Freight Train Runners
I am a big believer that music is so important in setting the perfect atmosphere. It is crucial to make the time to keep in touch with the bride and groom and get to know them, learning their music tastes and personalities. I have always loved weddings and really enjoy working within the industry. Complimented regularly by music lovers for my carefully selected setlists, I have recently put together an alternative and well received function band made up of talented and professional musicians I have worked with previously.
Freight Train Runners are a five piece Festival style, Folk/Indie/Rock/Blues/Pop band.
With a line up of experienced and talented musicians featuring female vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, double bass and cajon drum, Freight Train Runners offer a unique style of an eclectic range of music. Covering artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash to more recent Mumford and Sons, Dua Lipa, Paolo Nutini, this is the ideal choice for music lovers. Setting a variety of moods from chilled to lively, they can provide the perfect soundtrack for an unforgettable wedding day or event.
Freight Train Runners offer 2x one hour sets as standard plus a first dance if the bride and groom wish, however can offer bespoke packages where we can discuss different ideas that suit the wedding day best.
Lead Singer and Tambourine- Connie Deadman
Lead Guitar & Backing Vocals – Ed Adams

Double Bass – Brian Throup
Cajon Drum – Kurt Phillips
Prior to the big day Connie was so organised in finalising our details and kept in touch with the venue and was so flexible with her availability and set arrangements so there was very little we needed to worry about and get involved in. She had chosen the perfect songs that could be enjoyed by everyone there. In the evening, everything was set up inside and the tempo picked up getting everyone in the mood to dance the night away. So many of our guests commented on how wonderful Connie was on the day and how relaxed the whole day was. I honestly think Connie played such a big part in making our day perfect. I would highly recommend her for any event or celebration. Such a beautiful voice, so musically talented that she was able to tell what worked for the guests, and such a lovely bubbly person to have there on the day. Just fantastic!2017 couple
