Public liability insurance of £0 million

Currently in a ceilidh band, Lost Shores Ceilidh Band, formed by three young Fifers with a passion for traditional Scottish music, are a fresh and exciting Fife band who enjoy a good ceilidh. Play in a couple of pit bands and have plenty experience within the industry!! Cheers, Kyle! The band’s energetic style fuses traditional ceilidh tunes with some exciting modern twists which, combined with the lively ceilidh atmosphere, make for an enjoyable evening of music and dance. The accordion’s melodies bring life to the dance floor, with the strong rhythmic pulse of the drums and guitar driving on the dancing, completing the trio's distinctive sound Give me a shout, I can play to all sorts of genres!

Kyle's Reviews

From customers:

What a fantastic group... Professional, musical and entertaining! We recently hired them for a family ceilidh at our Church and it was a brilliant evening, the music was great and everyone had a great night. The one thing people were saying afterwards... wow, that band!

We asked the band to play a Charity Ceilidh for us. The guys took it in their stride and played an absolute blinder. The dance floor was full all night. A really talent and confident trio and I can’t recommend them highly enough. A big shout out to Gary too, working behind the scenes organising things, really easy to work with. I look forward to working with you all again.
