Hello and thank you for your enquiry. Annasach Ceilidh Band would be available and delighted to play for your ceilidh.

Annasach has been playing for ceilidhs, parties, birthdays, folk festivals and weddings since 1990 throughout Scotland, the UK and most recently Germany, France, Portugal and Switzerland. 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! With Annasach you are dealing with the musicians directly and we know how important the music is to your evening for generating the perfect atmosphere. We hope that this information is useful however please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further queries or if there is any way we can make this quote more personal to you.

They are excellent musicians and Alan has a super voice for Irish songs, both soft and strong. Steve's fiddle playing was superb and complemented Alan's voice and guitar. They were happy to play requests from the audience and had a great interaction with the audience. We would definitely book them again as would most of the people present. As someone who goes to a lot of live music events I was really impressed. Book Shenanigans for a great night of entertainment, we all had a wonderful evening, thank you again Alan and Steve!

Triple Scotch Ceilidh Band

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

Verified bookings: 0
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.
