What a brilliant band! Everyone was up dancing, and when there was no room left on the floor, people danced by their tables. A great mix of authentic Irish and modern music was just what we needed - exactly what I had in mind when I booked you. A brilliant performance that made everyone comment on a great night. Thank you!Adam Cornes (Charity function - Stoke on Trent)
Really great! You got in touch regularly, and were really helpful with suggestions as to how to make the evening flow. You were everything I hoped for, and more. Fantastic!Des Maguire (40th - Liverpool)
I just wanted to write and say how great Celtic Clan were at my mum's 90th. You played music to suit all ages, and were very pleasant and accommodating. And you got us all up dancing, which was fab. All 110 guests said how much they enjoyed you. I'd have no hesitation recommending you to anyone.Toni Edwards (90th - Stoke)
February 2013Dear Ruth and Aidan - Thank you for playing for us in your duo recently. I had high expectations after looking through your website and dealing with Ruth (who comes across as the perfect balance of warmth and professionalism). However, we were still blown away by how good you were. The birthday boy loved every minute of it and everyone had a ball. I don't think I've ever been to a party where such a high proportion of people were dancing. If you need any recommendations I would be happy to speak to anyone. Even a pub neighbour who apparently always complains about noise levels, told the landlady that it was a great choice of music and he had a great night! I would say that was high praise indeed! Thanks again, and I really hope we get to see you play another time. Emma Hyland (40th party - Aylesbury)
December 2012Nick and myself would like to say a massive big thank you to all the band for making our wedding evening such fun. The music was excellent and really set the mood for the party. We had so many amazing comments and were really pleased. The ceilidh was hilarious and you managed to get everyone on the dancefloor. Aidan's piping in the afternoon reception worked perfectly too. Thank you so much and I hope our paths cross again.Jenny Mourant (Venue - Casewell House, Oxford)
So sorry we haven't left feedback sooner - it's been very hectic but our wedding DVD reminded us of how fabulous you were. Laughed a lot at my mum winning the Irish dancing award! The dancefloor was full all evening and so many laughs... what a party you created for us! We've recommended you to many! Thanks so much, love and best wishes to you all.Cath Lister (Venue, Moxhull Hall, Sutton Coldfield)
November 2012Thank you so much for a fantastic night at the Coleshill Social Club and for helping us to raise so much money. The Green Man football team say thank you too and look forward to seeing you in the future. Kaz and Jeff x
Hi Guys - I recently attended the wedding of Laura Gee and Charles Kinsell in which you performed at. I just wanted to say well done and congratulations. The music was awesome and the reception a great success. I normally wouldn't dance, but the music dragged me to the floor. Consider me a new fan!(Dev Joshi - Venue, Moor Hall Hotel, Four Oaks)
*********Hi Ruth - A quick and very belated message to say a huge thank you to you and the band for your fantastic set at our wedding back in May. We received so many compliments about the band, both on the night and for many days afterwards. You were definitely the hit of the night! And thanks also for making it even more special by letting me sing a song with you. Ben was absolutely blown away, and very touched. And apparently I had a whole load of the guests welling up, which I thought was brilliant! (Aine Kelly, Venue - Eaton Hotel, Birmingham)
July 2012Now we've sobered up we wanted to send you a huge thank you for the fantastic soundtrack to our wedding. As a last-minute booking, only the male/female duo was available and to be honest, we had our doubts that you could entertain a big wedding crowd but OMG - you so did! It was an awesome day topped off by you guys. And busking Erasure's 'Give A Little Respect' was the highlight - brilliantly played and the whole crowd singing along - what a memory! An awesome day topped off by you guys :-) (Carrie and Warren Spiers, Venue - Cock Inn, Wishaw)
June 2012Hi Ruth, I had to write and tell you the band went down a storm with everyone at Tony's 50th - you were brilliant and they all loved you! Thank you so much for all the thought that went into your show. You were thinking about things that never occurred to me, and every suggestion you made contributed to making the evening flow fantastically. You're very professional indeed, and I'll be recommending you to everyone I can. Thank you once again for making the night - I can't praise you enough and I hope I get the chance to book you for something again in the future. Loraine x(Loraine Stockton, Wilson Labour Club, Quarry Bank, 50th)
May 2012Thanks so much for such fantastic entertainment at my party last night. Everyone had a ball and really loved the music and the atmosphere you created. And thank you for taking the trouble to perform 'Hero' with such short notice. I actually preferred your version to Enrique's! (Linda Daley, Warwickshire - marquee at home)

Sept 2011I booked Celtic Clan as the girl duo option, and they really made my party go with a bang. Ruth and Emma had the hard task of playing to a party audiance that covered 6th, 42nd and 72nd birthdays AND a house warming!! They rocked the place everyone was up dancing, even the oldies were doing an irish jig!!! Thank you so much. Guests have been texting all week to say how much they enjoyed you both. Hope to have you at my 40th xx (Justine Roden, Alvechurch - home venue)
August 2011Hi Ruth - we'd like to send everyone in Celtic Clan a personal message for your outstandingly brilliant peformance at our wedding on July 30th.

We really appreciated your performance - it was unbelievably good.Pete and Helen Wright (Wedding, Pembroke Lodge, Richmond, London)
July 2011Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the band for making my birthday celebrations so special. The band exceeded all my expectations and the number of texted messages I have received since Sunday commenting on how fab you were is mad! I'm sure we will be talking about the day for a long time to come. Many Thanks againNicola Kennedy, (40th birthday, Corkers Bar, Northampton)April 2011On behalf of the McEnery family, we would like to send thanks for a fantastic night of music. You really did make Mary's 60th a huge success, and people are still talking about the 'amazing band'. Celtic Clan are top class musicians and friendly, funny people. It was a pleasure to meet you all, and we will be booking you for our next party.Natalie Kelly, (60th party, Hare & Hounds, Coventry)
New year's eve 2009Wow! Words just aren't enough! What an amazing night. Celtic Clan really know how to get the crowds going. Thanks to this talented band, we hosted the best new year's eve ever- our customers are already re booking for next year if we can have Celtic Clan there!! Ruth's strong vocals, fiddle and songs started the evening off so well and then Keith built up an explosion of seriously entertaining music with his fabulous guitar and great sense of humor, the build up to midnight was so exciting. They then joined forces for the last half of the night to produce yet another fabulous combination. All in all, a real gem here, professional, friendly, easy going and seriously entertaining band who are going to go along way. Here's to the next gig. Thank you so much!
