In addition all ceilidh dances are called by keyboard player and 6 times World Highland Dancing Champion, Deryck Mitchelson, in a such a fun way that even those that have never done Ceilidh dancing before will want to take to the floor.
Classic rock covers include Clapton, U2, the Rolling Stones, Brian Adams, Queen, Motown and soul hits as well as “golden oldies” from Sinatra, Elvis Tom Jones and the Beatles.
 
Younger audiences will be thrilled with versions of songs from current favorites such as Snow Patrol, Kings of Leon and Maroon Five and so many more. The versatility of music is amazing!
