I’m working on a list of things to Celebrate with the Hessle Ceilidh Band in East Yorkshire
Charity Fund Raising
Beltane or May Day
St. Andrew’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day
St Georges Day
St Davids Day
The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee
Here are some great reasons why you should choose a Ceilidh for your special event:
– 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! Once you’ve booked the band and explained the arrangements for the day mentioning any special announcements or musical moments that you want us to create you can relax knowing that the we can provide provide the perfect entertainment for your special occasion.
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 – for people who like a good old Yorkshire knees up!
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.
Can you think of anything we have missed I wonder? To contact the band email: firstname.lastname@example.org or ring Pippa on 7891 590111.
