“Ashling” means “dream” or “vision” in Irish Gaelic. The Ashlings want to be a part of your dream for your special day. Guitarist and singer Laurel Brauns, and cellist Amy Mitchell create a sound that is both classic and contemporary, for brides that want to mix tradition with something a little edgier, something that is unique to them.
Listen for yourself on the player to the right. Songs range from time-honored processionals and recessionals, to new twists on wedding songs like selections from the Cure, Oasis and Neutral Milk Hotel.
Our favorite challenge is a bride who has her own requests for the songs she’d like to accompany her march down the isle, or her first dance. You have your special song, and chances are, we can learn it!
We are a great solution for couples looking for music that is simple, elegant and memorable for their wedding day. One of the biggest advantages to booking the Ashlings is that we can play your ceremony, and then switch gears to be your reception band, playing an upbeat selection of Americana, Irish and traditional favorites.
We’ve played weddings at Timberline Lodge, Willamette Valley Vineyards, Suttle Lake, Sunriver Resort, Five Pine Lodge, and from Alaska to Maine when the time was right. We’re based out of Central Oregon, but always happy to travel, and we’d love to talk. Let’s start the conversation here: email@example.com or 541.604.0246.
