What are Ceilidh Bands?

Before exploring the bands themselves, it makes sense to learn a little bit of history. A traditional Ceilidh is a traditional Gaelic social gathering that has been practised in Scotland and Ireland for a very long time. This type of gathering is still carried out today, involving drinking, dancing, and enjoying music together. You don’t need an event like this to enjoy the fun of Ceilidh Bands, though.

Ceilidh music Bands themselves will typically play acoustic Scottish music instruments, performing folk music that will usually have a happy lilt to it. Standard instruments include accordions, cellos, and guitars, but you can find Ceilidh Band members playing an array of different instruments to fill the dance floor of your event!
