Lindores Abbey Burns Night

The band were delighted to return to Lindores Abbey Distillery on Saturday January 27th to celebrate Burns night with plenty of tunes and dancing.  

A 4-piece line-up of smallpipes, whistle, drums and acoustic guitar provided the evenings entertainment in the always picturesque setting at Lindores, with some new tunes debuting as well as old favourites. 

We look forward to returning to Lindores Abbey soon, but for now we have a ceilidh at George Watson’s College to look forward to next month.

 

January 2018

It’s been a busy start to the year so far with plenty of enquiries coming in. Thanks to everyone who has contacted us - we really appreciate it. 

The band has enjoyed a great start to the year, with a Hogmanay ceilidh at the excellent Lindores Abbey distillery in Newburgh and then another outing at the annual Peoples Ford Boghall and Bathgate Pipe Band  Burns Supper on Saturday 19th - our 4th time performing at the event.

We now look forward to revisiting Lindores Abbey to celebrate their first Burns Supper this coming weekend.

November Happenings

Time for a wee update...

The band have been out and about gigging this month again. Firstly, on the 7th, we headed to the Millennium Hotel in Glasgow, where we had the pleasure of playing at band member Emma's wedding reception. The occasion was made extra special for the band as Emma joined in for a few tunes - wedding dress and all!

November 21st saw the band play a ceilidh at the Edinburgh Academy, playing our first ever birthday ceilidh. Aside from the impressive settings, the band especially enjoyed this ceilidh as we got to debut some new arrangements, including Dougie McLeans 'Caledonia' and the Local Hero theme 'Going Home' by Mark Knopfler. The badn had great fun playing these, so look out for more song arrangements in the very near future!

2016 booking are coming in - if you are looking for a ceilidh band please contact us here. Now it's time to enjoy the Christmas period and prepare for our Hogmany gig.

Our first road trip!

Saturday 2nd May saw us play our first ever gig outside of Scotland as the band travelled South to the beautiful setting of Pimhill Barn in Shrewsbury, near Wolverhampton, to provide a ceilidh at the wedding reception of the new Mr & Mrs Larkham – Jones! All credit to the happy couple and families, who decorated the converted barn to create an amazing looking venue for a very memorable ceilidh!

Needless to say, the trip was absolutely worth it as the guests in attendance were up dancing right from the get go! The band had a fantastic time, proving exactly why we are always up for a road trip to provide a ceilidh experience everyone will enjoy.

Big thanks go to Barry and Vicki for inviting us down to share their special day, our dep drummer Calum who traveled with us and those who have provided us with media to share – which shall be uploaded very soon!

Stay tuned for more news in the coming weeks!
