In these difficult times when we’re sadly not able to play for your beautiful weddings and events, we’ve been trying to think of alternative ideas… so we’d like to introduce you to our new Celtic Music Message Videos!

A unique gift for a birthday, anniversary or special occasion! Have Philippe and Ali Barnes, celtic Fiddle and Guitar Duo learn and perform one of your favourite Scottish or Irish tunes, a traditional waltz or celtic piece of music for just +£50. Or for +£75 we can arrange an instrumental version of a modern/pop song for you.

This can also be a really lovely surprise for your other half or way to celebrate your original 2020 Wedding date – why not have us perform a duo version of your chosen first dance song or just one of our ceilidh pieces for you to have a jig about in your kitchen to!

With a quick turn-around, each video is unique and personalised, recorded especially for you and your loved one. We record a short hello and message at the start of each one – just let us know if there is something special you’d like us to say!

Then for music choices, if you’d like some top suggestions for popular options:

Slow pieces:
Ashokan Farewell, Hector the Hero, Skye Boat Song (theme for Outlander), Sí Bheag Sí Mhor, Inisheer, Josephine’s Waltz…

Popular Jigs & Reels:
John Ryan’s Polka, Blarney Pilgrim (both from titanic below deck scenes), The Kesh Jig, Out on the Ocean, Cooleys, Silver Spear, Toss the Feather (like the Corrs!)…

Instrumental versions of traditional / folk songs:
Annie’s Song, Spancil Hill, Fields of Athenry, Wagon Wheel…

Instrumental versions of modern / pop songs:
Perfect (Ed Sheeran), Can’t Help Falling in Love with You (Elvis Presley), A Thousand Years (Christina Perri), Somewhere Over The Rainbow, How Long Will I Love You (Ellie Goulding).

Or just ask for a request…
