For our family reunion we sought out a Celtic duo as it honors our Grandparents.As an artist who has spent over a decade doing art shows,farmers markets,etc,I am keenly aware of the ups and downs of hiring music.My review here comes from my experience with dozens of musical groups.Blackbird surpassed all of our expectations.They were extremely professional even though we were hosting a backyard event. They were very tuned into the activity, they always seemed to be playing the right song at the right volume.The music was inviting,joyful and exactly what we hoped.The background that they provided set the tone for an amazing event. They are who you would want to hire.
