About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

I'm a professional, fully insured, musician with 15 years experience. I play Irish fiddle and acoustic guitar and sing. I have traveled to Ireland yearly to bring back authentic music from throughout the country and played many pubs and sessions both in the Emerald Isle and the U.S. I am not a classically trained violinist who learned some Irish music for diversity's sake, I am a fiddler, well versed in the nuance of real Irish and Scottish folk music. I have played weddings, funerals, pubs, vineyards, spotlight shows, house parties, receptions, and even in sessions at the library of Congress. I've also played multiple renaissance fairs and have extensive experience busking. I have full Scottish highland attire and multiple costumes to make the setting for your event perfect if you're looking for something outside of standard formal wear. I'm just as happy to be center stage as background music, my ultimate goal is to see you happy. I love unique and challenging gigs so hit me with whatever far out idea you might have. I want to hear your craziest musical dream, and I want us to make it happen. I can also perform popular contemporary music as well, as I have done that for martini bars, vineyards and parties in the past. Thank you for reading!

Review by Luke A.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on June 5, 2021From Hanover, VA

Brandon did an amazing job performing at our wedding! He gathered some ideas from us early on in the process to make sure he captured the right vibe for the event. He nailed it! We had one song request for my bride's walk down the aisle. It was beautiful! The flowers were nice and dinner was delicious.. but we'll remember Brandon's beautiful music when we think back on our special day. And so will many of our guests. We received lots of compliments on his music. We can't thank Brandon enough and look forward to seeing him play again soon!

The Wandering Bard - One Man Band:

Thanks Luke, it was a pleasure to spend the day with both of your families at the tavern. I appreciate you letting me do some "fiddle improv" to the contemporary play list you put together. Next time I will have to make more use of the corn hole game. Best wishes to you and the Mrs!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on April 18, 2021From Annapolis, MD

Brandon was great! He tailored his play list to my Dad and it made the surprise that much more enjoyable! He was on-time, prepared and responsive to all my communications in advance. Would use him again! Highly recommend.

The Wandering Bard - One Man Band:

Thank you Mary, it was a joy to meet your friends and family. Your father was a charm and I enjoyed hanging out and hearing about him and his friends days sailing and adventuring. He was a dashing young lad based on the photo on the snack box you provided me when I left!! Best wishes and please don't hesitate if I can ever be of service in the future.

CelebrationReviewed on February 27, 2021From Washington, DC

Brandon was phenomenal- he was open to all ideas on how the performance would go, totally responsive and organized, got everyone involved as I’d hoped. And of course he is just a fantastic musician and story teller. We just had a wonderful time.

The Wandering Bard - One Man Band:

Thank you so much for allowing me to share an evening with your friends and family. Playing for large audiences can be fun, but there is nothing that can match being able to share a real connection with kind people in an intimate setting. Your enthusiasm and passion was unrivaled and I hope to see big things from your daughter Devans musical pursuits in the future. 'Til our paths cross again...Erin go bragh!
