The Penny Farthings

The guys were very adaptable about playing outside (covered but cool courtyard despite the heaters) and kindly played on for a short time after the agreed hour to allow guests to go into dinner.
We hope they enjoyed their cigars.

The Penny Farthings

The Penny Farthings played at our wedding for around 90 guests. As soon as they started there first set, they had the whole room up dancing..it was to hard not to, with their bluegrass/ folk type music, similar to the well known Mumford and Sons. Even though they only needed a small amount of space, they had a massive presence in the room . The guests loved them so much, we even asked for an encore, which they did and it certainly ended the night on a high!! This band is highly recommended and they will certainly be first on our list for any future events!! Thank you guys for making our wedding unforgettable!

The Penny Farthings

"The Penny Farthings recently performed at our building a creative nation national launch event at the Southbank Centre and they were outstanding. They were talented, fun and a major talking point for the evening. The feedback from our guests on the evening was excellent."

"Thanks for last night, you guys were fantastic. I think every single person I spoke to last night commented on great you guys were. I think the proof was in the completely full dance floor the entire evening."
