The Ceilidh was the most popular part of our night, the calling was professional and fun (managing to get everyone up!) while the band were effortlessly talented. I don’t think you could find a better band.

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Our standard line-up is as follows: Caller Fiddle x2 Guitar Percussion We can scale up or down appropriately to include full backline of bass and drums for larger events, or smaller events might benefit from the clarity of 4 performers.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

We're more than happy to put together and play a playlist to help fill the gaps between sets during the event. Alternately, you're always welcome to plug your iPod/phone straight into our PA if someone has something special planned... We'll provide all cables and equipment for this so you don't need to worry about a thing!

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance! If the ceilidh is later on in the event then we can work out exact timings in the run up to avoid getting in the way of guests.

Do you provide a caller?

Yes, this is a standard part of our lineup as our caller knows our band and setup intimately. If you'd rather us not include a caller then please communicate this as early as possible.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA) included in your quote?

Our PA is included in your quote.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Absolutely! This is a wonderful way to make your event more personal. We are also able to do a lot of less well-known dances so if you have any specific requests then do let us know.
