Hull Ceilidh Band For Hire with great live music – a great Yorkshire knees up is guaranteed!

Planning a celebration ceilidh in Hull or the East Riding why not book the Hessle Ceilidh Band?

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.

Wedding Ceilidh Party Hessle East Yorkshire

We had a great Ceilidh at Hessle Town Hall on saturday night – the hall was decked beautifully with lots of bunting and balloons and the dancers though inexperienced were very enthusiastic, the Gay Gordons was a big hit as was the ipod disco at the end of the night. Calling was courtesy of Amanda Lowe who stood in for Steve Haswell our regular caller at very short notice. Steve was involved in a road accident in New Zealand so we send him our best wishes for a swift and complete recovery.
