The Band

 

   We play traditional English, Irish and Scottish folk music with a touch of East Europe to spice things up occasionally.  We know each event is special to you, and that makes it special for us too. There's no party that's been able to resist our joyful, infectious music . . . .

 

   A ceilidh (rhymes with 'Daily') is another name for a barn dance, a highland fling or a country/folk dance.

Whatever you call it, it is a great way to bring people together of all generations, all nationalities and all abilities. It is simply one big party!

The Sound

 

   How do we do it?  We have a top class PA system as you may expect of an established dance band with many years experience, but there's no substitute for skill when it comes to playing for dance.  A ceilidh needs musicians who can play with precision and also react to the dancers to create a great atmosphere and a truly memorable event.

 

Please listen to our live recordings and take a look at our videos (media) and read the testimonials that will assure you of a great ceilidh band for your wedding, party, or other event. Better still come along to one of our public barn dances  in Devon.

 

The Caller

 

   The caller is a most important ingredient in a successful ceilidh. Our caller will organise "sets" of people who dance together so you don't have to worry about not having a dancing partner either. Everybody can join in the fun.

 

 We only work with the best caller in Devon and one of the very best in the South West is Chris Jewell.  Being steeped in folk music and dance ever since he can remember, Chris has the full range of dances for any occasion and is a great musician on melodeon or fiddle to add an extra dimension to our music .

 

 A good caller like Chris will choose appropriate dances, he will guide you through the steps and moves efficiently yet concisely (the 'walk-through' )  then when the band strikes up he will be alert to the dancers needs, prompting only as often as needed the next figure with impeccable timing and humour.
