The World's Rockiest Ceilidh Band

Scottish traditional reels and jigs with a rocky twist, the tunes mashed up with rock songs and riffs. The Dashing White Sergeant merged with Pink Floyd, Strip the Willow with Kasabian and Deep Purple and other grooves and feels. Extensive repertoire of traditional Ceilidh dances from jigs, reels, waltzes, marches. Full of surprises they have many unusual and bizarre ceilidh dances if you're up for it!  All dances are professionally "called", and if you're all ceilidhed out, they have a repertoire of rock and pop covers, all played live with no backing tracks. All mistakes are real! This all done with a wicked sense of humour.

Tunes murdered, Guests insulted indiscriminately. No prisoners taken. Made in Scotland.

The band “call” or give instructions for all the above dances so that everyone is included. Most of the ceilidh dances are very easy to learn very quickly.  So if you can’t tell the difference between a Dashing White Sergeant and a Haggis Supper, the band's expert dance caller will have you reeling around the dancefloor like an expert!

 The band also play for many Scottish Country Dances if guests know the steps. Some examples are:

  • Hamilton House
  • The Duke of Perth
  • Reel of the 51st Division
