What’s the difference between a ceilidh, a twmpath and a barn dance?
Twmpath is the Welsh word for ceilidh, which is like a barn dance, only with less ‘yee-hahs’ and without the straw bales.
Can you do a Scottish/Irish/Welsh themed evening?
Oh yes - we’re well known for our Dashing White Sergeant! We’re also fond of Irish reels and Jac y Do, so just let us know what you want!
Do we need to know how to dance?
Definitely not! Our caller will explain each dance and keep talking you through the steps after the music starts – two left feet are not a problem, and you can be any age between 4 and 94!
Is it good for a wedding?
Fantastic! A ceilidh will mix all your guests up, can be danced by anybody, and ensures that all your guests will meet each other while having a great time. Tip for brides – have a dress that you can go backwards in! (We even provide safety pins if needed…)
How long do you play for?
For as long as you want! We’ll play for as long and as much as you want – there is no standard length – although if we’re still going at breakfast there may be a surcharge!
What do you need?
A normal electric socket and a table for the mixing desk, please. Refreshments and chairs are a welcome bonus!
What do we get?
All the band, the sound system, an experienced caller, and a great evening’s entertainment! We arrive in plenty of time to get set up, so it’s stress free for you too!
What do you cost?
We quote for each booking individually and it will vary a bit depending on how far we have to travel. We’re based in Cardiff and are happy to travel as far as you want – we’ve played in North Wales, West Wales, the Lake District and South London…
Do you have a dress code?
We always dress appropriately for the occasion and scrub up well when required. If you have anything specific in mind, please let us know – we can arrive in plaid shirts and cowboy hats, and will happily dress up as pirates given half a chance…
