We believe starting your ceilidh / barndance with a bang is vital. If guests enjoy the first dance then they’re more likely to keep coming back for more so the first choice is key. As a ceilidh opener, we love Virginia Reel. It’s quick to teach and set up so there’s not much waiting around
Irish ceilidh band Ceilidh Tree specialise have played for countless Irish weddings in England and a few in Ireland! We’ve performed on ITV for St Patrick’s Day and are regulars at the Irish Centre.
