London Ceilidh

The group met at the KCL University folk society (which one of the band members actual established), and instantly something clicked. They were in tune musically and creatively, and loved playing with each other. As they were leaving university, the group began to play for private events, initially for charities and friends, but soon started receiving private enquiries, and the band was born! All the band are keen Ceilidh attendees, so they know what makes a good event, and what makes a great one!

Reviews

 
What an awesome night of fun! The band, they kept us on our toes all evening, and even when people were tired, nobody wanted to stop dancing! Their caller was very good at explaining the steps clearly and it meant even those of us with two left feet could have a really enjoyable time! Don’t know which band to book? Don’t panic, book this band!

5/5

The band were brilliant – both fun and engaging all evening! They were easy to work with and we couldn’t recommend them highly enough!
