Ceilidh Bands & Barn Dances in the East Midlands

Although ceilidhs are often associated with Ireland and Scotland, they are growing in popularity right across the United Kingdom and the world. Now, we can offer you the chance to hire one for your very own party or event.

The word ‘ceilidh’ is a Scottish one (the Irish spelling is ‘ceili’) and refers to a traditional social gathering in the Gaelic communities, in which folk music and traditional dancing are usually taken part in. Although the term originally referred to any sort of social gathering, nowadays they tend to revolve mainly around the musical aspect of the entertainment, with live bands contributing to the evening’s events.

As Irish and Gaelic culture in many forms has spread across the world, and across England in particular, it should come as no surprise that ceilidhs, barn dances and folk events are more popular than ever in the East Midlands, having been fused with English barn dances to create a new type of ‘fusion ceilidh’ which has to be experienced to be believed.

At DG Music, we specialise in providing entertainment, and traditional events are no different. Call us today on 01572 756386 to ask about the acts on our books, and we’ll do all we can to help make your event extra special and a night to remember for a long, long time.
