The TDS Ceilidh / Barn Dance Band

The (TDS) Ceilidh band has a mission to bring uplifting and exciting ceilidh dancing to any celebratory event. Adam (Banjo/mandolin), Jerry (fiddle) and Adrian (guitar) have a wealth of experience between them playing the ceilidhs, folk clubs, sessions and festival stages of England, Ireland, Europe and further afield.

The band performs with the help of experienced callers who provide clearly lead and guided dances which all event goers can take part in and enjoy. Their music is mostly from the Irish tradition, but it also features Scottish and other Celtic musical traditions. In addition, they are happy to provide a wide range of dynamic and exciting musical performances for playing before or between the dancing sessions.


Wedding"Adam and his fellow musicians played a ceilidh at our wedding - they did a wonderful job and all 120 guests danced till they had blisters and had a GREAT time! The caller had a charming manner when explaining the moves to everyone: clear but relaxed and friendly. The whole band felt like they were part of the party. In advance of the event, Adam was very sensitive and understanding about what we wanted from the ceilidh and was excellent at liaising with the on-site sound person to make sure the set-up went smoothly on the day. It was a pleasure working with them from start to triumphant finish."
Wedding"A MASSIVE hit. Such a hit, in fact, that our guests asked them to keep playing all night and we never got on to the 3 hour dance playlist I'd spent days compiling! The caller had great presence and enthusiasm and got everyone dancing like seasoned highlanders very quickly. I hadn't met Adam before the day itself, although we'd spoken on the phone and exchanged emails about what we wanted, yet he and his band fitted in perfectly to the feel and style of the event. They were very flexible about timings, especially when our caterers over ran and they had to wait an hour longer than planned before they could start playing. I couldn't fault them; they were perfect."
Wedding"They have heart, pack a punch and had everyone on their feet laughing and dancing; they gave us a Ceilidh at our wedding reception that was a raucously good time. Full of warmth and professionalism to boot, we can't recommend the band enough."
