A Reet Yorkshire Ceilidh for Family Celebrations

Here we have a rather lovely set of images from a very special silver wedding celebration in Kirkella. The photos were taken by award winning photographer Rich Dufy-Howard they give an insight into the fun, excitement and energy a Hessle Ceilidh Band performance generates – at the bottom of the post you can read the thank you letter we received after the gig. You can see more of Rich’s work at richarddh.com

Dear All in the Hessle Ceilidh Band, Thank you so much for the excellent entertainment you provided for our Silver Wedding celebration. Everyone had such an enjoyable evening. We were very impressed by your musical ability and the calling for the dances was very clear. The dances were a good mix suitable for young and older guests, from being swung round in a basket to a more sedate pat-a-cake polka! Many of our guests commented on how much fun the evening was and I would thoroughly recommend you to anyone who wants a lively and entertaining party. Best wishes, Suzanne To book the Hessle Ceilidh Band email hessleceilidhband@yahoo.co.uk or call Pip on 07891590111

Is it a ceili or ceilidh?

At last nights silver wedding celebrations in Kirkella village hall we were asked – is it a ceili or ceilidh?

 It’s both, but it depends which country you are in, or rather which Gaelic you are speaking. My Irish dictionary has it as Ceili.

It’s Ceili in Ireland (or with Irish people) or a Ceilidh with whisky if you are in Scotland (or with Scottish people)!

To be frank either spelling is good! What it means is a great time with lots of dancing and fun  Anyway here are acouple of images from last nights Ceili or Ceilidh

– Well firstly it’s really good clean energetic fun with a broad appeal to all age groups. The nature of a Ceilidh makes friends of strangers and is a great ice breaker!
