FAQ 15 Do all Ceilidh or Barn Dance Bands sing songs as well as playing the instrumentals for the dancing?
No, not all bands sing songs. If you want a Band which does songs as well as playing music for ceilidh dancing, do please make it clear on your initial enquiry, and check that a band sings. This will clearly determine which band will be most suitable for your function. Some bands play and sing some traditional Irish and Scottish songs, and a few of the more professional Ceilidh bands do excellent covers of 50s, 60s and 70s country and rock ‘n’ roll numbers, but many Ceilidh and Barn Dance bands just play music for the ceilidh dances.
