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 Surrey 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.

 Make Your Event a Success

You can book us to play at your birthday, wedding, party, pub or festival.  We have experience playing for a variety of events, and love to play in Surrey. We are made up of some of The UK’s leading traditional musicians and callers.

All our members are passionate about ceilidh dancing, and love nothing more than to get your guests up on the dance floor for an evening of all-inclusive fun. Don’t believe us? read our glowing reviews here!
