The Troubadours are an internationally travelling duo and band with exceptional live cover versions that have been featured on BBC Radio. Versatile and adaptable, they are able to perform in a wide variety of settings.
Comprised of musicians who have been gigging and touring professionally for over a decade, the band formed as an acoustic ‘side-project’ arranging quirky acoustic versions of their favourite songs. After being featured live on BBC Radio Berkshire and filling local venues, the side project has become a busy international act playing at weddings, festivals and events across the UK and beyond.
This acoustic style band features both female and male lead vocals, often harmonising together to create thier own beautiful versions of old classics and new songs. Thier set can feature songs from The Beatles to Bruno Mars, The Eagles to Ed Sheeran and Frank Sinatra to Fleetwood Mac, all arranged in their relaxed but polished acoustic style.
The Troubadours can create the perfect atmosphere for celebrations, weddings, parties and events. Whether performing as a duo with an arrangement of a special song for the perfect wedding ceremony, or as an upbeat 4 piece for getting the party started. Described as 'mellow and ubeat in all the right places', thier huge repertoire of around 300 songs, expandable line up from vocals and guitar to full band and years of experience as gigging musicians makes them incredibly versatile.
The Troubadours sound epic on a big festival stage, but thier stripped back acoustic set-up means the band can perform in smaller spaces, intimate settings and work with sound-limiters. Unlike many live bands, the Troubadours can create the party atmosphere without shattering ear-drums!

From the moment we saw The Troubadours perform we knew they would be fantastic at our wedding. We chose to have them play during our ceremony and they did not disappoint at all! It made the whole ceremony more personal and was a wonderful touch that we could choose our own music to be played live!

What equipment/space is required?
The band is fully self contained, and will bring suitable sound and light equipment for the venue.
