Wedding Ceilidh,Barn Dance Bands in Gloucestershire,Glos


For wedding receptions in Gloucestershire (Glos),several of our ceilidh and barn dance bands will perform on a regular basis.These live ceilidh bands may be based within the county and there are also other bands who will quite happily travel within the county.

This part of England has always had a rich tradition in folk music and dance (with large parts of the county being based in the Cotswolds).The city of Gloucester itself has many experienced ceilidh bands within the area and all the major towns like Cheltenham,Stroud,Cirencester, Tewkesbury,Dursley are easily within range of a number of very good ceilidh and barn dance bands,as,indeed,are the smaller idyllic settings like those in Stow-on-the-Wold,Bourton-on-the Water,Tetbury and Nailsworth.The areas of the Forest of Dean,including towns like Cinderford and Coleford,are also within easy reach of a number of our bands,not only from Gloucestershire but South Wales area as well.

The bands are all very experienced in providing lively traditional music and dances suitable for both beginners and experienced dancers,including a caller for the event who can act as an MC throughout the night,perhaps injecting a bit of humour as well as explaining the moves,briefly,to all the guests.

Some of these bands are already listed on our website - for example.........

A Cheltenham based 3 piece Ceilidh and Barn Dance band + caller with music from all areas of the British Isles and a very good selection of Scottish music. Approx total fee £525-00. In addition,a fiddle can be added to their line-up,thus becoming 4 piece + caller in approx fee £650

Band Ref MW15- see http://www.jigsnreels.com/banddetail.php?ID=43 . This very talented 3 piece Ceilidh band + caller from the Malvern area often perform throughout Gloucestershire. Approx total fee £550-00.

For the smaller events,some of the bands may be willing perform as a 2 piece band + caller - an approx fee for such an event would be £400-00

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

Band Ref SP.....an excellent 3 piece Ceilidh band comprising fiddle,accordion and guitar + caller from the Bristol area.Really excellent musicians for lively dancing with a bit of a bias towards Celtic music. Approx total fee £600-00 (sound sample available upon request).This band can also call upon other fine musicians to augment the line-up - prices upon request

Band Ref BF3 - From South Wales and Glos,this compact trio Ceilidh and Barn Dance band including their caller/musician with an extensive repertoire dances regularly performs in the county - the band comprises a blistering fiddle,cittern/vocalist and melodeon/caller.Approx total fee £470-00. (Sound sample available upon request)

Of course,many others amongst the ceilidh and barn dance bands which we represent will gladly travel to Gloucestershire - check this out on 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 ! Just forward to us 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 Worcester and the whole of the Worcestershire area 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.
