About Buchanan Ceilidh Band (BCB)

Ceilidh band
Brighton
Public liability insurance of £10000000 million
The Buchanan Ceilidh Band comprises a versatile group of musicians who are highly experienced playing for ceilidhs and barn dances.

David began playing the piano at the age of 7 and then learned to play the accordion in the school Scottish Country Dance Band - The Forth Bridges Dance Band - when at school in South Queensferry. The Buchanan Ceilidh Band will provide a full Scottish Dance Band sound with a caller, playing all the well-known tunes one would expect for the traditional Scottish dances. David also plays accordion in the Irish band Shenanigan and is also comfortable playing pop songs if required to give variety to any function.

Could not have been happier with David and the band. The ceilidh was fantastic. Every guest really enjoyed the night, and the Scottish guests said it was the best ceilidh they had been to!

David was fantastic. He got all the students dancing, was very clear in his instructions and we danced the night away until past midnight. He made Hogmanay an unforgettable evening and we’re so grateful for his involvement!
