Both highly entertaining and educational, The Sassenachs made an evening at the Ceilidh Club a great joy to take part in. The energy they created in the room was contagious and I feel like the band and caller were engaging in every aspect of the word. I had a great time and was surrounded by a crowd of smiling people the whole evening so that speaks volumes. Highly recommended!

The Sassenachs played at our wedding - they were amazing! Laurie is a top guy who controls the room superbly and caters for all standards. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

Thank you so much for helping make the evening an absolutely roaring success! Everyone was so complimentary about the band and we, as I’m sure you could tell, loved every minute of it. We will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a ceilidh band!

"So much fun! Took a group along who have never been to a Ceilidh and
had an amazing time. The band were great, lots of energy and a brilliant caller with clear instructions and excellent demos. We all cannot wait to go back!"
