The DF Ceilidh Duo

The DF Ceilidh Band are undoubtedly one of the most versatile ensembles on our roster. If you choose to book them, you're in for a real treat. Despite only being two musicians, they offer an impressive list of instruments - fiddle, pipes, guitar, cajon, vocals, flute, saxophone - plus ceilidh calling too.

Loosely based on an all Scottish Ceilidh Band, they can also include English, Irish, American, Klezmer Scandinavian, Eastern European and French. They use loops to build up a full band sound, offering a broad repertoire of dances and music. Their infectious style and energetic performance suits all occasions, from weddings and festivals to corporate events and birthday parties.

The great thing about the ceilidh is that it gets everyone, young and old, shy or confident up on the dance floor! Don't worry if you don't know the dance steps - the job of the band's caller is to show you how to dance the dances. Dancers will be walked through the dances and any unfamiliar moves explained, before they attempt them with the music - supported all the way by the caller.

Photos and music samples are of the larger band. The band can also offer the use of their PA for a "DIY disco" after the ceilidh - please enquire for more details. They can also offer songs, so they are popular for conferences etc where perhaps you want an evening of Scottish music but don't necessarily want to ceilidh all night. They also offer highland pipes, ceremony music on flute, fiddle, guitar or a combination thereof, and music for drinks receptions. Did we mention they can call the ceilidh dances in French or German too?!


Wedding"Hi Guys, Just wanted to say a massive "THANK YOU!" for your amazing performance at our wedding in March. The party was a great success and it was fantastic to see the dance floor full all night. Everyone agreed it was certainly a night to remember. Looking forward to seeing you all again."
Ceilidh"We booked you for a ceilidh in the summer and it was fantastic. Playing was great and the caller made it easy for people to follow. everyone got up and danced - even the 'non dancers'. Great energy made it impossible to keep still. Thanks for a great night!"
Ceilidh"A brief note to thank you again for accompanying and leading our ceilidh on Saturday with such vigour and enthusiasm. We were thrilled to have every generation on the dance floor together - all visibly enjoying themselves. We will not hesitate to recommend you. With best wishes, Sue and David."
