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

Our typical evening would be playing from 9pm until midnight, and we would require an hour before the start time to set-up.

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.
