The Arran Ceilidh Band is a new lineup of good friends. We’ve been playing together for years in Arran’s pubs and Folk Festivals, so we’ve finally decided to combine our experience to create a band, which fully represents the tradition of the original Celtic ceilidh. To that end, we are not a “typical” ceilidh band, as our lineup of fiddle, whistles / pipes, clarsach, guitar and bodhrán will attest!
The result is a fresh mix of songs and tunes, rich in harmony and musical arrangement, blended with stories of old and dancing: both social ceilidh and Cape Breton-style step dancing – all wrapped up in a highly entertaining programme!
The Arran Ceilidh Band provides a complete entertainment package for weddings and other private functions. We work with clients and the venue to fine-tune our programme to ensure the music dove-tails smoothly into the day’s procedings, with everything set up and sound-checked before the event starts. We provide lighting for atmosphere and can run a disco to finish off the evening, after the final songs and ceilidh dances, as required.
