Ceilidhs, or Barn Dances, are friendly, informal and fun. A great way to make new friends! You don't need to know what to do - our caller will explain the dances and bring everyone on to the floor to participate in the merrymaking.
Nottinghamshire/Lincolnshire based lambskinnet Ceilidh Band has provided high quality entertainment for many years. If you want something special for your wedding, birthday, anniversary, corporate event or fundraiser then look no further. The band has a wealth of experience and an excellent reputation. They are passionate about their music and just love to see people dancing and having a good time to their wide repetoire of tunes.
The band play a range of lively, foot-tapping English, Scottish and Irish reels, hornpipes, jigs, polkas, waltzes and slip-jigs and are fronted by their experienced caller. The caller encourages even reluctant dancers on to the floor. He chooses dances to suit the mood and experience of the dancers. He gives complete and clear instructions to all making sure everyone knows what to do.
The number of musicians in the band will vary between 4 and 8, depending on the requirements of the occasion - the size of the band may vary but not the quality! For smaller occasions the band will entertain between dances by playing a wide variety of folk tunes while everyone gets their breath back or heads for the bar. The full line-up is; Fiddle(s), Melodeon, Concertina, Mandolin, Guitar(s), Keyboard and Percussion... plus other featured instruments such as the Hurdy Gurdy, Harmonica and Whistles.
It's just a great night out!!
