Paddy’s Whiskers at River Cottage!

Paddy's Whiskers at River Cottage

Last weekend we were lucky enough to play at River Cottage HQ, Axmimster, Devon for Richard and Amy’s wedding celebration.

Jules and Andrew were invited to play some acoustic music for the wedding ceremony – which was held outdoors. Luckily the rain held off and the sun shone….we played some mellow jigs (Haste to The Wedding!) as the crowd assembled. Then in the middle of the ceremony Andrew played acoustic guitar to back Karen (a friend of the bride and groom) singing the lovely traditional folk song “Sweet Nightingale”…At the end of the ceremony we played (and sang) the Townes Van Zandt song “If I Needed You”, which we had learned especially for the day. What a great song…look out for it at our gigs soon.

Then we got to eat(!) (River Cottage food…amazing!!).

In the evening, together with Marcus and our caller Gil, we played a rip roaring barn dance to get all the guests up and grooving. A great day (and night!).

“Thank you so much…..”

Wedding Ceilidh at Lapford, Devon

Lovely feedback from Maddy and Joe. We played a barn dance for them at Pyworthy in Devon in the middle of August. Paddy’s Whiskers provided acoustic music to accompany their marriage ceremony, then a ceilidh and a rocking disco at the end….what a great crowd!

Here’s what they had to say:

“Thank you so much for all of your hard work at our wedding. Your music really helped to make the day special. Thanks again. Everybody loved the ceilidh.”

“Paddy’s Whiskers are seriously the best band I have ever seen perform at a wedding!”

We played a barn dance for Elizabeth and Dominic’s wedding celebration at Lapford last weekend. A couple of hours of ceilidh dancing, songs and tunes were followed by a disco with Andrew from the Whiskers DJing.

We got some lovely feedback from the photographer:

“Paddy’s Whiskers are seriously the best band I have ever seen perform at a wedding!”

Kind words from Natalie Hilditch at Hilditch and Bear Photography.
