Overview

The Glasgow Ceilidh Band hail from the very heart of Scotland's largest city; Argyle Street to be precise. Now everyone knows that there's no party like a Glasgow party. So when it comes to a ceilidh, The Glasgow Ceilidh Band take the humble ceilidh to a whole new Glaswegian level.

 

We're a young band but have been performing for a number of years. We cater for all abilities of dancers from newbies to hard core ceilidh masters. We're all experienced dance callers so even if you don't know your Gay Gordons from your Strip The Willow, we'll make sure you still have a great time.

Like most ceilidh bands these days we realise that perhaps not every one of your guests has the stamina to ceilidh all night long so we can provide a DJ set to break up the night so you can have the best of both worlds.

We are Ross on pipes and vocals (Pipe Major of the National Youth Band of Scotland), Robbie on fiddle (trained at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Craig who recently won the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Musician of the Year award.

Now although we're based in Glasgow, we're happy to travel across the country (even Edinburgh) so don't hesitate to call free on 08006123320 for a chat about your requirements and a quote.

Enquire now and we'll provide you with an instant quote and availability check so you can decide if we're the band for you.

The Glasgow Ceilidh Band

The Glasgow Ceilidh Band were awesome!

The Glasgow Ceilidh Band

The guys were not only very professional, but also really nice people. They had a lovely positive approach, were very patient with our attempts to dance to the instructions they called out and great fun to have at our wedding. We couldn’t have hoped for a better night of ceilidh dancing. Absolutely superb, thank you guys.

Our band, The Foot Stompin' Ceilidh Band, were incredible. Hugely talented, friendly and really great with the crowd.
Our ceilidh was amazing, and they did such a brilliant job of talking us through the more complex dances. We had a lot of foreign guests and they gave a real sense of a true Scottish wedding!
Everyone mentioned how brilliant they were and we couldn't agree more.
Thanks for making our wedding reception superb!

Fab service all round. Would recommend! :-)

The Glasgow Ceilidh Band

Our wedding party had several junior guests who were keen to join in the ceilidh. The band were fantastic at including the younger guests. In the end the kids picked up the dances quicker than the adults!

I would highly recommend this band. We had a lot of people whom had never been to a ceilidh before and many that were french however Ross was an excellent caller and everyone managed to join in and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I had chosen this band as they had bagpipes too which gives the band that extra bit of "oomph" I think!
We didn't use them as dj as had our own but they played our first song for us first.

The Band were excellent, very friendly and professional. They were happy to be flexible ,as our timings on the night went a bit askew!This then ensured our evening was successful. Everyone enjoyed listening and dancing to the music, and were full of compliments for the Band. We would have no hesitation in recommending Glasgow Ceilidh Band to others.
With regard to the website ,we found this easy to use, and had a very quick response rate. It was great to have samples of Bands playing so we could listen, and watch them play.
The Hireaband staff, who we had contact with, have all been really helpful, and prompt with replies and paperwork.

Hi Gaye - just wanted to send you a message to say how fantastic The Glasgow Ceilidh Band were at our party on Saturday night - a large number of our guests (quite a lot of whom are musicians) commented on how good the band were. And they couldn't have been friendlier or more accommodating with the way the evening ran.
Thanks again - we would definitely recommend this band to friends and family.
