About Over the Moon

Ceilidh band

We are a traditional Irish folk band comprising violin, whistle/flute and guitar . We play for ceilidhs and also music for listening.

We have been playing Irish folk for over 10 years in various bands in the Sheffield area. Melanie and Oli teach violin and flute lessons and Jim is an accomplished guitar player in the celtic DADGAD tuning. All tunes played are from the traditional repertoire and are played from memory with great verve and finesse.

They were absolutely brilliant--created a really lovely atmosphere and were totally relaxed and professional. Only sorry we were too busy rushing around to talk to them more! Really lovely music, highly recommended.

I just wanted to say thanks so, so much for the ceilidh at my 50th last month. Everyone agree it was the best night they’ve had in a long time. It was great how the caller got everyone up and dancing - from out youngest family member (aged 4) through to my aunt who is in her 70s. What a treat to have live music and a warm, friendly caller. I think we’ve all just about got our breath back from the dancing (and laughing).

Several of us were new to ceilidhs but the combination of fantastic music and rhythm, and enthusiastic calling got us on our feet for the best night. I can’t recommend them enough - they will make your party swing.
