Song List

Nightingale Ceilidh Band is sensitive to the occasion and responsive to the mood of the audience. If you wish they may concentrate on one particular style e.g. Scottish or Irish throughout. 

Nightingale Ceilidh Band are equally at home doing a song-based performance as they are playing tunes for a dance. Bandleader Mick built his extensive repertoire of songs during many years performing in public. Mick says, "We will gladly do requests if we know them and I'll even try to learn a new song if there's time". Mick continued, "There is no formal set list because we really enjoy working with the audience, finding out what's popular and 'going with the flow'."
