The CG Barndance and Ceilidh band

A 3 piece band including caller. Their repertoire is varied; the backbone of their sound is traditional Irish and Scottish tunes, but they also source tunes from further afield - Venezuela, Brittany, America etc. They are a dance band with the emphasis firmly on fun. Reliable, friendly and adaptable, the musicians of the CG Band promise to bring everyone together on the dancefloor for fun, laughter and a great time!

This band offer bespoke, professional entertainment. There is an infectious joy about their music - which is spontaneous, raw and real. The humorous way in which everyone is included and encouraged to dance makes for a unique experience. Many people who were convinced that ceilidh dancing was not for them have been persuaded to have a go and later complimented The CG Band for introducing them to it! Their members are Al, one of the best folk fiddler in the country and a respected sound engineer; Di, a talented cello player and dance caller; and Dan on mandocello. Dan is a talented songwriter too and when appropriate will sing!


Wedding"We hired the CG Band for our wedding and they were blooming brilliant! A great mix of dances that were a good combination of fun and hilarity. They did a great job of gauging the room, getting everyone involved (not that much encouragement was needed - our guests were loving it!) and providing some additional silliness through hilarious banter and commentary on the night. In short, the CG Band made the night - we would thoroughly recommend them!"
Wedding"The CG Band were great with us! We got behind during our wedding day, but the CG band set up quickly and smoothly and we were soon underway. They were flexible and acommodating with their schedule for the evening, they were enthusiastic, the music was great, and they even managed to get EVERYONE up at the end for the last dance! Thank you for a great end to our wedding!"
Party"Di is a particularly good caller. She does a great job of making people feel at ease when invited onto the floor, and she is good at persuading people politely that they really should get off their backsides and dance NOW!"
Wedding"Truly fantastic. Thank you so much for making our wedding day special! The guests loved it and they all joined in thanks to your excellent rapport! We would highly recommend this group to anyone. Thank you so much! - Alex and Sarah."
