The Ceilidh Idealach Scottish Ceilidh Band ref: 4812.2
A traditional Scottish Ceilidh Band playing not only the well know Scottish favourites for the dancing, but interspersing with Strathsepys, the Music of Scott Skinner & the tunes of the Shetland Isles. This is the 3 piece line up of the band. Derek (fiddle) lived in Strathaven for 15 years, and has played for Scottish Demonstration dances at international folk festivals here and abroad. One of the Strathspeys performed was written for Esther’s (flute / piccolo / piano / caller – isn’t she so versatile!) uncle, who stays in Eyemouth.
The line up for this band is drawn from the larger band which includes 2 fiddle, accordion, piano/ flute /piccolo, guitar, bass, percussion with one of the musicians calling. As classically trained musicians, the band achieve the precision required of Scottish music.
Larger bands can be offered.
The band includes 3 out of fiddle, accordion, flute/piccolo/caller, piano/caller, guitar, bass/caller depending on what is most appropriate for the event. Please say at the time of booking if you have a specific preference.
There is also a larger 4 piece including caller line up of the Ceilidh band and a 3 piece Session Band line up, without a caller, for music to listen to. This is good for background music at weddings, dinners and military functions.
