Ceilidh Bands

We often receive enquiries from people looking to book a band to hold a ceilidh themselves. We don’t ‘offer’ bands as such but below you will find links to some the bands we use. We can also give some limited general advice on things to think about for your event, based on our own experience of running fundraising ceilidhs – please contact the office The following bands have been playing at SMG’s ceilidhs for many years now, please support them!

Ceilidh Caleerie Dance Band

SMG’s very own dance band, Ceilidh Caleerie grew out of our Playing for Dancing class, and they regularly play for community and charity ceilidhs (for a small donation to Ceilidh Caleerie funds). Ceilidh Caleerie’s policy is to play at events for good causes which couldn’t otherwise hold a ceilidh, rather than competing with professional bands, but they do offer a full ceilidh complete with calling, and have their own PA system.

Please contact the band through their website here
