Reviews

  • “……….I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your band for last night. You were fantastic, we couldn’t have asked for better. You got everyone up dancing and it was amazing sight to see so many International students and staff in national dress, dancing to your music and having such a good time.  A lot of people told me how much they had enjoyed your band and said you did a fabulous job calling and with great humour. Thanks again, it was a pleasure to have you ceilidh band for our event"

About

Add an accordion player to any of the elite bands to turn that band into a ceilidh band! This allows up to 1 hour of live ceilidh on an evening. We have a range of excellent accordion players we work with however our most regularly used player is Scotland Leslie. He is fantastic and like all our players, he will teach and call all the dances to ensure everyone has a great experience with the ceilidh session of the night! 

 

Solo Accordion Q&A

  • How long do they play for? – The ceilidh normally lasts around 1 hour
  • What time would you they arrive to set up? – The accordionist would arrive to set-up at the same time as the wedding band.
  • Will they learn a piece of music if requested? – Yes, if you supply the name of the tune or provide the sheet music at least one month prior to the function date, the accordionist will learn it to play the tune during the ceilidh
  • Can we choose what dances they play? - See the attached list of dances,  if your favourite dance is not there they will do their best to learn it for the ceilidh 
  • Can we hear the accordionist live before our wedding/event? - You can hear the accordionist by coming to one of our showcase gigs and say hi! It’s always good to meet brides, grooms and clients before the event.
  • Do they give dance instructions? – Yes, the accordionist can call all the dances.
  • Do they have their your own PA? – Yes but normally the accordionist will plug into the bands PA system.
  • Do the wedding bands join in the ceilidh? – Almost all the bands will join the accordionist for the ceilidh set.
