Alistair Paterson

Guitarist, Vocalist & frontman

Thanks for taking time to check us out.
For me I feel its an honour to be invited to come and play popular dance tunes and entertain at someone’s wedding, or any other party event come to that. The truth be said, I do have a soft spot for a wedding. To give two people a good send off for me is as good as it gets in the entertainment world. I did not realise this till we started doing weddings, and the response and gratitude has been overwhelming. I know for me I will be doing this for as long as I’m able, and I know I’m just getting started.

Sara Farquharson

Lead Vocals

Hi. I've worked with Alistair for over 20 years now and it's exciting to think how far we have come from those very humble beginnings to now performing at some incrediby pristegious events. With no end in sight we are excited to see what the future holds.


Fiona Wilson

Rhythm guitar and vocals

Hi, My name is Fiona. I’ve been singing in various forms most of my life, from pop function bands and acoustic duos to traditional folk set-ups, as well as writing original material. I studied modern musicianship in Edinburgh for a year, and studied Scots Song at RSAMD in Glasgow for a short period, before joining fahrenheit on backing vocals and guitar.
I love the variety of venues and functions we play at, meeting new people and the satisfaction of watching the crowd having fun on the dancefloor.
