About The Cloth Cat Ceilidh Band

Ceilidh band
Public liability insurance of £1 million
Verified profile
A lively and professional folk and ceilidh band based in Leeds, who donate a percentage of their earnings to charity.

The Cloth Cat Ceilidh Band are here to give your wedding, party or corporate event a drop of the old Celtic charm, and part of their fee will be donated to a Leeds-based charity! Playing traditional Irish, Scottish and English songs and tunes, as well as popular folk/pop songs throughout the decades, the band can cater to a wide range of events and tastes, from the very traditional to the more relaxed folk-pop vibes of more recent times. Formed by three professional musicians from Leeds, the boys have played at weddings, charity fundraisers and private parties to riotous merriment and applause. Robin, Barney and Alex are the core musicians of the band, but they frequently will work with other musicians, depending on the gig, to ensure your event has the right feel and energy.

Excellent choice to make my party special. Nice friendly band, amazing music and clear instructions from the caller, although people still get ina tangle which adds to the fun and laughter. Caller kindly held my granddaughter up so she could make an arch with me. Thank you
