DG Music Welcomes The Leicester Ceilidh Band!

Published: 6 Jul 12, 03:25pm  |  Author: DG Music

The Leicester Ceilidh Band have just been added to our list of artists, and what a wonderful addition they are. There is nothing more likely to get you up and dancing than a traditional Barndance or Ceilidh, and this lively band certainly know how to entertain!

You needn’t worry, there will be no scowling from the musicians should you get any of the steps wrong – this band know that one of the reasons Ceilidhs are so fun is that ‘no previous experience is required.’ As well as this, they encourage participation from all age groups, from the ‘just-about-walking’ toddlers, to their grandmas and grandpas!

The most exciting part of this band is their authenticity. The majority of their music is based upon English, Scottish and Irish folk tunes, and where necessary they come dressed in period costume. They are perfect for heritage events, farmers markets, and for those of us who just enjoy a themed ‘do’!  And the band members themselves are folk musicians down to the very core. Nikki (the fiddler player) has travelled extensively worldwide playing the fiddle with a multitude of bands and is truly dazzling. And Steve (on the guitar and Mandola) is a wonderful singer / songwriter, greatly respected by his local folk scene.

I’d perhaps just have one comment against this band – Ceilidh’s are not suitable for those of us in high-heels. Perhaps discard the glamour, roll up your sleeves, and get ready to jump around the dance hall.
