OMG Grainne and John there are actually no words. Your music, your singing was absolutely sensational. Every single one of our guests commented on how amazing you were and how you made hair stand on end. We were all so blown away. Your online videos don't come close to how spectacular the live event truly is. Thank you most sincerely from the bottom of our hearts for making our day the most memorable day ever. We were also so delighted that we chose you for our reception music, it was defo money well well spent ???????? Maeve and Mike

Grainne Singer & Harpist was amazing on our day on the 29th June 2019 in The Glen Of Aherlow. I was so greatful that Grainne travelled a distance to our Church. Her voice is so so beautiful and she wowed everyone. Her song lists were perfect with a mix of everything. We were so happy with our song choices as it made it personal to us both. When she sang 'The Prayer' every single person was in awe of her. Our guests spoke so highly of her. Thank You for making our day so memorable and personal. We highly recommend Grainne to all future brides & Grooms! The harp was so beautiful. Such a talented lady. Thank You Sheena & Stevie

There is only one way to describe Grainne and John's performance for our Wedding ceremony- stunningly beautiful. They are so talented and professional.We received so any compliments from our guests about the ceremony music. Grainne and John learned our entrance song-you've got the love. We are so delighted to have them and thank them from the bottom of our hearts. I would highly recommend Grainne and John to future couples if you want a ceremony that you will never forget.

Grainne and John made our wedding ceremony so special. The music was amazing and really moved everyone. The prayer literally took peoples breath away even had the priest in tears! We had some many people comment on the music and singing, it really had a lasting impression on everyone.
Review by
"Grainne & John sang at the church for our wedding in March 2019. From our first dealings with Grainne, the experience was very pleasant and coming closer to the wedding date, her advice on song choices was extremely helpful and made our lives much easier. To be honest, what actually followed on the day of our wedding was way beyond all expectations. To say they were incredible is an understatement. We were blown away ourselves and all our guests were constantly talking about the church music for the remainder of the day and the rest of the weekend. And people are still speaking to us about the music and enquiring about your details. We still get goosebumps when we think back about it and we will do for the rest of our lives!! If you do book Grainne & John, The Prayer is a must for a song choice. They nearly blew the ceiling off the church with the incredible performance!! And got the biggest round of applause of the day when they finished it!! Thanks very much for everything guys!!!"
Review by
Grainne and John are two incredible people and two spectacular singers. They go above and beyond to become part of your day in a personal way that every bride and groom could only hope for. We lost my father in law three weeks before our wedding and Grainne and John made us feel he was there. With us through their music and we will forever hold that magical feeling they brought to our ceremony in our hearts. They truly deserve recognition for what they bring to a wedding day and especially to ours where they recognized our heartbreak with our loss and happiness with our marriage and merged it to something truly spectacular through their songs .

Grainne and John were absolutely amazing. They completely set the scene for my friends wedding and made it truly magical from start to finish. I couldn't get enough of their beautiful voices and harmonies and was absolutely transfixed by every line they sang. I've booked them for my own wedding next year and must say that they are an absolute dream to work with too in the run up to it. They have a massive repetoire of songs as well as being completely open and willing to include additional songs we requested. I've been recommending them to everyone since I heard them sing. I can't wait to hear them sing on the day of our wedding and am feel so lucky to have wedding singers whose voices w e love so much and singers who we trust completely in the run up to the wedding. I would definitely urge anyone getting married to book Grainne and John.

Where to start with these two! They absolutely blew us away when they performed for our wedding a few months back. When I was struggling to pick the perfect songs, Grainne stepped in and gave some brilliant and honest advice and she could not have been more right, everything was just perfect! Both John and Grainne have the most magnificent and powerful voices and our guests spoke of them for weeks and weeks afterwards!! We can't thank you both enough and we would recommend them to anyone!

And my guests are still talking about how brilliant they were. They were so easy to deal with and so accommodating when it came to choosing our songs. They made the run up to our wedding stress free and made our day so special.

We have been to a few weddings with John & Grainne been the wedding singers and from the moment they start to the very last song they just blow your mind away with both music and voice. Their performance of 'The Prayer'is like nothing I've heard before. We were so impressed by them that we have booked them for our wedding next September. They are so talented.

