The Yorkshire Minstrels - Medieval Minstrels
If you are planning a medieval themed wedding or party then this medieval minstrels are perfect for creating the right atmosphere. Their medieval musicians specialise in performing music from the middle ages on an impressive array of period instruments including lutes, flutes, recorders, bagpipes, harps and percussion. Their minstrels can also provide comic tales and medieval dancing.
If you are looking for a lively, fast and loud sound, look no further as they also offer a medieval party band. If you prefer instead a gentler sound with a close eye on authenticity, their Minstrel Duo would be the perfect choice.
They work with a vast array of other performers, so we can also bring along jesters, knights in armour, a medieval master of ceremonies, a falconer…. it’s up to you!
They can provide music for wedding ceremonies or handfastings that have a medieval or Celtic theme. Typically, they might provide beautiful background music on medieval guitar and harp as your guests assemble, followed by something stately and processional (perhaps on bagpipe) for the entry of the bride. Their singers could present a medieval romantic song to serve as a reading if required - they have often performed the courtly love songs as an albums for this purpose and they are very beautiful. They can play again as the register is signed, and lead your guests out with something jolly after the ceremony.
Although they often stay to present entertainment throughout the wedding feast, you may choose to book them for just the ceremony.
The music for the ceremony will be carefully selected to ensure that it suits you. They can provide MP3s of the music, so that you can get a good impression of the sounds that we will be making. They can also perform a request, though do bear in mind that our medieval instruments might not be ideally suited to all musical styles.View similar acts:
