If you are looking for a ceilidh band with energy and enthusiasm to fill your dance floor then you have come to the right place!

When Dancing Feet Ceilidh Band are unleashed, you are in for a night of wild dancing and intoxicating music. They’ve taken the music back to its roots and breathed new life into it with a unique lineup of fiddle, pipes, flute, sax, guitar, and cajon. Their creative use of live looping creates a sound that is both great to dance to and listen to! So with only two musicians, these multi-instrumentalists can create a full band sound! Here is a band to host your night with warmth, humour and approachability - Their relaxed stage presence and friendly approach to calling puts everyone at their ease, ensuring a full dance floor for the night. And with a varied repertoire of songs and tunes, when everyone wants a breather from dancing, this band will keep your guests entertained for the whole night! Check out our wedding packages - choose one of our suggestions or design your own, from ceremony (including highland pipes), drinks reception, wedding breakfast, and of course your evening ceilidh, with the option of your own DIY disco.

Thank you both so much for an excellent fun ceilidh on Saturday. The music was superb and commented on by so many people, and really found helpful that you were able to guide us through so many of the dances! If ever I need to book a ceilidh band again (or anyone else i know) will be sure to recommend you.
