They boast male and female vocals and have over three hours worth of music in their arsenal that covers acts of such diversity as Eddie Cochran through the Beatles up to the likes of Fleetwood Mac and the Kings of Leon. They are at home performing as either a 5 or 6 piece band, both with ceilidh options and floor filling is their speciality.

Here’s a list of our current set list mixed with songs that are in our repertoire. When looking through it we urge you to remember two things…

  • We play these song using the instrumentation that is available to us. So all the songs are arranged for x2 guitars, a bass guitar, drums, male and female vocal, plus if you choose to book them a Tenor Saxophone/Flue/Whistles or fiddle (or both) Also we may play a song in a completely different style to he original recording as we believe it to make the song better to dance to, or we just fancy being creative with them.
  • We guarantee that our enthusiasm, energy and musicality will shine through and that if you and your guests are music fans then you will enjoy our interpretation of what we believe to be some of the best songs of all time. We love what we do and we love these songs – trust us!

Here’s a great wee film from last weeks gig....

Gryffe Weddings
Its not every day you see a pair of Chinese dragons dancing around on a Scottish farm!! That's one of the things that made Alex & Bella's wedding day at Harelaw Farm Weddings so unique and amazing!!

Check out this wee teaser film from their wedding last weekend.

Full credit has to go to Marc from one big picture photography, for finding the pretty little bridge we used for the couple shoot. 🙂

And as always, the wedding went perfectly, due to some seriously amazing wedding suppliers:

Chinese Dragons - @歐洲洪佛總會 Hung Fut Scotland
Flowers - Floral Menagerie
Cake/dessert table - Three Sisters Bake
Kilts - MacGregor MacDuff
Dress - Eleganza Sposa
Band - The Honey Moons
Bridesmaid dresses - ASOS

Make up - Esther Brown Makeup
Harpist - Sarah MacNeil Harpist
Piper - Rory Cameron - Piper
Stationary - @EY I LOVE
Light up letters - Go2 Eventhire/i Love Letters
Photo booth - The Bygone Photobooth Company

And biggest thanks to George & Donna at the farm, and Tracey from Sarah's Creative Occasions for looking after us so much on the day! What a treat it always is to work at Harelaw!! 🙂

Another lovely review.....

‘Thank you for playing for Fran and I’s big day last weekend. We were looking for a band that wasn’t your typical cheesy wedding band and you guys certainly weren’t that. All the covers were brilliant aswell as the ceilidh dancing. The mix of singers and saxophone made for an awesome sound and kept everyone dancing. Also very grateful for letting our wee band play a couple of tunes before letting the pros back to it.

Would have no hesitation in recommending you guys for a wedding and hope to see you at another one soon

Thanks again’
