We are a Birmingham folk dance band who have played for a variety of events both in the Midlands and further afield.

In the current environment we all have to be mindful of procedures put in to place to mitigate against the spread of covid19. As a consequence “the ceilidh band” suspended band rehearsals for much of the last 18 months or so to comply with government guidelines and to keep people safe. We carefully monitored the situation and resumed practise sessions relatively recently when the public health situation improved and we were permitted to resume activities. We did our first public performance recently following an enforced break of about 22 months. It was good to be able to perform once again – we enjoyed it very much as did our audience.

Keep your eyes on this website and our social media platforms for any future updates about our activities. We hope to have some scheduled events before too long but we will obviously take in to consideration any potential risk to individuals at social gatherings nearer the time to safeguard everyone concerned.

Stay safe – from everyone involved with “the ceilidh band.”
