  • They got the party started from the very first moment and that joyful atmosphere lasted all day! The band responded to our query quickly and really helped us understand what would best suit our day – they were easily contactable and incredibly helpful when we had questions during the planning stages.Alice, Wedding

What is a ceilidh?
A ceilidh (or barn dance) is a fun, energetic social folk dance comprising English, Irish, Scottish and Celtic music, that is perfect for weddings, parties, fundraising and other special occasions. With a team of top musicians, you’ll have an event to really remember. You don’t need any prior experience – our expert caller will run you through all the moves before the dance starts and then continue to remind you what to do once the dance has started!.
Are you available for my wedding / club / event / festival?
Certainly! Top Ceilidh Band is now booking for weddings, festivals (and many other types of event) nationwide. Our experienced, professional musicians never fail to delight, and beforehand we will simplify the booking process for you by explaining the range of available options and how everything will work on the day, for maximum peace of mind!
What is the typical format at a ceilidh?
Total dancing time is typically between 2 to 3 hours, usually with a break for refreshments halfway through. However, we’ll chat through your requirements at the time of booking and cater the music exactly to your event. The band will play tunes at the start of the evening to get your guests in the mood for dancing and their feet tapping!
How big is the band?
A typical line-up is 3 musicians and a caller, with fiddle, guitar and an accordion.
Can I request specific dances?
No problem! We’ll tailor the dances to the event in terms of difficulty and regional variation. Oft-requested dances include Strip The Willow and The Dashing White Sergeant.
Does the band provide a PA system?
Yes, we’ll bring our own PA system to amplify the musicians and caller. We can also arrange an early set-up, should you wish to use a microphone for speeches. The band is covered by current public liability insurance and all equipment is PAT tested for electrical safety.
Do you have a disco/DJ package?
We would be very happy to recommend a competitively priced, high quality DJ/disco package from the list of suppliers we’ve enjoyed working with. Please contact us for a quote.
