About Sheila's Reels

Ceilidh band
Sheila's Reels is a lively ceilidh band, available with 2, 3 or 4 musicians plus caller. A fun evening for all ages and abilities.

Playing individually and as a group for many years, we can cater for most occasions - English Barn Dance, Scottish Ceilidh, American evening, or our most popular mixed dance evening. Sheila is the caller and hails from Newcastle originally, also plays piano and sings. Helen is a stunning fiddle player, with a great style all her own . Chris is a master of the accordion and great at finding just the right tunes to fit the dances. Hannah is a versatile musician - she plays bass AND flute - and brings a sense of fun too. Richard - often playing bass - can be relied on to keep you in time - and to heckle the caller! With a wealth of experience, you are guaranteed a fun-packed evening suitable for all.
