Guy performs with Cat's Claw, arguably South Wales' hardest working and liveliest ceilidh band

Cat’s Claw are arguably South Wales’ hardest-working ceilidh band. An energetic and professional unit with over 20 years’ experience, their unique mix of well-known and more unusual tunes and dances brings new excitement to the ceilidh experience. If you want a foot-stomping, roof-raising, rollicking good time, look no further-acoustic instruments creating an electric atmosphere!

We really enjoyed having them play at our wedding. As musicians ourselves, we were very impressed with their playing.

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all the band, and of course your caller. We absolutely loved hearing you all play again and it was wonderful seeing all of our friends and family enjoying the dancing and music. It is something we will never forget.  We’re sorry that we weren’t running to time on the day, but thank you for being so understanding and I hope you all managed to enjoy some cake and cheese whilst you were waiting to set up.  We will be keeping an eye out for any future dates in your diary and coming along to another ceilidh, think we’ve got the bug! Please pass on our thanks to band, you all helped to make the day very special.

Thanks for providing the stimulus for a lively evening. I’ve had loads of very positive feedback. The music, as expected, was first class and the calling got people dancing. Arranging your participation couldn’t have been easier. You clearly knew what you needed, what you were doing and what the event required. Feedback from you meant I had no worries before, during or after the event… a great band. Thanks Guy and Cats Claw for a lively evening. What better way to bring people together?

I call with Guy's ceilidh band "Cat's Claw". The best ceilidh band in South Wales.
