The MD Ceilidh / Barn Dance Band

The MD Ceilidh Band is one of the most popular and experienced ceilidh / barn dance bands in the country and is mentioned on the BBC Radio Folk Awards website as one of the high profile UK dance bands. The band have over two decades of experience in providing dance music for all kinds of function and will ensure that your special day runs smoothly and that everyone has a good time.

Unlike many "electric" ceilidh bands, the sound of the MD Ceilidh Band is more than just an acoustic folk band grafted onto a pub-rock rhythm section. The music has been developed as true fusion of the best of traditional and modern dance rhythms.

The MD Band presents a five-piece line-up including a separate caller, electric fiddle, electric guitar, bass guitar and drums. This line-up is most suitable for larger audiences (100+), especially if there are younger people present.

They can also offer a smaller, more acoustic, version of the band which consists of the front line; caller, fiddle, guitar and more ethnic hand percussion. This version of the band is more suitable for smaller, more intimate occasions, or where you would prefer a more traditional sound.



WeddingWe would like to say thank you so much for making our wedding reception so much fun! Everyone enjoyed it so very much. It has been great looking at the wedding photos, because everyone has such a big grin on their face!
Charity eventThank you for all of your hard work and patience in explaining the dances - I feel that people enjoy it most when they know what to do... and the band were brilliant. We had a lot of aching legs the next day (me included!) however the feedback that we got back was brilliant and many claimed it was our best 'surprise' yet.
WeddingJust a little note to say 'Thank you' for playing at our wedding. We had a fantastic day, and our guests loved the Ceilidh - many of them had never experienced one before, and your energy and enthusiasm has got them hooked!
