Chris and his colleagues played an excellent outdoor set at our wedding and encouraged our guests, including many who had never been to a ceilidh to participate. The music was great and the calling was perfect - detailed enough without preventing enjoyment of the dances. We would not hesitate to recommend them for a ceilidh at a wedding.

Terrific, lovely group of people, they really made the party happen ! They managed to get people dancing and singing.... who hadn't done for years ! will definitely re-book when we have another event and recommend to all our friends, most of whom were there for the party and are already big fans.
