Get ready to dance the night away with a traditional Céilidh performed live by one of the UK’s best ceilidh bands – Bang On The Wall Band.
A ceilidh, barn dance or country dance is a great fun way to meet people and even helps to keep you fit. No prior dancing experience is necessary as all the dances are called – with the caller explaining all the dances in detail – ensuring everyone has great fun no matter how many right and left feet you may have!
The Bang On The Wall Band consists of Martin Wildig on lead melodeon, Phil Preen on percussion and tin whistle, Michael Scrivens on Bass and Neil Cadwallader on Guitar. The band play mostly traditional English, Scottish, Irish and American tunes, but you may hear the occasional tune from mainland Europe or Scandinavia, and also modern tunes composed by a band member or friend of the band.
You’ll soon be tapping your toes and, as the band continue to play, you’ll be getting up on the dance floor in no time with a smile on your face and rhythm in your shoes for a thoroughly enjoyable evening of entertainment!
“Martin’s forceful, driving melodeon playing, Phil’s unique percussion style, and their enthusiasm for the music, combine to create the band’s wonderfully danceable sound.”
