The man, the myth, the legend: James Kerry

This isn’t just a random: It’s a picture of James. See how he can multi-task as a sound engineer and photo model whilst taking a phone call? That’s pretty good, right?

“Nice guy. Really made my event perfect! 100% recommend!”

But don’t let the location fool you; we supply live acts for pubs, weddings or functions nationally.

If you’re simply looking to book a ceilidh band (or two) for your wedding, party or corporate function, then James Kerry Music provides a number of line-up options. Do you need to hire a Personal Address (PA) system or lighting, staging and dance floors? We do that too! We’ll even provide a marquee to host your barn dance in, as well as a disco for the evening session or wedding reception if you like. So really, we’ve got you covered. All you need to do is make sure the guests show up to dance!

If you’d like an extra something special at your festival, or an interesting activity to add to your classroom curriculum, we also offer traditional music workshops.
