We are experienced in providing music for weddings, Burns nights, parties and ceilidhs. We have played in church halls, school halls, hotels, marquees and in the Brighton Corn Exchange!
A standard ceilidh programme would include the following dances:
Gay Gordons, Scotch Mixer, The Flying Scotsman, Cumberland Reel, Dashing White Sergeant, Virginia Reel, Canadian Barndance, St. Bernard’s Waltz, Strip the Willow and the Eightsome Reel.
We can also provide background music with a Scottish flavour.
We work with several callers, all of whom are Scottish dance teachers who can choose and teach dances suitable for all levels of ability.
We also play for historical ceilidh dancing for weddings and other events. Led by Diana Campbell, we can provide a session of easy Regency dances, incorporating couple dances, round the room dances, easy cotillions and dances for both longwise and three couple sets. We dress in Regency costume and Diana often provides information about the etiquette and social context.
Our band equipment is PAT (electrical safety) tested and we have Public Liability insurance through affiliation with the EFDSS (English Folk Dance and Song Society).
