Welcome to the online home of ceilidh band, Bowreed. We’re a traditional ceilidh band with a fresh, modern sound. We are always happy to hear from you regarding your event. Contact us to find out why we’re the UK’s leading ceilidh band!
Our specialties are wedding entertainment and corporate functions, but we’re experienced with all sorts of events. Whether you’re having a wedding, charity event or birthday party, we’re the band for you.
Thank you both so much… you were BRILLIANT and really got the audience moving. I’ve just added it up and we raised £21k profit!
You were brilliant lads, so much fun and dancing, we all had a fantastic night and everyone keeps saying how brilliant you were!
A Bespoke Ceilidh
In addition to ceilidh, we offer background music from solo fiddle players to a full Irish band. This adds a traditional flair to your event that will leave your guests buzzing. Having a wedding? A ceilidh is the perfect way to get all your guests dancing together. Throwing a corporate function? What better icebreaker than fun, inclusive dancing!
We can perform tunes and songs from Irish, Scottish and American traditions, or one of our solo musicians can play you down the aisle in style. Not bad for a local ceilidh band! Check out the packages page for more information, and choose the ceilidh that’s right for you.
What’s a Ceilidh?
The meaning of ceilidh is simple: an evening of delightful dancing to a live band. We use experienced callers to take you through all the steps. When the music starts, so do you!
It’s a great way for your guests to cut loose and have some fun. Ceilidh dancing is perfect for weddings and parties, as nobody is left out and it gets everyone moving. There is a reason people have been ceilidh dancing for thousands of years. Check out our ‘What’s a Ceilidh’ post for a more in-depth history.
We specialise in Scottish, Irish and English ceilidh. By special request, we can even perform as an American barn dance band.
