Highlights

* Up to six performers

The King's Minstrels have extensive experience in all types of events and are very flexible in their approach, allowing them to fit into any situation. Being able to play both ‘soft’ medieval music on lutes, harps and fiddles, and also ‘loud’ on shawms and bagpipes (all performers are multi-instrumentalists) gives a great range of options to suit the place, time and occasion.

The King’s Minstrels can supply a troupe of up to six performers all of whom play instruments and perform period dances, and can also run a 'medieval ceilidh', teaching some simple dances to all.

This variety makes The King’s Minstrels a great option for wedding ceremonies, dinner music, drinks receptions and outdoor events.
