Grahame hired Tartan Trio Ceilidh Band for a Wedding (available in Crewe)

“Triple Scotch Ceilidh band were brilliant! Most people at our wedding were completely new to ceilidh dancing and the calling was clear and patient all night. The ceilidh music was amazing and they switched to a disco later on in the evening for us. We had an amazing evening and would highly recommend them!!”

Zoe hired Triple Scotch Ceilidh Band for a Wedding (available in Crewe)

“Triple Scotch are a truly fantastic band. Ahead of our wedding, while it could sometimes take a little while to get responses, information was always conveyed very clearly and Olly was excellent at understanding what we required. The band were very flexible and able to perform all the songs requested. There was excellent attention to detail and very clear pride in their work. We had the full day package – ceremony / reception / evening ceilidh / disco – and can wholeheartedly recommend this. They played the songs we selected for our ceremony really beautifully, and they helped create a lovely relaxed atmosphere in our drinks reception. They were punctual, exemplary in appearance and manner, and really polite and warm throughout the day. They were also completely confident setting up and moving equipment for different parts of the day, comfortably liaising with the venue. For weddings/big events when there is so much going on, this confident professionalism that comes from their extensive experience is a real plus. The ceilidh was excellent – each dance was clearly explained by Olly with a good dose of humour. We have had so many people compliment the music. Hardly anybody at our wedding had taken part in a ceilidh before and everybody found it to be great fun – it was such a highlight of the evening. The energy and enthusiasm was infectious. The disco until midnight was a lovely way of finishing everything off – there were people on the dancefloor throughout the night, and the choice of songs and the lighting equipment used were very effective. They went above and beyond, and we are both very happy that we chose them for our big day.”

FAQs about hiring Christmas Party Ceilidh Bands in Crewe

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

What kind of ceilidh bands are there?

There are basically two types of ceilidh band: traditional instrumental bands, and ceilidh cover bands. A traditional ceilidh band will perform Scottish folk tunes without a singer. Importantly, a traditional band will include a caller: they'll announce the dances, shout instructions to beginners, and get everyone involved in the revelry! In contrast, a ceilidh cover band will mix the folk tunes with modern pop covers. They'll have a singer, and provide a wide range of music for all to enjoy: young and old.

Which parts of an event or wedding will the ceilidh band play at?

In the spirit of leaving the best until last, the ceilidh band will usually wrap up celebrations, providing an exciting musical finale for your special day. The band caller will ensure you and your guests know the moves for each dance, giving everyone the opportunity to get involved. Plus, if you haven't had the chance to say hello to everyone during the course of the day, you might just find yourself dancing with them before it's over! Ceilidh dances can be pretty tiring, so having it at the end of the day is a smart choice - your guests will certainly thank you for it!

Will I need to provide the ceilidh band with any equipment?

Professional ceilidh bands come fully kitted-out with all the equipment needed to get the dancing underway, including amplification and a mixing desk. If your wedding venue is regularly used for live music, they will likely have a dedicated in-house PA sound system - in this case, the band may not need to bring their own amplification.

How much space will I need for ceilidh dancing?

The more space, the better! Ceilidh dancing takes up a lot more room on the dance floor than your typical disco. Other than that: make sure table are removed (encourages dancing!), seats are available to the side, and there are no obstacles near the dance floor. Broken bones ain't craic.

Do traditional ceilidh bands take requests?

Not usually. Unless you have a specific Scottish or Irish tune in mind, the band will normally play a pre-planned set, designed to perfection and gleaned from years of experience. If you have a special song in mind, make sure you tell the band well in advance. It might just get added to their repertoire!
