Jiggered Ceilidh Band
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"Jiggered were absolutely incredible at our wedding at Neidpath Castle in June. With a very diverse mix of people, most of whom had never even heard of Ceilidh before, the band made it seem like the room were experts (after a wee bit of encouragement)! We had the most fantastic time and all of our guests absolutely LOVED it. A special thanks as well to the band who with only a couple weeks notice learned our first dance song and played it perfectly. We couldn't ask for anything more from Jiggered. We had a packed danc efloor all night with huge smiles all round. 🕺💃 Absolutely recommended if you want an epic night! Thanks so much to Chris & Crew!"

"Brilliant experience at our corporate event. The band was extremely professional, had great sound, responded to any requests and created fun atmosphere. For many of the attendees this was their first Ceilidh ever and Jonny was great at guiding everyone through the dances. There was also superb communication prior to the event, which put us at ease and made planning the event much easier. I can only recommend, if we will have any other event with Ceilidh coming up, we will reach out to Stringception again."

What is a ceilidh band?

A ceilidh band (pronounced ‘kay-lee’) is a group of musicians that specialise in traditional folk music for ceilidh dances (usually jigs). Ceilidh bands will usually have fiddle players, accordionists, bagpipers playing and a “caller” leading the dances.

What do people do at a ceilidh?

Ceilidhs comes from the Gaelic word for ‘party’ and typically feature a ceilidh band with a caller who will lead the guests in traditional folk Scottish (or Irish) dances. Ceilidh’s are a great way to entertain your guests because they offer an interactive experience where the guests are part of the performances and the dances are simple enough for all ages and abilities, meaning everyone can get involved.

How long do ceilidh dances last?

A traditional Ceilidh dance can last anywhere from 2 to 3 hours, usually broken down with 3-4 dances and then a break. Our Ceilidh bands, however, are flexible and can play for as short or as long as you need.

What instruments are used in a ceilidh band?

Ceilidh bands commonly feature traditional folk instruments. Some common instruments you will find in a Ceilidh band include the fiddle, the accordion, bagpipes, the flute and a banjo. Each Ceilidh band’s lineup will feature different musicians and some bands will feature drums or percussion instruments, such as bodhrán (traditional Irish drum), or guitars.