Grainne and John were amazing. Their voices blend together so well and the support of the harp is fabulous.They were the highlight of the wedding. Everyone is still talking about them months later. Excited for the wedding video to re listen to them,all of the songs they sang were beautiful and I remember thinking at communion i could listen to this all day but then they sang the prayer and WOW they lifted the roof off the church the power and control in their voices incredible. I have recommenced them to everyone I know.

Our wedding was magical because of Grainne and John. They are truly amazing. Right from the first conversation they couldn't do more for us. They helped us choose music, they advised on the layout of music within the mass booklet, the answered all calls and emails immediately and above all they rose the roof on the church. They were simply amazing. Their rendition of the prayer had the whole congregation in tears, it was so beautiful. People commented that they would pay to hear them in the opera house. If you are looking for musicians and singers go no further. They are flawless. I even changed my mind on a song 2 days before the wedding (bridezilla ????) and they were happy to learn it on short notice and performed it perfectly. I got my video back this week and i had hairs standing on my arms hearing them again. Couldn't recommend them highly enough.

I attended a friends wedding recently where Grainne and John were doing the music in the church. Speechless is the only thing that comes to mind. I had no idea how much of a difference excellent church music would make to ones wedding day. I wouldn’t show my emotions too often but I sat in that church and cried along with the bride and other guests. Grainne and John pulled on everyone’s heart strings. They were so professional, had amazing voices that worked so well together and to have the harp chiming in too, it was perfection. I couldn’t recommend them enough. Everyone was talking about the music at that wedding for weeks and months after! Incredible!

I don't even know where to star with these two!! From the start Grainne was so accomodating and friendly, nothing was too much bother, and she gave honest and sound advice regarding our music choices and really helped us pick songs that would add to the ceremony. We heard them at a friends wedding and knew we had to have them for our own. On the week of our wedding a snow storm hit, and the country more or less came to a standstill. Many of our guests, and indeed some suppliers had to cancel as conditions were just too bad to travel. I didn't even have to ring Grainne & John so see if they were coming, Grainne rang me and assured me that all was in hand and that I was not to worry about anything. It was only after the wedding I realised the lenghts they had gone to to be at the wedding for us. Both were snowed in and had to load all their instruments and speakers etc into tractors (!!) to get them to the main road, and then organised further transport from there! Imagine putting a harp into a tractor!! This brings me to the music itself. OUTSTANDING. When I say these two made the ceremony, I really mean it. The lead up to the wedding was obviously stressful with suppliers/guests cancelling, but honestly when I was sitting there beside Philip, and these two were lifting the roof, all the stress just melted away and it was all worthwhile. The singing was the talk of the entire wedding, and months later still is. Words cant express how magical they are live. I cant believe what Grainne and John went through to deliver for us on our special day, to say they went above and beyond is an understatement. These two are the next level in terms of professionalism, warmth and ability, from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU and honestly if anyone is considering booking them, do it! You will be left with memories for a lifetime!

Karen! Yours is a wedding I won't forget ???? it was such a lovely occasion and I'm thrilled that it all went off so well despite the snow! Every best wish for the future! Grainne and John

I was at a wedding Grainne and John sang this Christmas. To say I was blown away is an understatement. They were note perfect throughout and were the talk of the entire day! They had an amazing mixture of songs each one better than the last. Without a doubt I will be trying to book them for my own big day. Could not praise these two highly enough. Sheer class. 10/10

Hi Grainne and John Sorry I'm only getting to message ye now. Trevor and I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you both for the absolutely amazing job ye did for our wedding ceremony on November 17th. Your voices were absolutely flawless!

But when ye sang The Prayer everyone was just speechless, it was such a special moment. Grainne you were so nice to deal with and so so helpful when it came to song choices. Ye even went as far as learning the song Galileo especially for our day, we are so grateful for that and john did such a great job with it. We are so glad that ye were part of our special day.

Guys, I don’t even know where to begin, to say ye were phenomenal is even an understatement. Ye blew everyone away in the church, people were raving about ye for the whole wedding.

