Kiss the Blarney are a three piece band playing traditional and contemporary Irish music on a variety of instruments - we play banjo, fiddle, accordion, guitar, bass, flute, whistle, mandolin, sax and maybe a few others (but admittedly not all at the same time!).  We've played for pubs, festivals, birthdays and weddings and specialise in cheerful uptempo music to get feet tapping and people singing along.  There's more information on our website at .
Contact Arthur Marshall (the fiddle player) on 01625 474588 or

Based near Leek Staffordshire, Barbara Ward-Breuer is an experienced singer and vocal coach who is also able to use her hypnotherapy training to help students enhance their performance
