Ah, we had a great Cèilidh. Thanks so much to Ceithir. Excellent style great sound. They did a great job of calling out all the steps. Our Zimbabwean-Scottish Cèilidh totally rocked!

Ceithir played for our wedding and were absolutely fantastic! They were so lovely and easy to work with from start to finish, always communicative, and were very understanding and flexible when discussing our requirements for our wedding reception. Plenty of our guests approached us afterwards to say how much fun they had at their first ceilidh, and we're very grateful to Ceithir for their enthusiasm and for making sure the dances were easy to follow and fun for all the first-timers. Thank you so much once again for everything and we're so happy to have booked with them!

Booked Ciethir for a last minute wedding Ceilidh and they were great. Good bunch of guys who put on a lively and fun performance that guests were talking about the next day. Would recommend!

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

You can let us know exactly what your requirements are for the night - we can be flexible to some degree so just let us know ASAP if your timings shift.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes - we can play Spotify through our PA between sets and just after we've finished playing to keep the atmosphere alive.

How much time do you need to set up?

We require roughly an 45 mins/1 hour to set-up properly and ensure that our system sounds good and is prepped for the dancing to start!

Do you provide a caller?

We absolutely do! Multiple members of Ceithir have experience calling Ceilidhs, so rest assured we come fully capable of directing our dances clearly and concisely.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA) included in your quote?

Yes - our quote includes use of our PA, mics, Spotify playback, our instruments; and of course, our charming selves!
