Known for our vibrant and energetic sound, we bring you the very best in live Scottish Ceilidh Music and since 2006, we have played for weddings and events all over the country – the classic trio of Accordion, Fiddle and Drums, giving the perfect atmosphere for a fun night of ceilidh dancing!
With a vast wealth of experience, Paul will guide you through the process of planning the entertainment to make sure that you have a brilliant, enjoyable evening to remember.
The combination of Accordion, Fiddle and Drums provides a dynamic, well balanced sound for a superb night of Ceilidh Dancing for your wedding night. Other line-ups can easily be arranged according to your requirements.
Choosing your first dance can be a tricky task, and you can either have a song which is special to you, or dance to the band for a ‘first waltz’. This is an opportunity for your guests to take photographs before being invited up to join the bride and groom for the ceilidh dancing.
All of the ceilidh dances can be called out so that your guests can all join in even if they have never done ceilidh dancing before, and the popular favourites are covered such as The Gay Gordons, Strip the Willow, Dashing White Sergeant, Flying Scotsman, Military Two-Step, Eightsome Reel, Canadian Barn Dance, as well as some less well known, but equally fun dances.
The Ceilidh usually finishes up with a big Orcadian Strip the Willow to bring everybody back on the floor with the bride and groom at the top of the set to start things off.
HotScotch can provide a Disco Package to compliment the wedding ceilidh so whether you want ceilidh music all evening, or a mixture of ceilidh and disco, HotScotch will keep the party going.
A vast library of music covering all eras up to the latest chart hits, will ensure that every taste can be catered for. Requests are very welcome on the night, and if there are particular songs that you would like played, you can provide a list for the DJ in advance. It can be difficult to judge the balance of ceilidh and disco beforehand, but HotScotch are experienced in gauging the crowd and are entirely flexible on the night, so as to guarantee you and your guests have a fabulous night.
