Are you looking for a great Barn Dance or Ceilidh Band with a friendly skilled Caller for a Wedding, Birthday or Anniversary party, or for a public event, church or charity fund-raiser, or large corporate function? If so, you've come to the right place!

Would you like help with choosing the most suitable Band and Caller for your party or event? By using this website, all the hard work will be taken out of your search! There are a lot of Bands out there, and the quality and styles vary enormously.

Fiona’s experience of over 40 years in playing for and arranging bands for Scottish and Irish style Ceilidhs, English or American Barn Dances and Hoe Downs means she has great contacts with the most experienced UK Bands and Callers and can recommend the most suitable options for you, wherever your barn dance or ceilidh is taking place, even though Fiona is East Midlands based.

Fi offers a personalised efficient service, using her long-standing experience to check availability and book the Barn Dance or Ceilidh Band and Caller for you with minimum hassle, giving you best value for money, whatever your price-range.

High quality demo samples, info about the band and Caller and quotes are sent to you by email within about 24-48 hours of initial contact.

Usually, a duo, trio or quartet sized band plus Caller is offered, but if it is a very small party or if budget is a key issue, Fiona will offer a solo caller using good quality pre-recorded music or one musician and Caller.

Enlisting Fiona’s help avoids the risk of ending up with a poor quality band or an inappropriate style of music for your function, ensuring you have a terrific fun evening with your friends and family, dancing to good music and clearly called dance steps!

Please feel free to contact Fiona by email or phone to discuss your requirements.
