From the driving melodic core of Celtic Clan, one of the UK’s premier Irish party bands, comes the exciting new duo – Emerald Stones.
Featuring the instrumental and vocal talents of Anthony White Jnr. and Dominic Crane. Mixing guitars, banjos, and other traditional instruments, underpinning a joyous blend of harmonious vocals. Emerald Stones perform all the Irish favourites and timeless pop classics that guarantee to turn any event into a celebration and party occasion that will thrill guests with lasting happy memories.
Born 10 years apart into musical families, both Anthony and Dominic were inspired to pick up the guitar age 11. Anthony in Dublin with its thriving heritage of traditional bar sessions, and Dominic in London partly due to the encouragement of his great uncle George, a popular East End busker.
Having had successful separate careers throughout the 1980s and 1990s, they share decades of experience with an impressive CV that includes publishing deals with Warners, Virgin, and Island. Running the Underworld Club in Camden, and performing throughout the UK and Ireland opening for a range of chart-toppers including Mike and The Mechanics, Toyah, Sharon Corr, Roachford, and Nick Heyward.
Following in the footsteps of his uncle Joe of the popular Irish band The Jolly Beggarmen, Anthony developed a keen interest in traditional Irish music in the early 2000s eventually leading him to join Celtic Clan in 2013. When Dominic joined the band in 2017, the two men rapidly build a strong musical rapport and established Emerald Stones.
An Emerald Stones gig guarantees the craic with all those tunes to so love to sing and dance to. Be prepared for a Ceilidh or two – so make sure to bring your Irish legs!

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!

I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
