"The Blue Hat Ceilidh band were a great choice for our wedding evening. They got everyone up on the dancefloor and were so much fun! Calls were easy to follow, which was especially great for our international guests experiencing their first ceilidh. Would highly recommend this band to showcase the best of Northumberland!"

Reviews of the Band

"I had a fantastic 40th birthday party, thanks to this band, they worked brilliantly with the mixture of talents at my party, everyone had a blast trying their best and most definitely had an enjoyable and humerous evening. One I'll not forget, it will stay with me for life. Thanks to Rachael and the band for making it so special, I'd definitely recommend them"

"What a fantastic band! We had a family party of mixed ages and wanted everyone to be able to participate. Robin and Rachael patiently led us through the steps for each ceilidh dance and were very adaptable for our numbers and abilities, changing formations and allowing us plenty of rest times when needed. It was great fun and everyone loved it. Would thoroughly recommend this friendly band to enhance anyone's celebration event"
