The Perfect Live Bands for your Barn Wedding

Choosing to hold your wedding in a barn allows you to truly immerse yourself in the great outdoors. The added security of a roof overhead means you will have your wedding guests dancing whatever the weather. Complement the rustic feel of your barn wedding by choosing live folk music in the vein of Mumford & Sons, Bon Iver, or The Lumineers. The boom of indie folk music stars over the past decade proves it is a failsafe choice when it comes to planning the party of a lifetime!

Creating a bespoke atmosphere

A barn is a big area to play with and you will want to choose a band that can fill the space and creates an atmosphere. Many folk wedding bands incorporate a well-known pop roster of songs, to get your guests on the dancefloor. By adding a folky tinge to familiar hits, your unique entertainment will thrill your guests whilst fitting seamlessly into your barn setup.

Here are some top tips for narrowing your selection down and selecting the perfect band for your big day:

  1. Take a look at the repertoire of songs that your band already knows. Do they fit in with your music tastes? Do they already know how to play the song that you want for your first dance?
  2. Check what is included when you book your chosen band. Think about how many sets you would like them to play, how long you would like them to play for.
  3. Consider your budget. Does the band you want fit in your price bracket?
  4. Watch videos of your chosen band's profile and social media. This will give you a good of what you can expect from their performance.

Taking you from nuptials to night-time

Folk wedding bands can offer you versatility when it comes to sound tracking your big day. Opt for some soft, acoustic background music whilst your guests arrive. You could consider getting your chosen band to learn a meaningful song for your first dance, adding their twist to your choice of tune. Turn the volume up to 11 in the evening, as your folk band performs a barnstorming selection of hits to get the party going.
