About Our Ceilidhs

A ceilidh band is a great way to get everyone up and dancing at your wedding, (or  birthday, anniversary or village 'do'.) 

We offer the ultimate cross-generation entertainment for where family and friends meet, sometimes for the first time. There's ample opportunities to swop partners or couples so you’ll soon see your school friends, work colleagues, BFFs, parents, ageing relatives and young cousins dancing together and having the best time. 

DJ are great but there’s nothing to beat the feel of a live band, and you’re providing a living wage for passionate people who play simply because it’s important to them.  

The Fairgreen Ceilidh Band has a wealth of experience - guaranteed to get everyone dancing. 

You don’t have to worry about remembering all the moves either. That’s why the caller is there. They’ll walk you through the whole dance, one move at a time, and then talk you through it when you’re actually dancing.

Over the years Fairgreen Ceilidh have curated a bunch of tried and tested folk tune/dance combinations from England, Ireland and Scotland which dancing guests will love -  brought to you by lively, 2, 3 or 4 piece band of excellent musicians  - fantastic fiddle, caller/guitar/mandolin, bass guitar and drummer.

As each celebration is unique we tailor our set to get the best out of your guests; guaranteed to bring all the generations together.

Wedding First Dance options & special requests considered.


As well as an eclectic set we can also provide a more Scottish leaning experience with classics such as The Gay Gordons, Dashing White Sergeant, Orcadian Strip The Willow, The Flying Scotsman, Highland Barndance and Circassion Circle.

The Grand March, with pre recorded music is also available at weddings.
