Ceilidh Minogue - Scottish ceilidh band
The band is one of Scotland's best loved ceilidh bands, and features accordion, fiddle, drums and piano. It never fails to make ceilidh, wedding, civil partnership or corporate event a success.
The ceilidh band is based in Scotland but plays all over the UK covering cities from Edinburgh and Glasgow down to London and Manchester as well as abroad. (Most recently France, Indonesia, Tunisia, Lithuania, Belgium, Azerbaijan, Bahrain)
We have appeared 'live' on the BBC Radio Scotland 'Hogmanay' show for the last 4 years. We recently played at the Orkney, Newcastleton and Tynemouth Festivals and have been featured in TV dramas like BBC's Monarch of the Glen and STV's Heartless !
The band was first put together in 1995 and we can provide a 3, 4 or 5 piece line-ups depending on what your wedding, function, civil partnership or budget dictates and we have of course our 'ceilidh horn section'. (For more details on personnel see our line-up page.)
Our callers can 'call' all the dances if you wish (see the ' dances' page for dance instructions) and we can also provide some disco or background music during intervals. We can source jazz trios, piano players and other musicians to play at your drinks receptions or during meals, or a piper to play at your wedding. We can even compose original music specially for you on your wedding day.
You can find out more about the ceilidh band and listen to the sound samples from both our albums in the music page or Contact us for more details or a quote.
We also have £10m Public Liability Insurance and all electrical equipment is PAT tested.
