Ceilidh Band with caller and DJ in North East England


Here we have some example videos where you can watch us at live gigs. We demonstrate every dance and then encourage as many people as possible onto the floor and all walk through the steps together before the band plays and our caller (Gordon) continues to give instructions for as long as is required - until most people have got the hang of it.



The Ceilidh Knights band playing The Dashing White Sergeant at a wedding at Le Petit Chateau in Otterburn, Northumberland. This is a good example of dancing as many of the guests are from Bonnie Scotland and have been Ceilidh dancing since their early school days. Gordon calling and playing keyboards, Jonathan on fiddle and Les on Drums.




This is an except from Andrew and Sarah's wedding in the Treehouse in Alnwick Gardens with short sections of Strip the Willow, Gay Gordons, Dashing White Sergeant, st Bernards Waltz, Virginia Reel and Canadian Barn dance. This is a good example of dancing as most of the guests have been to many Ceilidhs and know the steps.
