Consisting of a strong female vocal paired with acoustic guitar, upright bass, drums, banjo and mandolin, this is Kind Ears, a four piece traditional folk band available for weddings, private parties and corporate events.  

They aim to provide a classic folk sound to traditional and contemporary floor-fillers, with the added twist of their own unique arrangements!

They love performing covers from an eclectic range of artists; from Johnny Cash to Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dolly Parton to Rihanna, The Pogues to Elbow and Madonna to Oasis. With such a broad and appealing repertoire they are guaranteed to entertain multiple audiences and age groups! Very much in the foot tapping and barn dancing genre, their high energy performances and vintage image will add to any special occasion.

Kind Ears currently perform across the length and breadth of the UK.

Kind Ears

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and your band immensely for playing at our wedding. We are sorry we ended up being quite late running which had you waiting for things to get going, but the wait was worth it. Everyone was bowled over with your music and the quality.
It was a small intimate event, so may not have been as a packed house that you are used to, nonetheless it was very special. So thank you for travelling such a distance to make the day for the two of us. I wish you well in your future events and will be sure to recommend.

Thank you to Kind Ears and to Libbi and Irving from Hireaband for an excellent service from beginning to end. Hireaband provided a reliable and efficient service responding to my queries really quickly and helping to make arrangements for our wedding reception. The website was easy to use helping us to make an excellent choice. Kind Ears were fantastic. Really flexible, good fun and above all, great musicians. Guests all complimented the quality of the band and their unique style. They were described as a 'class act' and the dancefloor was full all night. They helped make what was a perfect evening for us and we would highly recommend the band and their agency. Thank you very much again.

Izzie and the Balderdash Boys were simply perfect. We got married in Barcelona so there was an added element of logistics needed, but at no point were they any hassle for us.

As for their performance, we couldn’t ask for more. They played all the songs we loved and the dance floor was always full.

Thank you for playing the soundtrack to the best day of our lives :)

Kind Ears

Our guests all commented how terrific Kind Ears were and loved their unique style. We really appreciated the distance they travelled from Manchester to Devon to be with us on our wedding day. Their style really suited our tipi, boho wedding. They learnt our first dance by City and Colour (Canadian Band) - The girl and this was extremely special.

Kind Ears

Izzie & The Balderdash boys (3 piece set-up) were fantastic, they arrived on time, were very professional and had a great sound which went down brilliantly with all. Would thoroughly recommend to others and would be keen to book them again for future events

Kind Ears

We asked Izzie to perform for our wedding in May and were absolutely delighted with the band and their performance! Izzie is a lovely person with a great voice, and was professional and reliable in the planning stages. The band is very talented and our wedding dance floor was busy throughout their 2-hour set, which, as we were told, is very rare for a wedding! They were happy to learn and play new songs for us which weren't on their set list, which made the evening even more special.
Thanks, Izzie, for a memorable night and some great music!

Kind Ears

I was very lucky to have Izzie & her wonderful band mates play for my 40th birthday party. Having seen them perform a couple of times on the local gig circuit I knew they were just what I was looking for and they did not disappoint. The bands traditional folk/blues instruments perfectly compliment Izzies voice and together they make a great sound

Kind Ears

Kind Ears are a pleasure to work with; professional and extremely talented. Shortly after having them play I made them our house band to play weekly and they delivered an incredible live music set every week which the crowd loved!

Kind Ears

Izzie & her band played for us in the afternoon of our wedding during our drinks
reception and they were fantastic! All of our guests commented how amazing they
were live and their unique sound set the afternoon off perfectly. Izzie was really
helpful before the wedding and offered to play all of our favourite songs. They were
even flexible enough to play inside and outside when the great British weather got in
the way. We would thoroughly recommend them!

Kind Ears

The most absolutely amazing set of musicians here today, different, unique and
