Ceilidh Dance Styles

Ceilidh bands are very much of the Celtic flavour and can be used to describe either a Scottish or an Irish gathering. Originally these were just impromptu meetings held in cottages where people would sing, dance, recite poetry and tell stories - basically what we would call a bit of a get-together. The Ceilidh is now known more as just a dance in a hall or other suitable venue.

The usual line up for thses kind of events are accordions, guitars and fiddles with the occasional set of drums or a Bodhran. The music is usually of a traditional Scottish or Irish flavour with traditional dances.
