Line Ups

Traditional Line Up

Our standard four piece line up consists of Fiddle, Accordion, Guitar and Caller.  Suitable for events of any size the driving melodies will get everyone up and dancing.

Extended Line Up

You can add drums and bass to make our extended six piece line up for a ‘rockier’ sound. Suitable for larger events of 80 people or more. The rhythm section allows more variance in the tone of the evening.

Past Clients


A HUGE thank you to the members of the Shipsters who played at my party on Saturday night in Vauxhall. They were fantastic, Dan was reassuringly there well in advance and was so amenable. They were super quick and efficient about setting up and taking down. Everyone thought they were fantastic and I have passed on your details to several people who expressed an interest in booking them for future events.

Just wanted to pass on another massive thank you for what was an absolutely epic ceilidh last night! Loved it and you guys were awesome. Cheers for your flexibility and helping things run smoothly.

We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you all for playing at our wedding last weekend. I'm sorry we didn't get the chance to chat to you more or thank you on the day. We had so much fun during the ceilidh and so many of our guests have commented on how much they enjoyed it. It was perfectly pitched and we're really glad you got so many people involved. 

We also wanted to thank you for allowing us to use your PA system so late into the night, which meant we could carry on the fun!

Just wanted to say thank you again for your fantastic performance at our wedding!
We had so much fun and so many people mentioned how great you were!!
Everyone loved you, I think the heat just dampened their enthusiasm ever so slightly!
I was feeling much too emotional to sing on the day but thank you for offering your PA and for playing our first dance!
Thanks again, have recommended you already to lots of people!
