Ceilidh bands
Date Posted: 08.58hrs on Tue 6 Jul 04
Hi guys, I'm looking for a Ceilidh band to play at a friend's wedding next year (30 April 05) near Stirling. I live in London and thus am not in the best place to find Scottish bands! Does anyone know the contact details of any bands?? I looked for the Tartan Ameobas online but could nae find them, I remember them from my student days in Edinburgh. Any help appreciated. Cheers

What is the budget? I know some folk musicans who put together ad-hoc bands to meet requirements, and also have contacts for more established bands.

What are you looking for, slow old time dancing type ceilidh band, or a bunch of youngsters in what you might term "kick ass ceilidh", where hard house hasn't got a look in on the beat count! :p

i'm actually the keyboard player in the Tartan Ameobas.
We don't call ourselves that anymore, and its a different line-up (Fraser still fronts the band on Fiddle, Scott on guitar) but we still play frequently.
Give Fraser a call on 07909 921823

cheers, Grant

You can get in touch via the website if you want to carry on with it but the website should give you all the gab.
