The Brothers Folk Quintet

Folk Quintet in London

The Brothers Folk Quintet are an acoustic band with a difference.

Combining two guitars, percussion, double bass & saxophone, they offer a fresh delivery of live music through their arrangements of classic songs and modern hits with a warm feel good ‘Mumford & Sons’ style throughout each performance.

Originally gigging as a duo, the musicians expanded by teaming up with their professional percussionist, double bassist & saxophonist to create the full band and haven’t looked back since.

Brothers Folk’s musicians have performed in countless function bands on stages worldwide, plus TV appearances, tours, and session work for major music label artists.

After countless gigs within different bands, the lads decided to collate their musical skills and experience, and form one solid line-up to deliver powerful sets at every performance.

From their wealth of experience, Brother Folk know what songs work best live and which numbers will bring your guests to the dance floor or get them singing if they are performing their roaming sets.

What’s more, by carefully constructing setlists with numbers from different decades, we make sure that guests of all ages enjoy the performance.

The Walkaround / roaming option
The band loves this style of performance. They will walk to different tables or groups of guests and play numerous mini sets for your different guests to enjoy.

The band can tailor the songs we play for each specific group we perform to; and make sure everybody gets a personal performance of songs they will love to singalong to.

This is the perfect choice if you want to show your guests a performance with a twist and it works well for any feel good event be it a wedding, party, corporate event or otherwise both indoors and outdoors. Also available with saxophone in this option.

Adaptability for all events
Whether you’re planning a wedding, private party or corporate meeting, The Brothers Folk Quintet can provide the perfect soundtrack to your event, bring people to the dance floor and create a warm feel good vibe for your guests.

Brothers Folk perform at all sorts of events and can play and dress accordingly. With up to five instruments playing together, its very easy for the band to play a more relaxed set or a more lively one, so no matter whether you’re hosting a black tie dinner or an informal birthday party, you can be confident that the band will look sound and look the part for your event.

Acoustic Duo Set Available
Thinking of also hiring an acoustic duo at your event to get things started? The band members all began their gigging careers as duos so this is very comfortable territory for them and they always deliver another top-class performance.

Song choice
The Brothers Folk Quintet draw on their experience to know which songs work best live for different events. The band uses their experience to create a slightly organic setlist so that if your guests will continue to have a memorable night.

  1. Hey guys.

    I’m looking for a roaming band to take care of our guests during our drinks reception on Friday 18th May- Burnham beeches hotel.

    Will be from 14:00-16:00. Are weddings laid back but we will have some garden games and hopefully with an addition of a roaming band it will add a really nice touch to the day where people can sing along and enjoy

    Please could I have a quote for a trio then a four piece please. Are budget is very tight as most people’s during a wedding. Hence I’m hoping prices may be a little cheaper for a day performance and with 3 instead of all .

    Many thanks
    Aimee