I can’t express enough how grateful we are to you guys, ye made the church so eventful and people including my brother (who does not attend church) said how amazing you guys made the ceremony. Ye are just phenomenal and I was completely blown away by yer talent. Thank you for being a part of our special day. Ye made it even more special for us. Kindest regards, Gillian & Bryan :) Xx

Grainne and John both played for us during our ceremony. I couldn't recommend them high enough. There is no right words to use to give them justice, they were just unbelievable outstanding. When they sang the prayer they literally nearly lifted the roof of the church it was incredible. Every one of my guests spoke about them on how they have not heard anything like it before. Guest were left with goosebumps. They were fantastic to deal with over the last few month's Grainne was amazing with giving me guidance and listening to what we wanted from them. They were just amazing in every way.

We first heard Grainne and John sing at a wedding fair and they immediately had our attention from across a crowded room. Wow! We booked them there and then.Their voices are just absolutely stunning. They were an absolute delight to deal with and so professional. Nothing was too much hassle and Grainne was absolutely fantastic in helping me plan the music for the church ceremony. Honestly could not recommend them highly enough. Our guest are still taking about their performances at the church, particularly their performance of 'The Prayer'. Really added so much for our ceremony and were a joy to deal with. Young and old loved them and their voices together are fab! Highly recommend!

Grainne and John played at my sisters wedding recently and there aren't enough words to describe how good they are. They compliment each other beautifully. Their singing will leave you with goosebumps and the hairs on the back of your neck standing. They received a huge round of applause and rightfully so. Everyone at the wedding said they'd never heard such amazing singing at a wedding. Would highly recommend them to any future bride.

I cannot say enough about Grainne, with only 6 weeks to go my ceremony singers fell through and after posting in a wedding forum grainne came to the rescue with such short time to the wedding she was so professional and totally took all the stress away from me and was so cool and relaxed and exactly what we wanted for the day I only had to mention briefly what we were looking for and Grainne just went with the flow and was so accomadating I would highly recommend her to anyone and I honestly can't thank her enough for being part of our day shes amazing

Just a mini message to thank Grainne and John enormously for participating so beautifully in our marriage ceremony! They were a huge hit with our guests and really gave the ceremony a special edge that people weren't expecting! Even some of our friends that would have no heed in the ceremony not to mention the music were commenting on how amazing and talented they both were! In summary and in a fair and balanced way the service provided by Grainne and John was sensational! I can't recommend them enough! Best wishes Celine & Alan x

I cannot recommend Grainne and John enough! They are really nice people, super to work with and really made our day very special with their beautiful voices and musical talents. We first came across them at the Killarney Wedding Fair, they sang 2 songs on stage and literally the whole crowd stood still to listen to them, enchanted with their magical sound. We of course booked them straight away. When it came to deciding what music to use for our ceremony they were more than helpful giving good guidance and helped us pick the right songs that were a reflection of our characters. They even learned songs that were not in their portfolio. But the overwhelming memory of the day for a lot of our guests was a song that was performed at the end of the ceremony. My husband, along with a gang of his friends wanted to sing a surprise song "Stand By Me" at the end before we walked down the aisle. Now, they arent the best singers in the world and were a bit nervous about it but John and Grainne were super and put them at ease. The song went down really well, the whole congregation were singing and having good fun with it. Our videographer said it was amazing and something he had never seen before. He had the video up on his website before the end of the day!! lmweddingsvideography.com . Thank you Grainne and John so so much for everyting, you really did make our day really special.

Hi Grainne and John were brilliant for us. They helped Paula ( Bride) chose the songs for the wedding which went down very well with the crowd. We decided to sing a song at the end of the ceremony in which 6 of our friends and the bridal party all got up on the alter. We were all nervous about this but John made us look professional. The guests are still talking about us singing 'Stand by me'

Absolutely excellent church music for our wedding! All the guests were super impressed with the music! Really beautiful-so good at what they do!!
Review by
Heard Grainne and John perform at my cousins wedding in August, all I can say is wow. The mix of music, their epic voices, the harp... it was truly beautiful. during the more romantic numbers I had to wipe a tear and most people were the same. I saw the bride whisper 'thank you' during a particularly beautiful performance to a friend who recommended this duo, I don't think you could give a better endorsement than that.

