CAROL – Event Organiser

Many thanks to the Hessle Ceilidh Band for helping me and my family / friends celebrate my 30th birthday, my sisters 28th birthday and Richard and my engagement in style. The array of instruments was fascinating and the music was brilliant and so easy to dance to. Thanks to the callers energy and clear instructions, everyone was up and dancing every dance – the videos show everyone smiling and laughing and really having fun. There were a few who were worried about ceilidh dancing beforehand but by the end of the first dance all concerns were gone, mainly thanks to the friendly and infectious enthusiasm of the band … and the very helpful demonstrations! We all had a great night and I have been asked many times where I found such a good ceilidh band, so I have been pointing them to your website. Thanks again, and hopefully see you again soon. Alison, Lindsey, Jane, Graham, Richard and Mike from Lockington.

Ceilidh Band In East Yorkshire

Planning a Ceilidh, Wedding celebration, Retirement or Birthday party in East Yorkshire? 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 or ring 07891 590111.
