Barn Dance Ceilidh for a Wedding or Party

A barn dance or ceilidh is a fantastic fun social event that all ages can enjoy and the music isn’t so loud that it drowns out conversation. 

We do Ceilidhs for evening Wedding Receptions, where both sides of the family and friends can get to know each other. 

We do Barn Dances for parties: birthday parties, wedding anniversary celebrations, retirements, change of job parties and more..

We play for fund raising events, Burns Nights, St Patricks, New Year’s Eve, Military dinners, village shows, church socials, golf clubs, football clubs and athletics clubs. Is there anything that we don’t play for? I don’t think so.


Barn Dance & Ceilidh Difference

Some people think that a Ceilidh Dance and a Barn Dance are completely different things. They are not.  Barn Dance tends to be the English and American name, where English or American folk tunes would be played. Ceilidh is the Scottish and Irish name, hence Scottish Ceilidh Bands and Irish Ceili Bands. Here the bands would mostly play Celtic folk tunes. 

Both a ceilidh and a barn dance will have a caller to teach the dances and sort out the muddles (theyre the best part!). The band will play traditional tunes, as appropriate. Many of the dances are very similar no matter what kind of dance it is (often the same dances and tunes are claimed by the Irish, Scotts, English and Americans as their own, but played in a different style). 

Of course, there are also the dances that are specific, Square Dances for American Barn Dances, Strip the Willow for Scottish Ceilidhs and so on. Read more about Ceilidhs. Barn Dances, Hoedowns, Twmpaths, Country Dances here....
