The Instagram Sofa Sessions with Wedding Singer Éire.

Introducing The Sofa Sessions with one of Ireland’s Premium Male Wedding Singers and Musicians – Barry Hughes, Wedding Singer Éire

The Sofa Sessions – A Weekly Feature on Wedding Singer Éire Instagram (@weddingsingereire)

Hello to all future brides and grooms out there especially those that have booked Barry Hughes – Wedding Singer Éire to perform on your wedding day.
I hope all the wedding planning is going well and you are getting more and more excited about the big day as time passes.

I’m posting here to let you know about my new feature on my Instagram.
THE SOFA SESSIONS. This is a weekly (possibly twice a week) session on my Insta Story where I take requests for songs that my couples would like to hear me play live from my sofa! Just me, my guitar and my smart phone. Acoustic tunes galore!! So check out my insta account and see what it’s all about.

This feature is to help those who are having trouble picking songs, would like to hear a certain Church hymn from my song list, want to start planning their wedding music and would like to hear a few live clips, or just want to get involved in the excitement of it all and hear some of their wedding music in advance. It’s an interactive session and the last 4 sessions have been great fun. Feel free to request a song or two some time. This feature only started in mid Febuary and already I am seeing a great reaction to it with song requests coming in every few days.

Join in the fun…

Check out my instagram account or just search @weddingsingereire and anytime you see the SUGGESTION BOX – just type in your song title and artist and I’ll get around to recording it in the weeks following. 
You can view the previous Sofa Sessions on my Highlights on instagram too and
I look forward to taking your requests. 
(this feature is exclusive to instagram users. Requests will only be taken via the Suggestion Box every few days [there’s one there right now if you want to get a request in] and not by DM messages)
