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 chateau ceilidhs and French weddings to Irish ceilidhs and beginner barndances, Ceilidh Tree are guaranteed to get everyone dancing with an ace caller, fiddles and accordion.
From Paris to Nice, Marseille to Lyon and whether you’re ceilidh virgins or veterans, we’ll get you jigging!
We perform across France, particularly for weddings in the Dordogne, Provence, Paris, Normandy, Brittany and the Loire. We can provide entirely Scottish or Irish ceilidhs and French translation if required.
'Amazing Ceilidh and Disco for our wedding; REALLY FUN...best Ceilidh I've been to - highly, highly recommend!!' - Emma Cory, Jun 2019
'We had Ceilidh Tree for our wedding and they were absolutely brilliant. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat!' - Rahma Dutton, Aug 2019
Ceilidh Tree’s recommended French venue: Château nr Brantôme, Dordogne
We provided a ceilidh with DJ set, lighting and sound system for a French-Scottish wedding at a stunning Château in Perigord / Dordogne. Ceilidh Tree’s guitarist also had the honour of playing the bride down the aisle with an Irish waltz.
Huge thanks to MG Photographies for the fab pics and kind words – blog at “Mariage anglais écossais dans le Périgord”.
