More about Irish Ceilidh Bands

About Irish Ceilidh Bands who play in Warwickshire

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 Warwickshire than you would get in a Pub in Ireland.

St Patrick’s day celebration in Warwickshire

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?

Warwickshire Venues

If your wedding or party is in Warwickshire , 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 Warwickshire 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 Warwickshire

Warwickshire conjures up countryside images of an undulating farming landscape with mature hedgerows and an abundance of woodland and leafy lanes. Attractive red brick is a common building material typical of many villages and farmhouses and is even seen in much older timber framed Tudor buildings. Warwickshire is perhaps most famously known for Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, and the countryside round about is undoubtedly beautiful, particularly along the willow edged river Avon. Our musicians have often played in Shakespeare Trust properties, and other venues in the region. But there is much more to Warwickshire than Stratford-upon-Avon and most of the county can offer locations for very pleasurable walking, although the south has the edge. Warwickshire's area extends from north to south in the region of 50 miles and is approximately 34 miles wide. It has three major rivers, which are the Avon, Leam and Tame. Dairy-farming and sheep have been important, and flax has been grown. A wide range of manufacturing industries include ribbons, gauzes, other silk fabrics and thread, the main centre for these being Coventry; hardware, cutlery, steam engines and firearms, particularly in Birmingham; and toys and glass.

Warwickshire is synonymous with Shakespeare, and Shakespeare with the music of the lute and other instruments of the period. We have several musicians and music groups who perform authentic music from the period, but often later classical music played by a string quartet is a more popular compromise. Modern day Warwickshire is just as likely to have party bands , function bands & covers bands performing. jazz bands were of particular interest to Prince Charles at the penultimate Royal Show. As everywhere in the UK ceilidh bands are always popular.

Our string quartets in warwickshire have played at Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and stately homes throughout Warwickshire. Jazz bands in warwickshire have played at the royal show and for private events. A strong tradition of English folk music is met by our ceilidh bands in warwickshire and barn dance bands in warwickshire wedding quartets in warwickshire.
