The ceilidh dance Virginia Reel is one of Ceilidh Tree’s all time favourites. We usually include it early on in a set as it’s so quick to teach and also helps us start with a bit of a bang. The dramatic formation with two long lines and that crucial final gallop in the Virginia Reel
From Scottish ceilidhs to Irish weddings and beginner barndances, Ceilidh Tree are the Hampshire ceilidh band to get everyone dancing. Our amazing caller and ace fiddles can be seen across Winchester, Basingstoke, Southampton, Petersfield and beyond. Ceilidh virgins or veterans? We’ll get you jigging!
From a solo caller to full quartet with DJ, Ceilidh Tree will wow your guests with the very best tunes and dances! We can provide entirely Scottish or Irish ceilidhs and have ceilidh’d at most of the major venues in Hampshire. We love ceilidhing in the area and are regulars at Burley Manor, The Elvetham, Froyle Park and Winchester Cathedral to name a few!
