We have performed at ceilidhs for many a year and have a wide repertoire of music from different countries . The biggest part is Scottish and Irish music but we can include some French Italian Israel or American styles if required.

Dave and Ann were amazing playing at my sister's Ceilidh. They were very professional and helped out calling the dances. I would definitely recommend them to anyone and would book them again in a heartbeat.
