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 a solo caller to full quartet with DJ, Bristol ceilidh band Ceilidh Tree will wow with the very best tunes and dances! We can provide entirely Scottish or Irish ceilidhs and know most of the venues in Bristol.
We love ceilidhing across the west country and are thrilled to have ceilidhs lined up at the Bristol Old Vic, Arnos Vale and Besse’s Tea Rooms in 2021!

Bristol ceilidh band reviews & venues:
Battle Axes, Wraxall, Bristol
“The Ceilidh Tree band were fantastic and the caller was brilliant. So many people were on their feet and dancing all night, so we could not have asked for anything more.” – John T, Wedding @ Battleaxes, Bristol
Batch Country House, Weston-Super-Mare / Bristol
“Ceilidh Tree put on an amazing ceilidh at our wedding, the band played brilliantly and the calling was spot on. We’ve had so many people saying how much they enjoyed it (as did we!!).” – Anna-Louise D, wedding @ Batch Country House, Bristol
North Cadbury Court, nr. Bristol
“Can we take this opportunity to thank you all for what was a great event. It went down well with the guests and certainly got most people up and dancing, which was the main aim of having a ceilidh!” – Jacques, wedding @ North Cadbury Court, nr. Bristol
Backwell House, Bristol
We provided a ceilidh and DJ set for a mature Scottish wedding in the splendid grounds of Bristol’s Backwell House. The tipi dancefloor was cosy but we still managed an epic Gay Gordons and Strip The Willow!
