Cragganmore recently played at my Daughter and Son-In-Law’s wedding at Balbirnie house. They couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating before and during the event. Their playing is of an extremely high standard with a really fun energy. They played for exactly the right amount of time and took a couple of breaks so we could get our breath back. The dance floor was very busy, and everyone had a fantastic night celebrating. The perfect band for the perfect Scottish wedding. Thank you Cragganmore!

Absolutely wonderful ceilidh band!! Cragganmore played at one of the University of St Andrews’ Charity Balls and truly made the evening so special. Music was beautiful, calling and demonstrations of songs were very clear and band members were very engaging with guests. Would highly recommend, band went above and beyond our expectations!
