The Wild Turkeys are one of Ireland's best acoustic instrumental trad bands. 

They are available for church and civil ceremonies, drinks receptions, Dinner and Day 2 entertainment. As a versatile group they can offer groups as small as 3 musicians for your micro wedding up to 8 musicians depending on your needs. With over ten years of experience the Turkeys will be sure to have the perfect package for your needs.

All of the members are professional musicians and have high profile careers including performing An Chualainn live on RTE for the 100 years Dail celebrations, performing with Riverdance, and have performed with international traditional superstars like Sharon Shannon, Gerry O Connor, Michael O Suilleabhain, Michael Buble, U2, Kila, DeDannan, and Zoe Conway.

A number of our musicians are also classically trained so it is possible to join the two genres to create something very special for your ceremony.  We are always very happy to arrange a couple of songs especially for your wedding day. We have arranged songs like One Day Like This, What a Wonderful World, Blackbird, and Pachelbel Canon for previous weddings. 

Although primarily an instrumental group we are happy to offer a selection of songs throughout our set including follow me up to carlow, whiskey in a jar, Marie's Wedding, Mursheen Durken, Tell Me Ma, Raggle Taggle Gypsy and Galway Girl. We can offer you an acoustic set or as of September we will be able to offer you a fully micd up set at no extra cost. 

We now are delighted to announce one of the members of our group  is a traditional Irish dancer and she is amazing!!!! We are happy to create a bespoke show for your needs. Get in touch today to chat more about it.

We still have availability for 2020 and 2021 so get in touch today to check if your date is still available.

Brilliant musicians and fantastic singers, the Wild Turkeys were the perfect accompaniment to our wedding ceremony in Smock Alley Theatre. They also entertained our guests during our drinks reception and all our guests loved them, we received great feedback all day. Very easy to deal with and very helpful, they even learned to play the songs we wanted for our ceremony music. I cannot recommend enough.

Amazingly talented musicians and excellent at setting up the fun atmosphere for a wedding. We had their 3piece set up which was perfect for our small wedding at the end of August, they played during our Wedding drinks reception but would of worked equally well for after dinner, especially during these covid restrictions. Linda was helping us organise what would suit us on the day and was so helpful and friendly to deal with. I would book them again for any other occasion in the future for sure!!

The Wild Turkeys played at our wedding ceremony and we were SO happy with how everything went, we would definitely recommend them. They were really accommodating with the songs we wanted, and played a selection of music from classical to popular songs to trad. They were great to deal with in the run up to the wedding too. It all sounded amazing, we received so many compliments from guests on how beautiful the music was, it really made the ceremony!

This group of talented musicians played the music for the ceremony at our wedding. We had a beautiful mix of classisal pieces, both instrumental and voice and to mix it up they also played some lively traditional pieces which was a real treat for everyone on the day. We also had them play for our day two celebrations. They created such a lively happy athmosphere all night and had the crowd joining in singing and dancing all night long. They really made our wedding weekend extra special not just us but our guests also. Thank you so much guys.
