We really enjoyed the band. They brought a happy energy to the evening and made everyone feel able to join in with the ceilidh. The band leader (not Miles), arrived in good time and was clear about the last minute change of musicians. He and the band did a great job. Our only niggle is over some of the dances. They were not all ‘main stream Scottish ceilidh’; American Barn dance & Flying Scotsman? Also the shortened version of the Strip the willow was a bit disappointing. We understand that the band had to manage a mixed and full crowd and space was limited. We really appreciated the band doing an accompaniment to a song at the end and the final piping for the cake. Overall 5 stars for fun, great energy, clear dance calling and going with the flow of the evening. Thanks Katherine and George
