Some of the bands I currently work with


The Tay Ceilidh Band & The Tay Duo


The Tay Ceilidh Band is the ideal band for your function; we will talk you through all the dances for those who need a wee refresher on the steps. We can even provide Ceilidh/Disco for a fantastic night of entertainment. The main emphasis on the Tay Ceilidh Band Is FUN.


The Tay Ceilidh Band can be booked as anything from a 2 to 5+ piece band depending on budget. You can have Accordion, Drums, Fiddle, Piano, Second Accordion, Bass, Electric Guitar, Bagpipes. The band is made up of some of Scotland's top professional musicians.


Performing as the Tay Duo with Callum Wallace on Guitar & Vocals and myself on Fiddle, we can provide music for Hotels, Golf Clubs, Bowling Clubs, Holiday Parks, Tours, Residential Homes and Private Parties etc. Callum has been working as a professional musician for over 30 years. He has travelled the length and breadth of Britain and also made various trips to Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Oman, India, Shetland, Orkney, and the Channel Islands. He always strives to keep the show lively and entertaining!


Sporran Again


Sporran Again is a popular five-piece Scottish Ceilidh band based in Dundee, Scotland performing celtic music in a fresh, contemporary style for Scottish ceilidh dancing to audiences all over the UK for weddings, parties, student functions, corporate events, festivals, and more!


Often described as the ‘super funky ceilidh five piece’, we have been wowing audiences to their feet both at home and abroad since 1997. With a line up including fiddle, flute, electric guitar, bass, and drums we draw upon Scotland’s wealth of traditional music, presenting it with our own contemporary flare. A typical evening of dancing with Sporran Again includes a good mix of well known Scottish ceilidh standards as well as an introduction to some newer favourites – all expertly guided by our enthusiastic dance caller ensuring that everyone feels confident joining in the fun, particularly if it is their first Scottish ceilidh dance experience. Stick around and let us show you how our fresh, funky, style is quite a departure from the usual – perfect if you’re looking for a contemporary take on the ‘traditional’ Scottish ceilidh…and for something a ‘wee bit’ out of the ordinary!
