The Dancing Ledge
Based in Dorset - 4pc - Ceilidh - From £550
If you are looking for a band to give that special occasion a touch of magic and an injection of culture, look no further than the Dancing Ledge.
Celtic music, like most forms of traditional roots music, is not easy to play well; but when it is performed by the best exponents it has a compelling intensity that excites and is difficult to resist.
The Dancing Ledge have been performing at ceilids, barn dances, weddings, folk festivals, functions and special events for many years, and during that time have earned a growing reputation as one of the best in their field. This is not just down to experience and good musicianship……everyone in the band loves performing to live audiences, and gets a real buzz from the spontaneity that this infuses into the music.
The music can be tailored to your event with most clients asking for either Scottish or Irish music or a mix of both.
The Dancing Ledge are a four piece band comprising:-
Clive, Fiddle and Vocals. Clive is from Maghera, County Derry and is steeped in the Irish fiddle tradition having been taught to play at the age of seven.
Pete, Flute, Banjo and Guitar. Pete is a well rounded musician who has played in numerous established bands performing everything from Soul, Blues, Jazz, Rock and Traditional Folk. He has been playing Irish music since 1982.
Gordon, Guitar and Vocals. A fine guitarist and singer of Celtic songs and a songwriter of local repute.
Julian, Dance Caller and percussion. One of the best Dance Callers in the South and a good Bodhran player.
