Hire a Ceilidh Band
We often receive enquiries from people looking to book a band to hold a ceilidh themselves. We don’t ‘offer’ bands as such but below you will find links to some the bands we use. The following bands have been playing at SMG’s ceilidhs for many years now, please support them!
Bella McNab’s Dance Band, Canongate Cadjers, Da Hooley, The Occasionals, Portobello Ceilidh Band, The Robert Fish Band, Matthew Maclennan Ceilidh Band, The Greater Spotted Ceilidh Band
Ceilidh Caleerie Dance Band
SMG’s very own dance band, Ceilidh Caleerie grew out of our Playing for Dancing class, and they regularly play for community and charity ceilidhs (for a small donation to Ceilidh Caleerie funds). Ceilidh Caleerie’s policy is to play at events for good causes which couldn’t otherwise hold a ceilidh, rather than competing with professional bands, but they do offer a full ceilidh complete with calling, and have their own PA system.
Please contact the band through their website. (https://ceilidhcaleeriedanceband.wordpress.com/)
