Licence to Ceilidh

Young, Energetic, Professional 5-piece Ceilidh Band!

Licence to Ceilidh are a young and energetic five-piece ceilidh band based in London and the South and available for hire throughout the UK and beyond. ...Their speciality is Scottish Ceilidh (Gay Gordon's, Dashing White Sargeant, Eightsome Reels etc) but they also offer the standard English/Irish Ceilidh dances as well, and provide an evenings entertainment that is suitable for all levels, from complete beginners to seasoned ceilidh dancers!

From Weddings, to Student events and Private Parties - as the only professional ceilidh band in this region, Licence to Ceilidh’s full-time, accomplished musicians provide a level of sophistication to your event that you won't get with other bands!

The five piece line up of Caller+Fiddle, Fiddle, Guitar/Keys, Bass and Drums combines the dynamic fiddle styles of a traditional ceilidh band with the modern, funky rhythm section of a function band. They use the highest quality P.A.(QSC/HK/Allen&Heath/Neumann) with current PAT test certificates and public liability insurance and bring their own LED lighting for the band. Monthly sold-out public ceilidhs at Cecil Sharp House in London are a testament to the universal appeal of this young, exciting band.

They can also provide a number of optional extras: The most popular is their after ceilidh DISCO - cheaper than booking a separate DJ! Or they can transform into another format for live background music before your ceilidh - for this LTC can provide a solo musician including Piper, Flautist, Jaz Pianist and more; Classical quartet or Jazz trio, Celtic duo's including fiddle+guitar / flute+piano / fiddle+fiddle etc.
