The Jacobites
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"Fantastic! Band were so easy to work with from start to finish and were amazing on the night. We hired them for our small/medium sized wedding and despite not having a huge number of guests, they did a great job at keeping the dancefloor full! They were on time, professional and just great fun! Our guests raved about how brilliant they were and they really made our party amazing and special. "

The Jacobites

"My husband and I had the pleasure of having the Jacobites perform for our Scotland wedding at Killochan Castle, and let me tell you, they were unbelievably fantastic, fun, and talented. They got everyone up and dancing like crazy! They were kind and patient and took time to teach everyone how to Ceilidh dance (and yes, it took a while..) Their communication was quick and straightforward which allowed everything to flow seamlessly. I wish I could hire them to come and play in the states! Thank you all again for being such a fun addition to our big day! E&C"

"There aren't enough words or stars to do them justice! Amazing from booking to performance. Our wedding was such a success and a big part of that was the service provided by the Jacobites. Before they performed, we were chatting like friends and by the time it was over, we felt part of their family! Every single song was amazing and dancing was progressive to cater to our guests. We have had so many compliments about how amazing The Jacobites were- definitely the best in the business!"

FAQs about hiring Christmas Party Ceilidh Bands in Midlothian

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!
