Stroma Folk & Ceilidh
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"Stroma Folk & Ceilidh were brilliant. Excellent musicians and the caller was fantastic - everyone at our party had a great time. So much so that my sister immediately wanted their details for another party next year! Can thoroughly recommend - they were punctual, professional and also obliging when we ended up running slightly behind schedule. "

Swing The Bridge
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"I cannot recommend Swing the Bridge highly enough. Their quote was very competitive and they provided 5 musicians (others only provided 2 or 3) so it was a great sound. Communication in advance was great and they arrived with bags of time to set up. As to the ceilidh, everyone from age 2yrs to 98 yrs thought it was fantastic, either joining in or watching. Confirmed non-dancers were up on the floor and loving it! So much fun. If you are thinking about something for an event then book Swing the Bridge and you wont be disappointed!"

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.
