The Flying Sergeants play a range of instruments from the accordion and balalaika to the bones and the banjo, and know exactly how to get your feet stompin’ and your legs dancing with their loud and lively sets!

The band specialise in traditional Irish, English, Celtic and Eastern European folk music for dancing, but, if you are looking for a more relaxing performance, they’re more than happy to play an acoustic set of folk ballads, perfect for creating a low-key and calm atmosphere at a drinks reception or afternoon event. Alternatively, if you'd like to step up your guests' involvement, The Flying Sergeants can also bring a trained caller to talk them through a range of set dances.

On the evening, the music got everyone on their feet dancing and having fun well into the night – even the staff were to be seen do-si-doing away in the kitchen! Caroline, Wedding, Southampton

The Flying Sergeants have headlined at various folk festivals including the Merry Tom Fest in Northampton and The Great Eastern Fest in Brighton. They’ve performed in numerous venues during Broadstairs Folk week in Kent and played alongside the Albion band at the Hailsham Pavilion.

On their most recent European tour, The Flying Sergeants played in a range of venues in Belgium and Germany, before finishing their tour in the beautiful Krkonoše mountains of Poland.

Previous celebrity clients of the band include Terry Pratchett, Sophie Dahl and Natasha Wightman.

The Flying Sergeants are happy to play song requests and can add a dance caller to their act to get everyone moving in time.
