The CS Barn Dance / Ceilidh Band

The CS Band is a lively barn dance band which plays for barn dances, ceilidhs, festivals, weddings and private functions.
The band specialises in the lively jigs, reels and hornpipes and the tuneful slow airs and waltzes which feature in the traditional music of Northumberland and the Borders.

For those who don’t know the dances, the band’s caller, will explain all the steps and encourage the cautious to join in and have a wonderful time.

The basis of the band’s great sound is the traditional blend of fiddle and accordion, supported by a rhythm section which, depending on availability or your requirements, it can include second accordion, piano, bass and drums.
Photo shows the larger size band and music samples are by the full band.

The band’s repertoire also includes many newly written additions to the Northumbrian tradition.


WeddingJust a quick note of thanks to you all for being so fantastic at our wedding. You set the evening off on exactly the right note, the band was superb and David did an exemplary job in ensuring a bunch of novices didn't trample each other to death."
Wedding"Thank you so much to The Band for the fantastic ceilidh you provided at our wedding at Chillingham Castle on January 7th, 2006. You were superb and the fact that even my 71-year-old German father joined in and had a whale of a time says it all.
PartyThank you so much for your wonderful contribution to the success of our party. You were fantastic! We all enjoyed ourselves enormously. The playing, the calling, the choice of dances, the pace and the MC-ing, were all excellent. You pitched it just right and many of our guests commented on the quality. Many thanks again.
