Trust the Natives

Oxford has a strong dance tradition, and it’s one that we’ve been part of from day one. You can find us at the Oxford Folk Weekend, performing in one of Oxford’s colleges or simply playing tunes in a local pub. We know Oxford inside out, and are always happy to give advice on venues. If you’re as passionate about dancing as we are, feel free to request specific dances!

We Know Our Dances

When you book us, you’re booking our years of experience and deep knowledge of the tradition. We’ve spent many long hours in the Bodleian Library poring over dusty tomes to bring you the most fun, interesting and inclusive dances. Whether it’s your wedding, birthday or corporate event, Bowreed are the ceilidh band for you. Have a look at our exciting line ups to see how we can make your day a success.

The band members were very friendly and so flexible on the evening with what our preferences were… Thank you so much for helping to bring about such a great finish to our wedding day!

Just want to thank the band for an incredible evening. We were thrilled to see all of our guests dancing with each other… The caller was clear and the band a delight to dance to. Thanks again!
