Jude and Brad’s Wedding at The Bell Hotel, Driffield

We had a fantastic time playing for Jude and Brad at their wedding at The Bell Hotel in Driffield – amazing dancers from Australia, Scotland and England made for an exciting night with possibly the fastest strip the willow we have ever seen! Our fingers and the dancer’s feet were a blur.

Here is a picture of Jude and Brad’s first waltz….

Planning a wedding celebration, retirement or birthday party at at the The Bell in Driffield ? Why not book the Hessle Ceildh Band?

Hessle Ceilidh Band are based in the East Riding of Yorkshire near Hull. We are a five to ten piece band including a dance caller. We have whistle, fiddles, recorders, melodeon, guitar, bass, piano, bagpipes, hurdy-gurdy, various percussion and sometimes shawm. Our gigs are vibrant and fun – but not for the faint of heart who don’t like a good old knees up! Look out for our community ceilidhs on the Events Diary page for any public dances.

Whatever the event, be it a Ceilidh or Barn Dance we have a vast amount of music that will create the right feel good factor for your event ranging from Scottish, Irish, European, Medieval and the traditional music of England.

But the band is only half the story – the other half is the caller – the person who shouts the moves out and guides you through the dances – we are really lucky to work with an exceptional caller who is full of energy and can get people up and enjoying themselves in no time – the dances are fantastic and really help to build a party atmosphere.

Our caller knows loads of amazing dances that are really great fun – has also been known to throw in the occasional story and exceptionally funny jokes to give the dancers time to rest and catch their breath.

To contact the band email: hessleceilidhband@yahoo.co.uk or ring Pippa on 07891 590111.
