One of the most popular, versatile, successful and affordable traditional ceilidh bands based in London, Wraggle Taggle Ceilidh Band perform live Irish, Scottish, English and American music, dance and songs throughout South East England. Truly traditional music, anything from a duo to a six-piece amplified or acoustic, with or without a caller. Please visit our website at https://www.wraggletaggle.com/ for more information.
We are flexible enough as regards personnel, instrumentation and musical style to be able to tailor a band to your specific requirements, and go out as anything from a duo to a six-piece, amplified or acoustic, with or without a caller. All bands are punctual, smart and sober, but still good fun!
Award winning musicians Carlene Anglim (fiddle), Eugene Teevan (accordion), and Mick O'Connor (tenor banjo) are joined by Mick Bailey (guitar/vocals) to form the "core" of the band. Other instruments such as concertina, accordion, flute, tin-whistle, Scottish or Irish bagpipes, bodhran (Irish drum) or traditional dancers are also available by arrangement (subject to availability & musical considerations).
Our most common format for a ceilidh consists of four musicians plus a caller who will teach the dances from scratch - no experience needed! A ceilidh is something really different and ideal for a successful party, as it is a fun way to get families, friends and colleagues to mix and meet and because all age groups become involved. The faster dances are an energetic work out, and we also play in a more relaxed romantic mood.
Wraggle Taggle play traditional Irish, Scottish, English and American songs and tunes with innovation, flair and vitality.
