When it comes to ceilidh dancing we understand that not everyone knows what to do. So a dance caller will be supplied to guide the guests through the steps in a light-hearted fun manner.

Ceilidh dancing is all about having a great time. We make that part of our job to make it fun for all ages.

As well as providing music for ceilidhs, the band is also experienced at traditional reeling and Scottish country dances.

"Matthew from The Edinburgh Ceilidh Band drove from Edinburgh to Laurencekirk a Saturday evening and arranged a one-hour fantastic ceilidh for a bunch of Norwegians that had never danced it before. One-hour might sounds like a lot when you have never danced it before, but it was such a great fun and that hour went fast by. Matthew used a lot of humour and the whole party really enjoyed taking part in it. Highly recommended!"

"Thank you to Matthew and his band for performing at our wedding last Saturday. All our guests loved your ceilidh. Many had never been to a ceilidh before and you made the dances so easy to understand and most importantly kept it fun. It was an amazing day for us made all the more special by your band. We're so glad that we hired you for our ceilidh!"
