About The Flying Dishrags

Ceilidh band
Southampton
Lively new Hampshire based ceilidh band, playing innovative arrangements of English and Scottish folk music for a unique ceilidh experience.

We are The Flying Dishrags, a Hampshire based four piece ceilidh band. Featuring a flexible instrumental lineup, we bring our own energetic, innovative style to folk music and dance, making for a unique ceilidh experience! The four of us started playing together in 2014, with the University of Southampton Folk Society. Over the last two years we have played in countless sessions and ceilidhs with the society, learning new tunes together and arranging sets in original ways. Now playing as a standalone band, we continue to build on that background, creating more personalised sets and arrangements, and making each performance unique! We specialise in private functions such as weddings and birthday parties, but we also perform publicly. Alongside the band, we also provide a caller with your booking. Contact us if you would like to book us for your event and we will send you a quote.
