The FW Ceilidh/Barn Dance Band

The FW ceilidh band are the ideal ceilidh band for any event. Antonella, is one of the most admired callers in the area. Sometimes people comment of dance callers being hectoring or school-teacherish! Antonella is the complete opposite of that. She is highly empathetic and equally good at explaining the dance-steps to complete beginners, young children or experienced dancers. She also plays percussion and whistle. Ruth has been described as a ‘flash melodeon player’, and her toe-tapping squeezebox style will get you in the mood for dancing; while Liz provides rhythm on banjo or baritone ukulele.

The band don't just play simply as a hobby to amuse themselves! They try to be professional in their approach, aiming to tailor each evening to the occasion, to suit the requirements of the client. They certainly think they must be doing something right; in recent years they've been doing more and more repeat bookings, i.e. people they've played for once come back and ask them to do it again. Whatever your event this is aband well worth considering.


So if you have a Wedding or Civil Partnership coming up, or one of those significant Birthdays or Anniversaries, this is a great band to book for an evening of Strictly Come Ceilidh! And if you’re planning a Harvest Supper, Bonfire Night or Christmas Party, if you have an empty barn and don’t know what to do with it, or if you just feel like having a fun evening for no reason at all, how about a barn dance?. They can also expand to a 4-piece line-up when required.

‘… Brilliant, exactly what [we’d] been hoping for, absolutely made the evening, lots of friends calling … to say what a marvellous time they’d had’.
‘The band was great, they did a wonderful job getting us up and taking us gently through our paces…. I liked the way the dances got steadily more difficult as the evening progressed, and it was great that they would allow us time to recover in between each dance.
