We have a solid reputation, providing an energetic vibrant sound to entertain your guests. We have a dedicated dance caller, Tricia (who is probably the most important member of the band!), who has years of experience and is guaranteed to calm any nerves and make sure that everyone enjoys themselves. If you would like to come and see Annasach play live then we regularly play for public ceilidhs and we would be happy to provide you with a pair of complimentary tickets!

We can provide music for functions, weddings, events, background music etc. These events we can play for up to 3 hours, with short breaks every 30 minutes.

Triple Scotch Ceilidh Band

Triple Scotch Ceilidh Band With Dance Caller - Up To 3 Hours

Verified bookings: 6
The UK's finest ceilidh band available for weddings and private events. Breathtaking musical talent; clear, patient and cheerful dance calling; an excellent atmosphere full of energy; fifteen years' experience as a band, meaning we can always 'read the room' and make it work perfectly for you and your guests. We are always happy to fit in with your existing timings - we usually find that two 'sets' of dancing each lasting between 45 and 90 minutes will work well for any event, so we would usually play anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours in total. We will work with you to make the right plan for your event. Unlike many bands on the circuit we only use a small pool of very talented musicians, and only commit to bookings where we can guarantee you'll have 'the A team.' So rest assured you'll be in safe hands whether you are a ceilidh novice or expert, and the sheer quality of the playing and calling is unrivalled.

Recent review: Absolutely brilliant, kids were enthralled throughout the performance, John was patient and witty when they inevitably started trying to check his pockets and sleves and the magic was top class. Lots of things we'd never see before and the card trick with the blank pack was jaw dropping. Would not hesitate to recommend for any events and hope we get the chance to see him perform again in the future.
