If you’re considering having a Ceilidh, Barn Dance or Hoe Down as the evening entertainment for your Wedding or Civil Partnership, or even for your Stag or Hen party, then you’ve come to the right person! Fiona has been playing in her own Ceilidh and Barn Dance band for 40 years, and has arranged bands and callers for many thousands of weddings. She offers a friendly, efficient professional service based on her vast experience of offering Scottish, Irish, English and American style Barn Dance and Ceilidh Bands for all kinds of occasions.
There's no doubt that having a live Ceilidh or Barn Dance band come and play for your evening party is the best way to get all your family and friends mixing together and having fun. It really is the best ice-breaker ever! All ages and abilities can join in as the steps are easy and the Caller who comes with the band will walk you through the dances before the band is let loose on you. No previous dancing experience is required. Bands are very aware that guests at a wedding party may not have seen each other in years, and that you’ll want to chat to family and friends, so you’re not obliged to dance every single dance, but the more you join in, the more your guests will follow suit and fill the floor with dancers all night. Some people have a DJ or Ipod disco later on which works well too.
Whether you want a good all-round Barn Dance Band, or very traditional sounding Scottish Ceilidh Band, or an authentic sounding Irish Ceili band, or a good rompy English Ceilidh band, or even an American or Western style Hoe Down band for your wedding evening party, Fiona will offer the most suitable Band and Caller for you, taking into account your preferences and budget. The band and caller are usually available for about 3 hours, including a mid-way break for the band and for any refreshments to be served to your guests. They are self contained with PA system. Bands have PLI cover and equipment is PAT tested where necessary.
