Description

If you specifically want an authentic Scottish ceilidh (like you would find in Scotland,then please read a little more about this very experienced 3 piece band- comprising an outstanding midi accordion,fiddle,guitar - based in the Surrey area who will gladly travel within an approx 45 minutes of Guildford area (though prefer to avoid Central London)

Typical dances performed by the band at a Scottish ceilidh are the Gay Gordons, Dashing White Sergeant, Strip The Willow, Scottish Welcome, Canadian Barn Dance, Military Two Step, Virginia Reel, Cumberland Reel, St Bernard's Waltz, and many more. They are all fairly straightforward and good fun to do. Each dance is explained at the outset by the caller, who will judge the mix of skills on the night, and tailor the initial instructions, and guidance once started, to suit - so no previous experience necessary.

Occasionally clients ask at ceilidhs for more complicated Scottish Reels. If especially requested, the band are happy to call and play for the Eightsome Reel. However, for other Reels - Reel of the 51st Division, Hamilton House, Duke of Perth or Mairi's Wedding – they will provide the music and, if needed, a walk-through as a refresher for those who have danced them before, but would not undertake to teach them from scratch since these are relatively more complicated dances,especially for dancers with little experience.
