Here are are few of our reviews so far from 2019

From Clare Slipper, wedding

The Hub, Edinburgh, May 2019

Hi Mary and team

Thank you for the lovely email and for providing us with such fantastic music and entertainment on Saturday. We absolutely loved it, all of our guests had so many great things to say about the music and I’m sure you could tell they had a ball!

We will be spreading the word about your fantastic band and hope that we might see you again in the future!

All the very best

Thanks you so much Mary and Simon you made our day so so special you were both incredible and read the crowd so well and the kids loved the Ceilidh and group dances.

We loved the mix of music, fun and laughter it brought the day.

So so lovely to meet you both and have you join in what will be a memorable day 📷

Hi Mary and Simon,

Abi and I returned from our honeymoon on Sunday and have been returning to ‘real’ life haha.

The memory of your band and how well you played to the atmosphere of our wedding has stayed with us both.

Everyone who went to the wedding has said how impressed they were with your music and calling.

I think that the way that you responded to the mood of the room and helped us to have so much fun on our wedding day was fantastic.

Thank you both so much for playing.

Thanks to you also for your swift communications with us - it was an event that was planned fairly late in comparison to other weddings - the way that you kept us up to date with your set-up helped us to feel confident that we had a band that we could trust to make our day special.

Thanks so much for your kind words wishing us well, we loved meeting you both and we loved seeing how much you both enjoyed bringing joy to your audience and dancers.

Best wishes for the remainder of your wedding season!

Birthday Party, Sloans, Glasgow March 2019


Thank you for Saturday. You certainly helped make it a great night as it was good to get people involved and get them up and mingling with others. You also both play very well and the tunes were brilliant. You were fantastic with Emily as she was loving it and she certainly picked up with your dance instructions.

Thanks again..

We will certainly be recommending you.

European Church Conference Ceilidh, Grassmarket Hub, March 2019

The ceilidh was the talk of the business meeting on Friday morning so I think everyone enjoyed themselves. The delegates had had such a busy day I think they were just shattered by 10am.

Thanks again.

Thank you so much for a wonderful evening. We have had so many compliments on how great you sounded even though there were only 2 of you, and that the calling was excellent.

Best wishes,

Hi Mary,

I hope you are well. Sorry I have not really been in touch. I am still on a high from the ball – it really was such a fantastic night! Everyone has commented on how brilliant BRC were!

Hope you have a lovely week.

Best wishes,

Birthday Party, Railway Tavern, Cardenden January 2019

Hi Mary

Thank you so much for entertaining us all so well on Saturday evening. Everyone we spoke to on the night commented on how great the band was and it was really good that you managed to get so many of our guests up to dance. We all had a ball and a lot of that was down to you both. Well done. Carole xx

From: Moira MacDonald

Birthday Party, Spice Lounge, Edinburgh, January 2019

Dear Mary,

Many many thanks for Saturday night. A great time was had by all (‘despite himself’ as my 18 year old nephew put it, which is praise indeed!). I’ve had loads of texts and emails from people saying how much the band carried us and entertained us, and how quickly you got the measure of us and got us all on our feet.

It has been a real pleasure working with you and I hope we meet again, in ten years, if not before.

Very best wishes and many thanks,
