Reel of Fortune

  Ceilidh Band

We have experience playing at weddings, corporate ceilidhs, festivals, recitals and dinner entertainment. Along with playing the music, we call every dance with humour and enthusiasm, so beginners have no excuse for not dancing!


In many of our sets, we include a "ceilidh cover" so you should not be surprised if you find yourself dancing to a song by Avicii or even Abba!


We can also provide a DJ set with 1000's of tracks to play with, everything from the 60's to present chart.



We have our own equipment which includes a full PA system, mixing desk, microphones and lighting.  All of our equipment is P.A.T. certified and the certificate can be shown upon request. 


A typical ceilidh will include:



Gay Gordons

Canadian Barn Dance 

Military Two Step

Hooligans Jig 

The Circassian Circle 

Dashing White Sergeant

Flying Scotsman

Virgina Reel 

Cumberland Square Eight

Strip The Willow

Orcadian Strip the Willow


Sometimes we like to introduce less well known dances such as:


Scottish Polka  

Highland Schottische

Swedish Masquerade 

Eightsome Reel

Riverside Jig

The Cartwheel Jig

Knights, Horses and Cavaliers 

Various Waltzes


We are always adding new traditional music to our repertoire.

We love to throw some more popular songs into our sets; we like to call these ceilidh covers!
