The Good Folk – Folk and Festival Wedding Band

wedding festival band

The Good Folk are one of The Band Boutique's longest running wedding bands. Usually they are a fully electric rock and pop covers band (see here). In their folky guise they offer the same dancey sing-a-long songs but with a more folk inspired style. They utilise classic instruments including violin, double bass and acoustic guitars to give a unique twist to their setlist perfect for a festival themed wedding.

The members all met when studying at the ACM in Guildford. This is one of The UK's most prestigious rock and pop music schools so you know each of the members has been highly trained in the art of performance and music.

Festival Themed Weddings

As most weddings seem to coincide with festival season lots of couples like the idea of theming their big day accordingly. This band fits perfectly in with a festival themed wedding or event with their folky / Mumford and sons style look and sound.

If you're after something even more special the band offer two distinct sounds so it will be like having a support act and a headliner!! Check out the bands other style here - The Shapers.

The Good Folk are based in Surrey but are willing to travel all over. When enquiring please let us know where your event will be and we will give you a full quote including all travel costs.
