Amy Rowan Casting is looking for musicians and have provided the following brief. “We are looking for trad/folk musicians who can sing and play banjo, fiddle and/or bodhran. These musicians will play together and pretend to be friendly singing butchers in the ad! These characters are a mix of a friendly butcher and a folk musician playing the Sunday night session in the local pub. They are happy, friendly, approachable and passionate about the music. The playing will be mimed but will have to look credible and the singing will be live.”
