Verified profile
We get people up dancing together having fun - it's very inclusive!

The Burdocks have played together for many years in bands and sessions and this band was formed both out of friendship and a love for the music we play. We enjoy performing as a solo band, as well as for dances and ceilidh. We've been on the road for over 10 years now and we just love doing what we do. Every event is new and unknown, we never get complacent. The Burdocks have a core membership of six professional musicians, which is supplemented with our extended family of guest artists allowing us to be flexible, and available throughout the year. The eclectic European/Celtic sound of the band is derived from the diverse experiences of band members from classical/rock and jazz origins.

Having a ceilidh band brought the right amount of informality to my daughter's wedding day and the Burdock Ceilidh Band made sure that everyone, whether young or old, confident or shy, was able to join in the celebrations. The toe-tapping music was infectious and soon had us all dancing. The caller made sure that everything was light-hearted and fun. A wonderful musical event that greatly enhanced the day.

The band that brought everyone together: Having the band out on the lawn on a summer evening orchestrating the dancing brought everyone together, the musicians were fantastic and Dan put everyone at ease, was humorous, charismatic and was the driving force to a great fun and friendly atmosphere. A great icebreaker and really memorable. All of our guests young and old said how much they enjoyed it, from the very young to the more mature. They fulfilled everything that we hoped for.
