Full Description
We are a semi-acoustic Celtic band playing folk music supporting social dances from across the planet. Ceilidh is our speciality, which means we aim to get everybody involved, up and dancing, if possible. It works perfectly for weddings, and ensures mingling of guests like no other entertainment does. There's nothing too challenging in the dancing - we're more interested in seeing people having fun together. Our expert caller will walk through each dance to ensure that guests have some inkling of what to do, but we don't expect people to get it perfect - it's the taking part that matters!

Personal Message from the Manager

FAQ
(6)

What is your most memorable wedding?

Oh, so many! For me, the best weddings are when we manage to get every single one of your guests up to dance together and there's not a person left out.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Fun, inclusive, gender fluid, emotional, laughter

What about your business are you most proud of?

The fact that all ages, all guests can get something out of our entertainment.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

We like it when a couple have made the venue their own, with little touches.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Once you've submitted the online booking form, we'll confirm everything with you by email. Then, we contact you around 14 days before your event to finalise timings and other details. On the actual day, our caller will make themselves known to you (or your representative) and check all is going to plan - we can be reasonably flexible on the night.

What is your number one floor-filler?
