Durham University Ceilidh Band

The folk society has a lively and enthusiastic ceilidh band that can be counted on to make any party fun and thoroughly amusing. It is made up of talented and experienced musicians from the university, whose youthful vim and imagination endow them with the knowledge of how a good ceilidh band should sound!



A ceilidh is ideal entertainment for post-formal college ents, society and college balls, private parties or any special event. We hold our own ceilidhs in the DSU every term, and we have played for several college Burns Nights, DUOS balls and the Hild Bede Beer Fest, to name a few examples.

If you are interesting in booking us for an event, please send us an email and we will give you a price quote. You needn't worry about hiring a "caller" (person who instructs the dancers) separately as we have our own! We are also available to play for official charity ceilidhs.


Joining the band

We hold annual auditions - anyone is welcome to try out! If you would like to be part of the band do please send us an email and we'll will inform you of the next audition.
