Further Info

Licence to Ceilidh are a young, energetic, professional ceilidh and covers band.

Their unique combination of traditional tunes & ceilidh dances with a modern, funky rhythm appeals to everyone and their accomplished, professional musicians provide the right level of sophistication and high energy entertainment to any event.

Licence to Ceilidh are wedding entertainment specialists but are highly experienced with all types of events from corporate or charity functions to birthdays and student nights. Whatever the event they’re the perfect party band for you!

Their 16 years experience in providing quality music and expert calling is what gets them asked back for repeat bookings with prestigious clients such as Sting, BBC, London Scottish and Apple and what’s made them renowned as the top London ceilidh band!

They specialise in Scottish Ceilidh including favourite dances like the Gay Gordons and Strip the Willow, but can perform dances and music from all over England, Ireland and Scotland.

In additional to being the best ceilidh band around, Licence to Ceilidh can now finish off the night with a set of upbeat celtic style cover songs, from Uptown Funk and Wake Me Up to Superstition and 500 miles. The standard ceilidh & covers band 6-piece line up: caller/singer, fiddle x2, chords, bass and drums combines the dynamic fiddle styles of a traditional ceilidh band with the modern, funky rhythm section of a function band. But they often play as a larger band with additional fiddle/accordion/flute.
