What others say about The Ceilidh mafia

This Ceilidh band are not the norm, melding melodic guitar, fluid bass and tight drums with excellent bagpipe work.

The rhythm section alone is enough to make you wanna dance, throw in the excellent Jonny on pipes and you will be on the dance floor all night.
