Looking for a great ceilidh band ....
Discover what our customers say before you book!!

"There's Ceilidh Bands .... and there's Scotland's Ceilidh Band!"

Unless you book a ceilidh band that comes 'recommended', you'll be searching in the dark. Are the players experienced? Have they come together in the last few weeks? Or have they played together for years? How professional is the 'caller'? Will your guests be left to guess the steps? Will the dance floor be brimming with noise, excitement and energy? Will your special night be at best a non-event? Or worse still, will it be remembered in years to come as having shared the same characteristics as the proverbial 'damp squib'?


We'll give you top entertainment, a great party atmosphere and much more ......

A Scottish dance group is only as good as its leader and its players. Tony & Donald, the organisers of Scotland's Ceilidh Band, come with a 20-year track record in the Scottish traditional music scene. Few other organisers can provide this depth of expertise and insider-knowledge on how to deliver a memorable performance along with a great party atmosphere.


"We had a fantastic ceilidh. Not only was the music perfect but your excellent dance calling ensured that no one was too intimidated to have a go. Those who had never been to a ceilidh before, (and there were several), and those who had been to many - all had a wonderful evening. We're sure were all a few pounds lighter by the end of the night. Thanks a million!"

Fiona & Neil Kendall, Wedding Ceilidh
(Grosvenor Hotel, Edinburgh, 1st September)



"Just wanted to thank you and the rest of your band for playing at our wedding. Even though hardly any of us could actually dance it was good fun! Everyone says how they enjoyed themselves and thank you for your great CD's - much appreciated!
Here's a few photo's of our special day."

"Thank again and all the best for the future!"

(20th March 2010 at Pittodrie, Aberdeenshire)

"Anyone who hasn't been ceilidh dancing before will be able to dance by the time they leave. The best comments we had at our wedding were from our English guests - they absolutely raved about you from start to finish."

Gus & Lorraine McLean, Southend on Sea, (Wedding Ceilidh)




  " Thank you so much for your fantastic performance and fun we had at our wedding at Sandgreen last Saturday. I really cannot describe in words how much we loved it, and we really didn't want the night to end! It was great to see all of our guests joining in and enjoying it as much as we did! They have been raving about it ever since, and all our single friends are now planning their weddings to be just like ours! The celidh was so much fun, and great entertainment, and there was not a hint of 'cheesy yuck'!"

Philipa Graham, Wedding, Sandgreen, May '09

"This really is something that we will always remember about our wedding day; it brought our guests together and made the day go with a real (helicopter) swing." 
"I hope that our paths cross again in the future, and that you continue to do what you do for a long time to come."
Kind regards,
Philippa (Williams) Graham
PS - Please could you send me one of your CDs so that we can re-live the dances? Thank you!

Jeffreys, Glasgow
