CEILIDH & BARN DANCE BANDS
So what is Ceilidh? It’s a traditional Scottish or Irish social gathering of people but today it involves the playing of Gaelic folk music and the enjoyment of dancing. It can involve Scottish country dancing, however the steps and ways of dancing will change from song to song. The music played will be by an assortment of instruments: flute, fiddle, accordion, tin whistle, drums, guitar, mandolin, whatever is played it’s lively and cheerful.
It’s similar to the barn dances you may have heard of or attended as a child where everyone has a great time whether they know the steps or not. It’s a get-together where you can let your hair down and dance round the room with a few basic steps to remember, moving from partner to partner. If you’ve never tried it, you should. It’s great fun and excellent to get people up and on their feet.
The best thing is that it’s suitable for all ages so is ideal for any family event where children will be present, corporate event to get your staff mixing and of course a wedding to get your guests-a-mingling.
I just wanted to say that both the Fruitcake band and the DJ you provided for our wedding were fantastic! The band were great, the lady caller was wonderful in organising – getting people on the floor, explaining & doing the dances. Thank you.
