foot-stomping anthems, there’s a folk band out there for you. In this guide, we’ll explore the different styles of folk bands and what makes each one unique.

Traditional Folk Bands.

Traditional folk bands are rooted in the history and culture of a particular region or country. They often use traditional instruments such as the fiddle, banjo, and mandolin, and their music is passed down through generations. Examples of traditional folk bands include The Chieftains from Ireland and The Carter Family from the United States. These bands often perform songs that tell stories of their culture and history, and their music is deeply connected to their roots.

Celtic Folk Bands.

Celtic folk bands are a subgenre of traditional folk music that originated in Ireland, Scotland, and other Celtic regions. They often use traditional instruments such as the bodhrán, tin whistle, and uilleann pipes, and their music is characterized by its lively rhythms and haunting melodies. Examples of Celtic folk bands include The Dubliners and The Corrs from Ireland, and Runrig from Scotland. Their music often tells stories of Celtic mythology and history, and their performances are often accompanied by traditional Irish or Scottish dancing.

Bluegrass Bands.

Bluegrass bands are a type of folk band that originated in the Appalachian region of the United States. They typically feature acoustic instruments such as the banjo, mandolin, and fiddle, and their music is characterized by its fast-paced, intricate picking and harmonies. Some well-known bluegrass bands include The Stanley Brothers, Bill Monroe and His Blue Grass Boys, and Alison Krauss and Union Station. Bluegrass music often tells stories of rural life and the struggles of working-class Americans.

Americana Bands.

Americana bands are a type of folk band that draws inspiration from various American roots music genres, including country, blues, and rock. They often incorporate a mix of acoustic and electric instruments, and their music can range from upbeat and energetic to introspective and melancholic. Some popular Americana bands include The Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, and The Lumineers. Americana music often explores themes of love, loss, and the complexities of modern American life.

Indie Folk Bands.

Indie folk bands are a subgenre of folk music that emerged in the 21st century. They often feature stripped-down instrumentation, with acoustic guitars, banjos, and mandolins being common. Indie folk bands often have a DIY ethos, with many self-producing and self-releasing their music. Their music often explores introspective themes and ranges from hauntingly beautiful to upbeat and catchy.
