The Dab Hand Ceilidh Band love to play for dancing and will provide you with a high quality ceilidh whether you are an experienced ceilidh dancer or first timer. Our three piece line up consists of fiddle, border pipes, whistle and guitar and we perform using our own high quality PA system.
We know that a great ceilidh should be good fun, inclusive and accessible to all. Our caller, Sarah will explain all dances clearly and will have everyone up on their feet.
We are happy to tailor the ceilidh to your individual requirements, however from many years of experience, we find the following format works very well:
A typical Dab Hand ceilidh involves all the popular ceilidh dances including the Dashing White Sergeant, Strip the Willow, Gay Gordons, Canadian Barn Dance and Riverside Jig. If there are any specific dances you would like to add, just let us know and we will be happy to include them.
After we finish the ceilidh, you can hire our PA system to play your own music through if you would like to continue the party further. A member of the Dab Hand team will stay on until the end of your party to ensure the smooth running of this part of the evening.
