London's finest ceilidh band
Ceilidh Tree played at our wedding a few weeks ago and were absolutely brilliant! The music was great, they were very enthusiastic and energetic and great at getting everyone involved! They had a solution to our first dance fears, making it far less daunting! Our Scottish guests were particularly impressed, preferring it by far to their local ceilidhs! Their DJ was fantastic too - accommodating our more unusual musical tastes without preventing people from dancing. We thoroughly recommend them!
Wow! Ceilidh Tree gave us an incredible night's entertainment at our wedding! We were blown away by how much our guests enjoyed it and got stuck in - even the ones we never expected to!! Highly talented musicians and the caller was very engaging and helpful. She made it easy and fun at the same time. And even where we did go wrong, we all had a laugh while doing it!! From beginning to end, Ceilidh Tree have been a pleasure to deal with - very quick to respond and a friendly service. We did look at a few ceilidh bands but Ceilidh Tree were by the far the most impressive - flexible to accommodate our requests and excellent value. It was an amazing experience for us and our guests to remember! Highly recommended!
We honestly couldn't have found a better ceilidh band for our wedding! Ceilidh Tree were so professional, the music was so well played, and Chris's calling was hilarious. He managed to entice people onto the dance floor who would never normally dare to throw any moves, so hats off to him! All our guests said the ceilidh was one of the highlights of the day, and we both firmly agree. Massive thanks to all of you for putting on such a great show. Catherine & Ian
Ceilidh Tree were the highlight of our wedding! From getting everyone into the room to start the ceilidh to finishing off with the whole group dancing round, they were flawless. Dances progressed from simple to get everyone going to more and more complicated (or perhaps that was just the whisky..) I've been to a lot of ceilidhs and few have been as well orchestrated. Seamless playing, clear calling and band members who were a pleasure to deal with. We had so many compliments, including from many who "really thought they wouldn't do much dancing but had so much fun". Thank you Ceilidh Tree!
Ceilidh tree played at our wedding last month. They were absolute stars and everybody loved their music. We had a lot of ceilidh virgins and they did a great job involving people. The called did a wonderful job and lots of our guests told us how much they had enjoyed the band. The set up was done perfectly, the band were thoroughly professional in all ways. I'd recommend them to all.
As soon as we contacted the Ceilidh Tree we immediately felt like Will and the band were going to be fun, easy-going and friendly. They absolutely lived up to our expectations and everyone had great fun at our wedding. Thank you!
Ceilidh Tree recently did a Ceilidh for our wedding. It was absolutely brilliant. Cannot recommend this band highly enough. It was so much fun and our guests absolutely loved the Ceilidh. 5 stars!
We booked Will and Ceilidh tree for our daughters wedding in June. Prior to the event Will was so kind and patient listening to how the day was to unfold and we were able to make extra little additions, for example, my husband playing his violin at the very end!! The tech equipment was set up seamlessly and we used the mics for the speeches . Then the barn dance started with a bang and the live music was wonderful and the caller excellent. After the barn dance the disco followed straight on without a break or a hitch. Will and his band had put together a play list we provided in such quick time. The quality is superb and the characters involved delightful. I thoroughly recommend Ceilidh Tree. Liz
Thank you so much for playing at our dad, Richard's Birthday party on Saturday. The music was fantastic and although we were terrible dancers everyone had a wonderful time trying to keep up! Thank you for making it extra special, dad was blown away by it all.
Will Dj'd at our wedding reception after we danced the night away to the Ceilidh Tree at another wedding. He followed my play list brilliantly but also threw in a few surprise twists and turns that fitted the mood of the room perfectly. We all had a great night dancing and everyone commented on how good he was. If you're looking for a great DJ with none of the usual DJ cheese to go with it then Will's your man. So thanks Will
We were extremely pleased with the Ceilidh tree from the start. Will was extremely quick at getting back to us and answering all our questions. What i liked most is the flexibility as the DJ comes with them. So we decided on 2 sessions followed by a disco, and on the night they were really good at gauging the audience satisfaction.They also took requests on the night which went down a storm. And i felt they were reasonably priced. Our venue also said Will was really helpful when it came to providing the info they required. Could not recommend them enough - friendly guys who were really pleased to be doing what they do best.
Absolutely superb, everybody completely loved it!
We had Ceilidh Tree at our wedding (3x 45 min sets) and I whole heartedly recommend them. Many guests had never been to a ceilidh before but had a great time. The pace was good, they did a range of different dances and we had a full dance floor from start to finish. Would definitely recommend to my friends and book them again.
Ceilidh Tree 'hosted' my 40th Birthday in Vauxhall in October and it was an absolutely brilliant experience. I had concerns about room size and shape but they were great at fitting in any number of dances into the evening. Will (accompanist) and Jo (fiddle) were charming to deal with and very talented, and Chris (caller) did a magnificent job. 48 out of 50 had pretty much no idea what they were coming to but by the end of the night they had every single person dancing a merry dance inside and outside the venue. I almost decided not to hold a ceilidh but I am so glad I did. Highly HIGHLY recommended.
We booked Ceilidh Tree for our wedding in May of this year. They were absolutely fantastic, and all talented musicians. The atmosphere they created was second to none - almost the entire wedding party was inspired to dance (even those who said they wouldn’t!). When we asked if they knew the Game of Thrones theme tune they jumped at the chance to learn it - for fun - and it went down a treat during the interval. Will was a pleasure to deal with - courteous and professional throughout the process. We can’t recommend them highly enough.
We had a wonderful Wedding Ceilidh from the Ceilidh Tree. Fantastic caller who really got everyone involved and our guests loved it (most of who had never been to a ceilidh)!
Ceilidh Tree played at our wedding and were outstanding. As well as being brilliant musicians, the caller was a star, just the right mix of patience while we learnt the steps, and then throwing us in at the deep end. All the guests have said what a great band they were. In particular, Will was very easy to work with, and always responded to questions quickly. We would heartily recommend Ceilidh Tree to anyone, and are looking forward to seeing them again soon!
Ceilidh Tree came to play at my 50th birthday party on 4 October 2014 and they were great! Organising the whole thing was very easy - Will is very friendly and efficient. The band themselves arrived in plenty of time and set up without fuss. Their sound and choice of music was excellent. The caller encouraged everyone to dance and guided us through the steps with patience and humour. I loved the ceilidh and had lots of feedback after the party to say how much fun it had been. I'd definitely recommend Ceilidh Tree and would use them again in future.
Celidh Tree performed at our wedding. Everyone loved the dancing and thought it was a great way to get everyone up and involved straight away, and we were delighted that we chose Ceilidh Tree. Will in particular was a delight to deal with, giving up a lot of time beforehand to discuss ideas and also inviting us along to Folk of the Wood to check the band ot before we booked. The band on the night were fantastic - the music was brilliant, and both the caller and other members of the band were very helpful at explaining the steps to everyone.
