About The Rowan Leslie Band

Ceilidh band
Irish fiddle player Rowan Leslie, currently based in Glasgow, with exciting line up of instruments depending on what is required.

Based in Glasgow, The Rowan Leslie Band has travelled all over Scotland, Ireland and England providing beautiful and uplifting traditional dance music for all types of parties, including weddings, birthdays and charity events. With a strong and patient caller, everybody is included and encouraged to dance in the ceilidhs, and the toe-tapping music itself makes it impossible for the party-goers to stay in their seats. Alternatively, if the event only requires great traditional music rather than a ceilidh, we have a huge repertoire and can keep any crowd entertained with reels, jigs, hornpipes, waltzes, polkas and airs. The standard line up is a trio consisting of three professional musicians: a fiddler, a bagpiper/flute, and guitarist, with the piper doubling up as the caller for the dances. The band can be expanded to a 4 or 5 piece on request, which usually means the addition of a drummer or another tune player such as accordion. The price given for each event includes us bringing our own PA system, and lights can also be brought on request. We often DJ between ceilidh dances and afterwards for a disco, and if you would like this service as well please let us know.

We were delighted with the Rowan Leslie Band who we hired for my husbands 60th birthday, and the guests loved the music. They were head and shoulders above other ceilidh bands I have heard in terms of their musicianship, and their caller was very patient with our limited dancing experience. Having such talented musicians turned a good evening into a great evening. They were also helpful, prompt and personable and I would not hesitate in recommending them.
