Hello! We're Silver Street Ceilidh Band - a fabulous ceilidh band based in London.
“Best ceilidh ever!” – Rachel, wedding
We play beautiful, lively, irresistibly danceable music for all occasions. We're an eclectic group of some of the finest musicians on the scene, with roots in the rich seam of traditional music in Scotland and the North East of England. We boast decades of experience of playing for dancing between us (as well as a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award) despite our youthful looks! We know how to ensure you - and your guests - have a fabulous time!
The lineup is: Caller, dual fiddles, melodeon and piano.

Silver street ceilidh band played our wedding, they were incredible. Musically as a band they were excellent, Martin was extremely helpful with his calling and providing some demonstrations. All band members very friendly and chatted to guests. Would absolutely recommend them if you’re after a ceilidh band! Thanks so much guys!

Fantastic in every way. So easy to work with before the event and then on the night it was just so fun. They are able to create a great atmosphere and encourage everyone to participate or enjoy watching. Great musicians and very flexible.

We had a great experience from start to finish with these guys.
Martin and I had a good chat through things over the phone in advance of our wedding to answer some of my questions and work out a few logistics and finer details. Martin was very reassuring and accommodating and followed up promptly with details as promised.
On the big day, the band were fantastic. They got themselves set up and adapted without any trouble to a delayed start (our meal had overrun). The music sounded great and the calling was really clear and with just the right amount of explanations to get everyone dancing and more or less(!) doing the right things whilst still keeping things moving nicely.
Nearly all our guests, young and old, ended up getting stuck in, which was great fun and made our day extra memorable for everyone.

"We were so pleased we had booked Martin and the SIlver Street Ceilidh Band for our awards night. From first contact to the night itself they were friendly, fun and professional. Their music and calling got everyone up dancing and was just what we needed. The only down side was that being an awards night, the speeches went on a bit and we didn't have as much of the band as we would have liked. It was very easy booking through Poptop.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Thank you Martin."

Silver Street Ceilidh are very professional band who were a pleasure to deal with throughout the booking process and on the day. The band was lively, got everyone up dancing and the instructions from the caller were very clear. We had such a fun evening and received lots of positive comments from our guests, many of whom had never been to a ceilidh before. I would definitely book them again and highly recommend them to anyone looking for an energetic and enthusiastic band. Thanks!
