Everyone knows what a Ceilidh Band is, but Henry Marten's Ghost not only play you the music, they compare and because of their winning personalities, all people wanted to get up and dance. I can honestly say I have never seen our venue so full of dancing people. absolutely tremendous. We were slightly late leaving the table but this did not affect the band in any way. Absolutely highly recommended for any event. Charlie Gilbert (Party) February 2109
Hi, Padraig I just want to say what a great day we had with Henry Marten's Ghost, many people are saying it was one of the all-time great weddings. You and the band played a big part in that. The music was exactly what we wanted and the banter with our guests was great fun. Would highly recommend you for any event. Thanks. Tim Gordon (Wedding) January 2019
We had Henry Marten's Ghost play at our wedding & hand-binding celebration earlier this month. They were amazing and got everybody in the right mood for the celebrations. We have great videos, photos and memories of a night where they provided a brilliant traditional Irish folk soundtrack with people of all ages on the dance floor having a great time. We were also incredibly pleased with how communicative and hands-on Padraig was with us leading up to the night, checking in with us, making sure everything was in order and tailoring the set to suit our needs. We can't wait to see you guys play again and will certainly book you for any future events & celebrations we're planning! Phil Huntley November 2018
We absolutely loved working with Henry Marten's Ghost from start to finish. They delivered a magical atmosphere that our guests are still talking about. Their music was very inclusive, playing a variety of tunes for a diverse crowd. They felt more like old friends or guests than someone we’d hired. We would absolutely recommend them!
Henry Marten's Ghost played my wedding recently and they were really impressive. Their music consisted of the Irish standards that everybody knew and they had us all singing along to the wild rover and Molly Malone. A great band, book them, you won't be disappointed. Mary Hammersley September 2018
We booked Henry Marten's Ghost to play at our daughters 21st Birthday party recently and they were a tremendous success. Everybody really loved their music, they were a lot of fun and really got the party going. The band was charming and highly professional. They arrived on time to set up and entertained the guests both as they arrived and throughout the evening. Everyone at the party both young people and older guests really loved their playing and the range of tunes was fantastic. I would highly recommend this band. They brought warmth and character to the evening. This was definitely money well spent!

Dear Padraig Words cannot express how wonderful you were, at the celebration we had for my mum's passing, at Greenwoods recently. So many relatives asked whether you actually knew mum, as you had made it so personal, they were, as you could probably tell, really enjoying themselves! I could not have wished for a more fitting tribute to my mum, just sad that you couldn't meet her as she would have been your biggest fan that night! With sincere thanks, Angela Gander xx April 2018
Without a doubt the best Irish band I have ever heard! I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for something amazing, full of atmosphere and outstanding enjoyable music. We hired Henry Marten's Ghost for our wedding and would definitely hire them again. With a mixture of knee-slapping, fun jigging, Irish music which everyone can enjoy. You can't miss out on these guys. The diverse collection of songs which they play draws everyone's attention throughout the set and the enthusiasm which the band brings is incredible, the whole room was fascinated and amazed by them, and everyone was dancing. The music aside, the band and Padraig were extremely accommodating with any of our ideas or request throughout our wedding process, the music and presentation were exactly as we wanted on our big day and everything ran very smoothly, the team are very professional and will always do anything to help. Thinking of holding another party, just so we can hear them again! Thanks for everything. Rebecca Andrew April 2018
We just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much to you and the rest of Henry Marten's Ghost for playing a fantastic gig at our wedding last month! We had an absolutely amazing time, and you guys were the perfect end to the perfect day. We hope you had as much fun as we did, everyone thought you were brilliant. Thank you too, for the wonderful collection of CDs. It's a lovely reminder of the day. Rachael Bevans October 2017
