Ceilidh Minogue

The band features accordion, fiddle, drums but often adds piano or guitar to the line up.. 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 Germany, France, Portugal, Indonesia, Tunisia, Lithuania, Belgium, Azerbaijan, Bahrain)
We appeared 'live' on the BBC Radio Scotland 'Hogmanay' show for 8 years from 2008 to 2016. We played at the Trad Awards ceilidh from 2016-19 and at the Commonwelth Games in 2014 and festivals in Rudolstadt (2016), Orkney (2010), Newcastleton, Perthshire Amber and Tynemouth.

The present band line-up has been together since 2001 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 band 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.
