Folkswagon

"Great sound, great mix of songs, floor was packed all night. Really nice lads. Highly recommended and would definitely hire them again!!"

Folkswagon have been hailed as one of the most exciting folk and indie cover groups in the UK. The band specialise in recreating their passion for classic folk and modern classics, and also offer electric pop, rock and indie hits.

Overview

Expect the likes of Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, George Ezra, Neil Young, Bob Dylan and a collection of classic covers with a folk twist! They also offer electric covers of well-known indie, rock and pop hits from Stereophonics to The Killers.

They provide the total live music solution with tons of enthusiasm and professionalism that guarantees an evening to remember. The band also covers music of all genres dating back five decades to present day. Folkswagon will tailor each set to suit specific requirements (acoustic as well as electric) ensuring you will receive the music you need to get your party going...

Reviews

Folkswagon

Hireaband were great throughout the entire booking process. Very communicative with swift replies to emails and very helpful responses.

We rearranged our wedding 3 times and it was never ever any trouble to transfer the booking to a new date at no additional cost.

Folkswagon were incredible. The band were very friendly and accommodating, nothing seemed too much trouble. They played a daytime set as well as an evening show, both were perfect. We had a full dancefloor and lots of comments from our guests on how great the band were. The guys also did a brilliant job playing our first dance song. We would highly recommend!

Folkswagon pulled out all the stops to help us rock the night away. From the kids to the grandparents, they had a tune for everyone. A must have for any wedding!

I wanted to say a massive thank you for finding this amazing band Folkswagon for the event yesterday. Our Director and team were super thrilled to have them. We got a lot of filming done with the band and I guess the edit will decide what is happening with the music. Super thanks guys for everything. Paul, Ollie & Matteo were very helpful and cooperative.

We usually run around and speak to everyone at live shows. Folkswagon captivated us! We didn’t speak, we listened. Excellent!
