Everyone said its the best music they've ever heard... We've heard a lot of Irish music and in our hearts no one compares” - Gary & Kerryanne
For most people, the haunting sound of the Uilleann Pipes and Irish Music are synonymous. Nothing heralds the arrival of the bride quite like the sound of the pipes, which bring a unique and authentic mixture of ancient Irish Culture and Tradition to your Wedding Day. This is the mystical, unique and melodic sound which Arundó can bring to your wedding. Arundó are a very experienced and talented group of Traditional Irish Musicians who have played at hundreds of weddings throughout Ireland and further afield over the years. With 20 years of experience playing weddings, part of our service to you is helping guide you through your music selection with sensitivity and care. Every wedding is special to us - they are joyous occasions and we respect the ceremony be it Catholic, Protestant, Humanist or Civil. We make it our aim to give you a most personalised and intimate wedding music experience.
Arundó crosses musical genres seamlessly, making the band ideally suited to entertain your wedding guests on your special day. The band can enhance your wedding ceremony with haunting Irish, Classical and Contemporary instrumental music and song, and can provide a lively set during your pre-meal drinks reception. Arundó can also entertain you with a spirited Céilí, which can include Irish dancers and a dance instructor - a wonderful addition to your wedding celebrations! See our Céilí video if interested.
Arundó also routinely perform many of the religious hymns popular at wedding ceremonies, and over the years, have built up a substantial repertoire of religious music (including several hymns in the Irish language).
Based in County Cork, Arundó play an exciting mixture of traditional (original) and contemporary Irish Music (and also dabble with the haunting sounds of Andean music). The band’s sound revolves around the uilleann pipes, the flute, the guitar, the mandolin, and the bodhrán. Over the years, Arundó have jammed with legendary musicians such as Imelda May, members of Elton John’s band, Mundy, and have played for prestigious occasions such as the UCC Honorary Conferrings where sports stars Brian Cody , Denis Irwin, Ronan O’Gara , Aidan O’Brien and Mary O’Connor were all honoured. Arundó have also entertained well known public figures such as Micheál Martin, John Lonergan, and Sean Gallagher, and have supported The Cork Simon Community and Trócaire. Arundó's latest musical project has seen them provide the entire musical soundtrack to a new DVD promoting Ireland.
During the summer, Arundó play a residency at the Blue Haven, Kinsale.
In order to simplify the process of selecting music for your wedding, Arundó have created an online portal where you can listen to samples of all of our music. Please do contact John at 087.232.2751 in order to access this. We look forward to bringing Traditional Irish Music and Culture to your wedding day!
We have established a thorough set of COVID policies and procedures since the emergence of COVID to guarantee the safety of both the wedding party and the musicians.
