Cat’s Claw Ceilidh Band's Song list
Traditional and modern tunes from anywhere we can get them-Wales, England, Ireland, Scotland, France, America....you name it, we play it....
We can provide specific evenings of Scottish, Irish, English, Welsh or American dances and tunes if that's what you's prefer instead of a mix...just ask! Ceilidhs, barn dances, hoedowns, twmpaths - they're all enormous fun. You just need to see the huge grins on everyone's faces to see that they're enjoying themselves, and that makes it fun for us as well!
Can you perform covers?
We prefer to concentrate on what we do best so we don't normally perform covers, though we have been happy to learn a specific tune for a first dance, for example...
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We'll be as flexible as we can, so we can always alter timings to suit you in the run up to the day. When we’re there we can play as and when you want, and of course liaise with you throughout to make sure things are going the way that you want.
How much time do you need to set up?
We have a very compact PA system, so setting up only takes about 20 minutes. We always aim to arrive about an hour beforehand - we like to be a bit early as I find that it puts people’s minds at rest to know that we’re there and ready to go as soon as the venue can have the space ready for us to set up.
Do you provide a caller?
Yes, we do! Our caller will explain each dance and keep talking you through the steps after the music starts.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA) included in your quote?
All the band, the sound system, an experienced caller, and a great evening’s entertainment are included in our quotes! We arrive in plenty of time to get set up, so it’s stress-free for you too!
