About Ceili House
This Yorkshire-based band, specialise in traditional music and dance from the west of Ireland. The band frequently play at wedding receptions and private parties and are also popular performers at clubs and festivals.
The band have a flexible line-up with leader Chris Maguire on fiddle, mandolin and vocals and other band members on a selection of keyboard/piano, accordion, melodeon, banjo, flute, whistle and harmonica. In all cases, Ceili House creates an enchanting and authentic sound using only extremely well-respected musicians, amongst whom two have been named “All Britain Champions” on their chosen instruments. Our quoted price is for a three-piece band augmented with a caller to call familiar English and Scottish dances, or with a specialist Irish Set Dance caller.
This is a great band, both to listen to and to dance to. With their caller, guests can be guided through the dance steps and do not need any previous knowledge – though they will need plenty of energy!
The band normally play for about two hours and provides their own full PA system. If requested the band can also play CDs through their PA system during breaks.
