More about Irish Ceilidh Bands

About Irish Ceilidh Bands who play in Northamptonshire

There are many styles of Irish Ceilidh Band and you should think about whether you are wanting a band who play only specialist Irish music, or one that has a wide Irish repertoire, but can also play other musical styles for variety.

Also consider the instruments in the band’s line up. If you go to a Session in a Pub in Ireland you are likely to find a wide range of instruments being played. But some people have their own ideas of what an Irish band should be like, and there certainly are some instruments that are more traditional than others. So you may be expecting a more traditional band line up for an Irish band in Northamptonshire than you would get in a Pub in Ireland.

St Patrick’s day celebration in Northamptonshire

St Patrick’s day celebrations are held all over the world. Many include an Irish band, but consider what kind you are envisaging. Do you want a St Patrick’s Day Ceilidh, where guests are going to dance, usually to an instrumental band with no singer. Do you want instrumental music to listen to, as in a St Patrick’s day Irish Pub Session? Or do you want your guests to join in singing traditional Irish songs with an Irish folk singing band for your St Patricks day event?

Northamptonshire Venues

If your wedding or party is in Northamptonshire , this could have an influence on the style of Irish Ceilidh Band that you would be appropriate. If most of the guests at the Ceilidh are not Irish, a band that does Irish music, but can also throw in a few Scottish or American tunes and dances may give the best option. However, if the guests are mostly Irish, or members of a dance club, then the pure specialist Irish band may be more appropriate. Also remember that your guests in Northamptonshire are not going to be doing River Dance style step dancing, that takes years to learn. They will be dancing in sets with a caller instructing them in easy to learn dances and perhaps including dances like ‘the Siege of Ennis’ if there are some more experienced dancers there. You will find both kinds of bands on these pages. Brows through them or if you prefer, send an enquiry specifying what you are looking for and we will email you some suggested bands.

About Northamptonshire

Northamptonshire is situated in the middle of England, and has more borders with surrounding counties than any other county in the country. It is approximately 60 miles long and 25 miles wide. Six major rivers run through Northamptonshire, and they are the Nen, Welland, Ouse, Avon, Leam and Cherwell.

Traditionally it has been a county of cattle, horse and sheep rearing, with associated butter and cheese making. Woad for dyeing was grown and there was also a sprinkling of orchards. Northamptonshire was not a large centre of manufacturing, but silk stockings weaving, lace-making and wool-spinning took place. Additionally shoes were made at Northampton and Wellingborough.
