Ceilidh, Your Way

Having a ceilidh is the perfect way to entertain your guests. What else gets everyone up on the floor and dancing together? Suitable for all ages and abilities, ceilidh dancing binds everyone together and forges lifelong friendships. In addition to traditional dancing, we can provide background music, adding a traditional flair to your event. After the ceilidh, we can turn our rig into a professional DJ outfit, meaning Bowreed are your one-stop-shop for evening entertainment.

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. 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, and how this Somerset ceilidh band can make your night magical.

We specialise in Scottish, Irish and English ceilidh. By special request, we can even perform as an American barn dance band.
