Do you need music for an Irish funeral or a wake?

During the lockdown we are still providing solo pipers and singers for funerals, conditional to all of the safe distancing protocols being observed fully.

Sean, all my family and I would like you to know and for you to pass on to the band that they were fantastic at my mother's wake yesterday - they made it the perfect send off for her for her family and friends all of whom have been steeped in the traditional music and the ballads and songs of Ireland - can't praise them enough - they made the day - thanks, and thanks again!".

Saying farewell to our loved ones with Irish music, adds great poignancy to the occasion, creating lasting memories.

We regularly provide Irish singers and pipers for funerals to perform at the service or graveside and also live music and songs for the wake that follows.

Acts will perform songs or tunes of your choice at the funeral, often associated specifically with the deceased such as; 'Danny Boy', 'I watch the Sunrise', 'How great thou art', 'The Fields of Athenry', 'The Coolin', 'Amazing Grace', etc.

For the wake we can provide great Irish duos and bands and we'll be happy to help you talk through the most suitable option to meet your needs and advise you on choice of tunes or songs where required.

Live Irish music for the wake?

A solo singer guitarist, duo or band for the wake afterwards is a popular addition with many of our clients and is a regularly booked package for both the service and the wake.

We provide Irish acts across the country for this increasingly popular way of saying goodbye to a loved one and we've found it has grown in popularity enormously over the past 5 years.

Bagpiper or Uilleann piper?

Perhaps the Uilleann pipes are more of an 'Irish' instrument and the unique celtic sound is essentially more associated with an Irish occasion.

However, the bagpipes have the added feature of the piper waering the Irish kilt. He's also able to walk whilst playing, whereas the Uilleann pipes is played seated.


pipers fees

Cost varies depending on location and proximity of the nearest piper available.

You can get more information on Uilleann pipers here and Bagpipers here. Fees start from £280 inclusive.
