Ceilidh Band Yorkshire - Scottish and Irish Ceilidh Bands
Live Ceili Bands For Hire - Perfect for a Wedding, Charity Ball, Conference, Private Party and Corporate Functions.


A Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) is a hugely enjoyable form of music and dancing, suitable for everyone, be they young or old. The music played by the Scottish and Irish Ceili bands creates one of the most inclusive forms of entertainment available. In other words, everyone gets involves and this intoxicating music is suitable for all ages. Anyone who can 'walk' can take part, and absolutely no previous experience is necessary. Our experienced ceilidh bands perform throughout Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Lancashire and Nottinghamshire. These bands are perfect for informal barn dance events, company parties, fundraising functions, private parties and of course, wedding celebrations. The live ceilidh bands we have for hire, consist of musicians playing specialist instruments (the type of instruments that creates attention because they are rarely seen at most events). There is also a caller. The role of the caller is to encourage everyone on to the dance floor and then to explain the dances. They also often walk you through the dances, but you're never expected to remember all of the moves....in fact it's usually better if you don't. That's one of the reasons why this for of entertainment is more informal that some others.

Below we have listed our selection of the Yorkshire and Lincolnshire based, experienced live ceilidh bands for hire for your event.
