Davey Weddings Other Services

Corporate
Davey Music also has an increasing portfolio of corporate events, and can provide a range of Irish traditional and classical musicians and singers for every possible event including conferences, product launches and hospitality events. A solo harp or piano can add an elegant touch to any event and for something a bit more energetic, our folk group 'Beyond the Pale' can entertain the audience with the full range of Irish ballads and popular songs.

To encourage more guest participation, we can provide an authentic Irish or Scottish céilí experience with 'The Blackstaff Céilí Band' along with an experienced caller who will get the guests up on the dance floor and guide them through all the steps. We also work with a world-class troupe of Irish dancers to provide a complete and unforgettable evening of the very best Irish traditional entertainment. Recent corporate engagements have included providing music for a major radiology conference at the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum, for the Cancer Outcomes conference at Titanic Belfast, and during the recent Belfast Tall Ships Festival.

We regularly support community events and are pleased to offer special packages for community groups and charitable organisations. For further information about the corporate services we offer, please email Patrick on info@daveymusicweddings.com

Education
Patrick Davey has been teaching Irish traditional music on the uilleann pipes, flute and whistle for over 30 years, working both privately and in local schools. He is very much in demand as a tutor of Irish traditional music and for the past 14 years has been preparing students for the Irish traditional music grade and diploma examinations of The London College of Music - during that time Patrick has overseen many hundreds of examination entries and has produced an impressive 100% pass rate among his students.

Many of Patrick's students have achieved notable successes in local and national Irish traditional music competitions and some have progressed to become respected performers and tutors in their own right. Patrick also works in a number of local primary and post-primary schools, teaching individual and group lessons and directing student ensembles to give performances at school concerts, functions and open nights. Students are also encouraged to progress through the LCM graded examinations as these can contribute UCAS points for university entry.

As well as providing weekly tuition, Patrick can also give bespoke school workshops, working with students on curriculum-based musical projects. Recent projects have included guiding the students of Elmgrove Primary School in East Belfast through the process of composing an original song on the topic of the Irish famine, and working with the students of St. Anne's Primary School in South Belfast to create a soundscape based on the Belfast shipyard and the construction of the Titanic.
