Orkney Folk Festival
ceilidh dance band from the Perthshire area which now features the
Westray One Step among their varied dance sets, courtesy of a chance
encounter with an Orcadian hockey team in Dundee!!
SCOTTISH DAUGHTER- IN- LAW
kilts swirled, sporrans bobbed up and down as we danced and swung
to the lively tunes of the Gallivanters Ceilidh Band .
This exuberant Scottish Ceilidh was held in the Caledonian
Hall of the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh to celebrate the wedding
of our second son Toby and his lovely Scottish lass Penny.
Scottish Ceilidh dances
are wild and exuberant and seem to involve hundreds of people swinging
and swirling for ever and ever. We danced the Gay Gordons, Dashing White Sergeant, Flying Scotsman,
Strips of Willow, Irish and Scottish 8 hand reels and a Canadian
Barn Dance which Pennyís Mum remembered dancing during her summer
holidays on one Scotlandís western isles to the gramophone of Dougie
the Boatman! We had
the best fun and partied into the early hours."
Wedding Dunkeld House
a note to say a huge "Thank You" for your playing at our wedding at
Dunkeld House, the band were absolutely brilliant and did a great
job of getting everyone on the dance floor. All our guests said how
much they enjoyed the ceilidh and we thought it was the best wedding
party ever. With thanks and best wishes Eilidh Gillespie and Nick
