”…… and the 'calling' perfect. It's such a good way to encourage people onto the dance floor and many people commented on how much fun it was.” - Eleanor and Zach

Rag’n’Reel is our full ceilidh band playing a range of music from French-Canadian reels through to the more traditional English jigs, hornpipes and polkas. We can provide music for a complete event, including songs and tunes to suit the occasion whilst guests arrive, leading into a full barn dance.

For a party or special event we would play as a 3 or 4-piece (as appropriate), adding violin, keyboards, flute or other instruments to our line-up; whilst for smaller events, workshops or WI evenings we can play as a simple duo, using midi on the accordion to create a full ‘band’ sound.
