Fundraising With Ninebarrow

'One of the fastest rising duos in the country'

A community hall or church fundraiser concert always has something special - a group of people all supporting their local community with a shared love of good music. Some of our favourite concerts have been in these types of venues and we've realised that they they offer a unique opportunity to collaborate in producing truly memorable and really successful charity evenings.

WHAT WE DO?

Provide the music

Provide the PA equipment

Provide the lighting

Provide posters and flyers

WHAT YOU DO?

Provide a venue

Put up posters & give out flyers

Sell lots of tickets!

Provide refreshments

THE MONEY?

We agree on a practical minimum fee and a split of the ticket sales, creating an opportunity to raise money for the hall/church and for us. Any money made from raffles, refreshments or food is all yours!

We know that anyone who puts on a concert wants to know the act they're working with is going to be outstanding. You can see our awards and reviews all over this page, but nothing beats hearing an act live! 😁Here's a video that was filmed when we travelled to Ibiza to play at the fantastic 'Costa Del Folk' Festival!

 

 

Don't worry! 😊 We support our promoters every step of the way - we'll help you sell tickets and even provide a printed copy of our 'Guide to Concert Promotion'

 

St Peter's Church, Dunchurch

We were delighted with the evening spent with Ninebarrow. They proved a good attraction which helped us make a useful profit but there was far more value to their visit than that. Their voices in harmony are lovely and the standard of musicality is very high. They sang a range of songs from their albums, from the hauntingly beautiful to the toe tapping cheerful. They proved very engaging personalities with amusing and interesting commentaries about the songs they were about to play. They had been very helpful and encouraging before the concert and it was a real pleasure to host them. They would be very welcome back here any time.

South Luffenham Village Hall, Rutland

We experienced the first night of Ninebarrow's recent tour - after a day of them traveling up from Dorset - and they were fresh, energised and gave a thoroughly polished performance. Their rapport with the audience was pitched exactly spot on with gently encouraged audience participation and personal anecdotes. The standard of musicianship was exceptional and the evening was over all too quickly. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a high quality yet personal evenings entertainment.

Coddington Village Hall, Newark

Ninebarrow played traditional folk songs, their own pieces and some covers and with every single song the harmonies were flawless. Their musical talents also showed their abilities to make folk music accessible to all and I could have listened to them for many more hours. An encore truly deserved  by this talented duo. I can honestly say that this was one of the best folk groups I have heard in a long time and I will certainly be finding where they are playing next and hope to listen to them live again soon.

St Francis Church, Tamworth

Ninebarrow performed to a sell-out house in St Francis Church, Tamworth. The audience was made up of a mixture of committed Folkies’ - some of whom had travelled to see them - and local people. The atmosphere was warm and relaxed as Jon and Jay shared the stories behind their songs, then transported us with beautiful vocals and wonderful harmonies. We would thoroughly recommend booking this class act.

North Nibley Village Hall, Gloucestershire

What a wonderful evening with visitors from near and far. Warmth, humour and cracking music from this really talented pair. Really professional organisation and superb promo material and advice. Can't recommend more highly.

Are Ninebarrow actually any good?

You sound good! What about a recommendation? 

See for yourself! These were just a few of the comments we received after a concert we put on a little while back.

Create a magical evening

We want every single concert we're involved in to be magical. That's why we'll work with you every step of the way to make it a success. Here's a particularly special video which we recorded live at a church in Dorset with our good friend Louise Jordan. It's a version of 'Home, Lads, Home' - a poem by Cicely Fox Smith which we released as a charity single a few years ago:

 

So we hope we've managed to convince you to have a serious think about working with Ninebarrow on a future fundraiser; we'd love to hear what you think - and we'd be happy to chat over any questions you might have.

 

At the moment, we're doing well over 100 concerts a year and our weekends are almost fully booked for the next 18 months ahead. We've got a few tours we're still finalising though - so please do drop us a line and it'd be great to chat over possible dates.



All the best,




 

 

You're booked up HOW far ahead?! 😲
