About The Roaming Folks – folk style pop covers band based in London
7 reviews

Welcome to the eclectic world of The Roaming Folks!

A carnival of spontaneous musical wonder, born from the chance combination of three somewhat brilliant, like-minded musicians, on one dark, cold winter's eve, early in the year of two thousand and nine...

The Roaming Folks are an eccentric, continental-esque ensemble, blending violin, guitar, accordion, and 3-part male harmonies.

More information about The Roaming Folks

We cover a hugely varied repertoire of music ranging from the 1800s to the present – from Muse to Dizzee Rascal, Frank Sinatra to Britney Spears.

We play folky covers in our own quirky, inimitable style, complete with a good dash of comedy and theatre!

Whatever your taste; with our genre-spanning concoction of music we can't fail to entertain!

So please come in, have a jig, and join in the maniacal musical madness that is..The Roaming Folks!

Are you tired of hearing those same cliched covers of Mr. Brightside and Summer of 69..? Do you have a wedding, party, or event fast approaching and you're looking for something...a little different to entertain your guests? Say, a quirky trio of musicians...?!

We can perform either acoustic or amplified – all our creatively arranged covers in our upbeat, folky style, clear as day from our handy PA, suitable for a crowd of up to 150!

ALTERNATIVELY...unlike that gear-laden band tethered to the stage, one of our most popular and unique features is that as an acoustic act, we will ROAM your event..!

This allows us to play up close and personal, ensuring every guest hears us as we play our somewhat mad and quirky music, spreading theatrical atmosphere wherever we go!

We make a habit of interacting with our audience where we can, whether serenading the happy couple, getting people involved, or spontaneously 'attacking' someone (in the musical sense)! So be prepared!

Weddings

Everyone loves a wedding, and none more than us! Anyone can hire a function band – but a quirky, contemporary folk trio is thinking well outside the box!

We will complement the occasion not just musically, but aesthetically and charmingly!

With no drums to worry about, we take up minimal space, or we can roam the event and play to your guests personally, whilst providing a soundtrack that will ensure your guests never forget your special day!

Whether your event is set in stone, or just an idea floating around in your head, don't hesitate to get in contact if you think you might like to have us play for you!

We always make every effort to be flexible to your needs, and are happy to have a chat about any special requests (including a specially arranged song favourite)!

We can include a saxophonist, double bass or other instruments by request.

We have varying price packages to suit your budget, and we provide a quote based on your exact requirements.

The band was recently booked on FixTheMusic for a small corporate gathering at Wilderness Reserve in Suffolk.

So if you're looking to hire the finest folk style roaming band London has to offer for your wedding or event, get in touch with us.

“The Roaming Folks were an absolute HIT. Their breezy music for the ceremony was perfect for our outdoor occasion, as was their walkabout for the drinks reception in the gardens. They totally kept to the brief we gave them, even though it was slightly different to their usual repertoire. Their serenade to the bride & groom at the end of the day was a class act! If you want a bohemian young group to make your day a little different, then I would highly recommend The Roaming Folks; they were all a pleasure to deal with.”
