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: If your looking for someone to get your party started, then Gary is definitely the man for the job! His professionalism was second to none, after having all the stresses of arranging a surprise 50th for my husband , then came the snow! he came all the way from a previous gig in Exeter to our party in Kent to ensure he wouldn’t let us down, he even arranged a back up for us should the snow beat him , but he made it in good time! His communication was excellent and always replied quickly. His voice and performance were amazing. I asked for a couple of personal songs that meant a lot to us and he delivered on those too. 100% would book again you won’t be disappointed! Thank you Gary xx
