Upbeat American folk music on fiddle, guitar, and banjo. Equally at home on the stage or around the campfire, our sets include old-time Appalachian and traditional Irish fiddle tunes mixed with modern and original folk songs.
The band has performed for special bar events and fundraisers as well as wedding receptions and ceremonies. Please contact us to see how we can tailor our music to your event.
I've loved seeing Outbound Traveler around town, their music is fun and great for events. dI booked them for one of my events and they were super great to work with, made everything easy and they did a great job. They got many people up and dancing and I received positive feedback from the audience and coworkers. Their style is versatile and appeals to everyone. Really great as a main focus for an event but also great as some added entertainment. I have them booked for my next event 4/2018 and I can't wait to work with them again!
Outbound Traveler is not only an amazing band, they are also wonderful people.
From the onset of communication through payment for the gig, Outbound Traveler was extremely communicative, polite, and always answered my numerous questions in a timely manner. During the event, they played beautifully, engaged with the audience, and imbued the 3 hour time slot with upbeat and vivacious energy that I in large part credit the success of our fundraiser to. In terms of musicality, they communicate very well with each other, have a large repertoire, are incredibly well rehearsed and don't miss a beat (pun intended). Their ability to be extremely flexible with the loose schedule I provided them was so helpful. I received so many comments from guests regarding the professionalism, stage presence and talent of the band.
On top of their amazing talent and energy, they are such kind and easygoing people. They made an incredibly generous donation to our fundraiser, and took the time to understand the mission of our organization rather than treating the event like just another gig. I cannot recommend Outbound Traveler highly enough. Our staff still talk about how much they loved their music, and we are so excited to hire them for future events.
Price Range: Starting at $300
Gig Length: 45 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
Our band is comfortable being a feature performance or serving as background music for any event. Our members have performed for tiny house concerts to festival stages and can play everything from slower Irish waltzes for walking down the aisle to rousing traditional mountain music for square dances. Performances can include songs or can be completely instrumental.
We have an easygoing style that works well for informal and rustic events and we can provide our own sound equipment if desired.
