Wedding Ceilidh,Barn Dance Bands in Bristol, Bath


For Wedding Receptions in the Avon, Bristol and Bath areas we have quite a number of  ceilidh and barn dance bands who regularly perform for such functions.

These bands have, of course, become very experienced in providing traditional music, allied to dances suitable to both the beginner and the experienced dancers. The bands will all have a caller for the event who is also able to act as an MC throughout the night as well as 'showing the ropes' to dancers.

Some of these bands are already listed on our website - for example.........(or go BACK to Homepage www.jigsnreels.com  for more options)

Band Ref AV01 - see http://www.jigsnreels.com/banddetail.php?ID=126 . Minimum 4 piece barn dance band + caller.  Approx total fee £550-00

Band Ref AV02 - see http://www.jigsnreels.com/banddetail.php?ID=42 . 3 piece ceilidh band + caller.  Approx total fee £500-00. They can also extend the line-up to feature a fiddle, charging an approx total fee £625

Band Ref WA01- see http://www.jigsnreels.com/banddetail.php?ID=49. Minimum 4 piece ceilidh band + caller from nearby South Wales.  Approx total fee £650-00.

Band Ref WA03 - see http://www.jigsnreels.com/banddetail.php?ID=63 . Another 4 piece ceilidh band from South Wales.  Approx total fee £550-00

Band Ref BF - see http://www.jigsnreels.com/banddetail.php?ID=138 - a blistering trio (fiddle, melodeon and mandocello) with one of the musicians also acting as caller.  Approx total fee £480-00.

Some other bands do not currently feature on our website - this may be because there are currently no sound samples or pics available. For example...................

Band Ref SP.....a rivetting 3 piece ceilidh band from Bristol comprising fiddle, accordion and guitar + caller. Really excellent musicians for dancing as well as concert performance (with a bit of a bias towards Celtic music) who also happen to have an extensive repertoire of Scottish dance music. Approx total fee £650-00 (sound sample available upon request)

Band Ref LPc - again,from the Bristol area. This is a 4 piece Ceilidh band + caller with an extensive repertoire of Scottish music and dance. Their resident  'in-house' caller can take dancers through all the popular Scottish dances up to the Eightsome Reel level (and beyond, if necessary). But they are equally at home playing music from all corners of the British Isles.  Approx total fee £575-00.

Of course, many others amongst  the ceilidh and barn dance bands which we represent will gladly travel to the Avon, Bristol and Bath and Wiltshire areas - you can get the broader picture by going to our database. Just follow the link http://www.jigsnreels.com/search2.php and see just how many other bands are available to you. And don't forget..... our database is not totally extensive!  As you can see, there are other bands not even yet listed!  Never be afraid to forward a general enquiry without specifying any particular band - it's almost certain that we are in contact with just the right ceilidh or barn dance band that would suit your particular wedding reception.

Finally, for your Wedding day, you can also book other types of artists (through this website) like Classical musicians, Jazz and Cover bands in Avon, Bristol, Bath or Somerset or Wiltshire areas by clicking on http://www.jigsnreels.com/pagedetail.php?ID=19 .This new page will lead you to the link-up that we have with our partners. We do not specialise in providing such artists - BUT OUR PARTNERS DO ! 

For instance, you may wish to find a suitable Classical Quartet to perform earlier during the day. Naturally, should you wish to book another of these artists we can arrange this for you as part of one overall package - this means that we can undertake to 'dove-tail' the whole package of musical services so that you are not dealing with loads of different artists - meaning that all confirmations and paperwork can stay under the one, simple account. Alternatively, you may prefer to deal directly with our partners in their specialist field. The choice is, of course, yours entirely.