Grainne and John were absolutely fantastic when they sang at our church wedding back in April. From the first enquiry I knew they were the perfect choice. They were always so quick to reply and helped us to choose the perfect songs for our ceremony. They were more than willing to learn songs that weren't even on their song list and sung them better than the originals! There wasn't a dry eye in the church when they sang 'The Prayer' during the reflection. Even to this day our guests are still talking about how beautiful the singing was. I couldn't recommend Grainne and John enough, they were outstanding

We cannot thank Grainne & John enough for the music they provided on our wedding day. Grainne was a pleasure to deal with from day one, such a great bubbly personality and such a calm confident way that we were in no doubt but that our wedding music was going to be perfect. She guided us through all aspects of the ceremony and lead us where we needed to go in helping to pick the music. She even sorted out a last minute emergency with one of our groomsmens suits ripping!! There is nothing this girl cannot do!! The music was unbelievable on the day, every song Grainne lead us to was perfect. They were literally the talk of the day, everyone started clapping after the communion songs as they didnt realise The Prayer was to come yet-so they got too rounds of applause! Everyone was raving about them and they definitely were the highlight of the day and a memory we will cherish forever. We cannot wait to get the DVD back so we can listen to it again! Would recommend these two to anyone, if you are looking to make your day unforgettable, then these two will do just that for you! 10/10

Grainne was top class to deal with from day one, from her suggestions for song choices to the execution on the day, we could not have asked for any better. We knew they were good but they exceeded our expectations and more!! Many of the guests commented that they were blown away by the music at the church and I am confident that they will have lots more weddings from their amazing performance on the day.

I would recommend anyone to book Grainne and John if they are looking for something special for their day. From the beginning they were so wonderful to deal with, had no issues learning new songs and were so professional. To this day we are still being told how amazing they were.

Grainne and John were absolutely amazing at our wedding. We were so happy that they could travel from Tipp to Kerry to perform at the church and the drinks reception. From the beginning both Grainne and John were so easy to deal with and learning new songs was not an issue. All of our guests commented on how talented they were and how amazing they were and were delighted to see Grainne and John play during our drinks reception also. We really could not recommend these two more, they really did make our day so special. We will never forget the songs that were sung at our wedding, especially The Prayer'. Absolutely amazing. Would travel the ends of the earth to hear these two again.

Absolutely amazing. A pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Was so happy we booked them. They are very in demand so we were lucky they were available for us. Grainne is so easy to deal with and we did most of our correspondence via Facebook which made it very very easy! They even learned new songs just for us as the were a few songs that had special meaning for us. Their performances on the day were sensational. I don't think a single person left without making a comment on how good they were! I would highly recommend. 5/5

We had Grainne & John for our ceremony music this October and they were the single most talked about aspect of the day. From start to finish Grainne was a pleasure to deal with, her easy manner, warmth, guidance and willingness to learn new songs really took the stress out of planning it as I didnt have a clue where to start with ceremony music! They took our breath away on the day, as they did everyone elses, people still ask me where I found them and how I managed to get them to do our wedding, each song was genuinely better than the next and when they sang The Prayer they brought the house down! They got an impromptu ovation and the priest said he had never heard anything like it before! There was complete silence in the church when Grainne sang Nella Fantasia, amazing!! I have had lots of people looking for your contact numbers and I would have no hesitation in telling people to book these two quick! A touch of class.

