The House of Lairds


The House of Lairds are one of the most versatile bands in Scotland. Ceilidh, traditional folk music, country, rock and hits from the current charts all from one band! Unparalleled and outstanding.

 House of Lairds Wedding Ceilidh Band

Formed at the turn of the millennium, The House of Lairds feature some of Scotland's finest professional musicians.

Their unbelievably high energy shows have resulted in highlights such as performing at T in the Park, The Edinburgh Hogmanay Street Party (the biggest new year celebrations in the world) and at various events to mark the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

The band have taken their show all over the world, including Angola, The USA, France, Portugal, Spain and even ... England!

If you're a ceilidh beginner or just a bit rusty, the band will "call" (explain the dances step by step) for you. Not a massive ceilidh fan? Don't worry, you'll hear a great selection of pop, rock, country and folk songs. Basically The House of Lairds can cater for almost anyone.

Instruments include drums, bass, guitars, keyboards, accordion, fiddle, mandolin and the much maligned banjo. The band also provides strong male and female vocals and tight harmonies.

The House of Lairds were excellent. They did everything they said they would do. They got people dancing, and we all had a great time. Liaison was fine, and we were really pleased with the evening. We had a fabulous time. The House of Lairds (and Ladies) were ideal for a wedding celebration such as this. Thank you.

Just a wee email to thank all you guys very much for a wonderful performance on Saturday at the Station Hotel Ellon on our wedding day. We are very grateful for you all playing a part in our very special day. The reports we have received from our guests has been of the highest order. Your assessment and musical choice was second to none the whole evening from start to finish. Once again we cannot express our gratitude enough for a fantastic evening of all tastes of music.

We were very pleased with all aspects of their performance, arriving punctually, setting up unobtrusively & departing without fuss. They accepted any requests, kept the noise level down & were able to cater extremely well for a very wide age range.
