Celtic Strings

About us

As individuals & together Alison & Lindsay have many years of experience in playing for all sorts of functions & events.


At weddings they can play soothing harp & fiddle music for that truly Irish / Celtic sound.


They can also perform as wandering minstrels mingling with your guests while they relax between the ceremony & reception. They can change their instrumentation to include, whistle, flute, accordion, mandolin, guitar or bodhran.

If you need a band for your reception we can provide a 3-6 piece band.


The soothing sounds of harp & fiddle are also perfect for wakes & funerals.
