Playing for dancing can stretch you as a musician, but can also be one of the most rewarding musical experiences you can have. The Ceilidh Experience is a chance for anyone interested in traditional and folk music to play in a band and play at a ceilidh. During the sessions you’ll learn tunes and come together as small ceilidh bands, getting ready to perform at a final event for dancers and folk fans of all ages.

You’ll be supported in the sessions by experienced professional tutors and ceilidh band performers, have the opportunity to practice with a ‘caller’ and perform on a professional stage and learn how to perform acoustically and with amplification. For any instrument, but acoustic instruments especially welcome. Participants should already be able to play tunes from memory, ideally at ’dance speed’ and be prepared to do some tune practice between sessions.
