Contraband is normally a five-piece Ceilidh band that can play English, Irish, American and Scottish dances for whatever the occasion, Weddings, Anniversarys, Birthdays or Fund Raising events.
A popular Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) or Barn Dance can include; Shannon Bells, The Bridge of Athlone, Drops of Brandy, Flying Scotsman, Gay Gordon’s, Strip the Willow,
Haste to the Wedding and The Dashing White Sergeant and many more.
Take your partner by the hand and spin across the floor to the instantly memorable tunes.
Music is provided by a traditional Ceilidh band with instruments which could include a mixture of accordion, fiddle, bass guitar, 6 string acoustic/electric guitars, drums, keyboards, lighting
and of course, a very experienced caller.
The band will always provide a Caller, who will talk everybody through the steps first,
allowing any beginners to join in the fun.
Our music can be adapted for either the experienced dancer
or a newcomer to a Ceilidh evening.
