Beer For Breakfast.
Brilliant Ceilidh Band for All Events.


The Beer For Breakfast band are experts at performing the music for a Ceilidh. Their lively infectious music is perfect for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, folk festivals, PTA's, corporate events and for any other reason you wish, from very large events to very small gatherings. Playing as a five piece Ceilidh band, they use one of three excellent callers, Michael, Francis or Bill, to give your Ceilidh an Irish, Scottish or English flavour- depending on what you want! The callers are all very experienced and are there to make your event very enjoyable and for you to have FUN.
A Ceilidh (pronounced ‘kay- lee’) is a gathering for music and dance and is one of the best ways to ensure that the people at your event meet each other in a FUN atmosphere. Any one who can walk can take part and no previous experience is necessary. Ceilidh dancing can involve large or small groups of people and is pretty easy to pick up. The dances are pattern dances and may be done in lines, squares and circles and many are progressive which means that couples change partners regularly during the dance. A Ceilidh is particularly suitable for groups of mixed ages and tastes and Beer For Breakfast are absolute masters of their craft. Their experienced ‘caller’ will instruct you in each dance before you do it, ‘call’ the steps and supervise the dance once it starts. They even ‘walk you through’ the dances. Getting the steps absolutely right is neither expected nor demanded, in fact the object is to have FUN and lots of it!