I was a guest at a wedding recently where John and Grainne performed. I have been to a quite a few weddings, but I have never ever witnessed anything like the performance they gave that day. To say they put their heart and soul into it would be an understatement, and they really looked like they were genuinely enjoying it! Everyone was blown away with them, I thought we had reached the highlight when Grainne sang Nella Fantasia, but I was wrong! All I ask of you was something else and I think my husband had something in his eye when they sang the prayer :) Genuinely was blown away by these two, and I only hope I get to see them perform again, an amazing duo! 10/10

I'm so happy that we booked grainne and John for our wedding last October. They were so helpful From the very beginning and had tons of suggestions when we were lost as to what music we wanted. Everything on the day went really smoothly, the mix of music was great and months on I'm still being told about how fantastic everyone at the wedding thought they were! I would (and have)highly recommend them to anyone for their church and drinks reception music

I honestly cannot recommend Grainne and John enough! The music made our day so special,I really felt that they got to Know us as a couple and helped choose a range of songs that complimented our ceremony perfectly. Grainne and John are so talented, many of our guests commented on the wonderful job they did on the day and how they would love to see them Perform again,to be honest I was sorry I didn't book them For the drinks reception too! I would recommend them to any bride and groom that wants to make their ceremony special and individualistic, they really take it to another level,if I could recommend a song that has to be included, when Grainne sang nella Fantasia it felt like time stood still. Cannot recommend this musical duo enough!

These are a fantastic duo for your church entertainment, if you are looking for the wow factor these are the people to book, they have a great repertoire and Grainne was very personable & bubbly when putting our arrangement together, took the stress out of everything. The first time I came across this duo was @ the UL wedding fair, they were doing an opera piece and everybody stopped and turned when they performed, afterwards the queues at their stall for bookings was crazy. Watching our wedding video back you can see the guests whispering & looking on in awe they belted the tunes out, as soon as we came back to our drinks reception our guests were asking who they were, how amazing they were, some had hairs stand up on the back of their necks, we got married in the Aran islands and people were still talking about them getting off the boat home, a real wow factor, a great theatrical operatic type range of music that was just so different and stunning, a few of the girls in my bridal party commented that John was very easy on the eye as well :) we were extremely happy with them, big thumbs up from us!!

Both grainne and John played for our wedding. It is without a doubt the most special moments we treasure from the day. Grainne was amazing in helping us in the run up to the wedding to choose all out music and songs. Even wit panic setting in the day before Grainne kept us both calm and for that we will be totally grateful. Future brides and grooms could not go wrong booking this amazing and special pair.

Hope this conveys how truly grateful we are and how much we loved the ceremony. From the start to finish of our wedding preparations both Grainne and John were absolutely amazing. They met with us, gauged our personalities and helped us choose our songs. The music at our wedding ceremony was exquisite. All our guests are still talking about each and every song played and most of all "the prayer". So much so and something I've never seen before the church erupted into an impromptu round of applause. That moment alone will stand in our minds for many years to come. Grainne and John you have both made our day so magical and special and we can't thank you both enough. Words can't express how highly I would recommend you both to any couple starting the wedding planning journey.

I attended a wedding at which Grainne and John performed at in June, and all I can say is they were show stopping! I never leave reviews but i had to this time as they were unbelievable. I couldnt wait for the next song at every part of the mass! They had the whole church capivated and i was genuinely sorry when the mass ended, I could have listened to them all day long! Without any doubt I will be booking them for my own big day, they made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. The highlight and the talk of the day. Fantastic! 10/10

Grainne and john are beyond words, but I had written an email to thank them after our wedding in May so I will use that. You will not be disappointed with this duo. "Everyone was absolutely blown away by your singing, I'm not joking absolutely everyone at the wedding and I do mean everyone, has been taking about your singing all weekend. One girl, whom isn't engaged, wants your number for her wedding! Loads asked me for your details so I hope you get something out of it. All the boys were amazed as well, all the photos show them with their jaws on the floor! And apparently all the girls were crying, ye really did move everyone, us included! It was so amazing we couldn't have even imagined it any better, you're both so talented! Magic!"

We organised a charity concert recently and discovered Grainne and John through a wedding fair. They volunteered to come along and support our concert. They were brilliant, so professional. A straw poll at the end of the show placed them 'top of the bill' to most of our supporters. They really 'brought the house down' at the finale. Couldn't rate them highly enough they really are the best. Both slow, romantic and more up tempo numbers are in their repertoire and all done with true feeling.

Hi Michael, Thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure to take part for such a worthy cause. I hope we can join forces again in the future to do the same. Grainne & John
