This Leicestershire based Ceilidh Band is a lively 2-5 piece, playing a range of traditional folk music from English hornpipes to Irish jigs and reels.


No experience of barn dancing is necessary, they will provide a caller to take your guests through each dance (although half the fun is getting it wrong and trying to catch up!). They will also select dances that fit a variety of age groups so that everyone can get involved.

The Duo

If it’s a duo you’re after then Steve and Nikki can provide a selection of fine rocking Celtic music, including well-known Irish traditional and contemporary jigs, reels and songs. They can also play a wide range of 60s and 70s rock ‘n’ roll! And, if you would like some background music they will serenade your guests with a mixture of classical, medieval and jazz, creating the perfect ambience! Whether you’re looking for a folk duo or Ceilidh barn dance, this band will provide great music and entertainment for your event!
