The tradition of ceilidh dancing has been established across the ages. It is a good way of getting wedding guests dancing and interacting with each other on your big day.
Reel Time works with a variety of bands who we feel are at the top of the ceilidh scene here in Scotland. Whether it be a traditional ceilidh band, Scottish country dance band or a funky ceilidh sound that you require, we can provide the right band for the most special day of your lives.
The ceilidh bands we provide are seasoned professionals, playing through quality P.A. (speaker) systems. The bands we work with invest in their equipment to keep it sounding the best for every performance. Our bands are insured for public liability and their equipment is PAT(electrical) tested.
All bands come with a ceilidh dance caller, to talk guests through the dances, so ceilidh rookies and seasoned professionals can have an equally enjoyable time.
The bands come anywhere from a two to seven piece setup, depending on your budget and space. The instruments usually played include: Accordion, fiddle, guitar, bagpipes, keyboards and drums. Some bands work with singers if your guests prefer listening rather than dancing, or venue space is limited.
The bands play all the traditional ceilidh favourites, including Gay Gordon’s, Dashing White Sergeant, Eightsome Reel, Canadian Barn dance, to name but a few.
