Some appreciative comments by past bookers of Ceilidh and Barn Dance Bands and Callers using this website:

"We booked these guys for a barn dance we were holding for a corporate event. They went down a storm! Managed to get a bunch of non-dancing folks out of their seats and up dancing all night. Really easy to follow moves and some fantastic music. Great communication before and running up to the event too, including their requirements for power and parking etc. Would 100% recommend them for any similar events!"
