The Barndance Agency & Irish Events
We provide Irish Ceilidh (kaylee) Bands for all types of functions mainly Weddings, P.T.A.'s, Anniversaries, Fund Raising Events etc!
Unlike the Scottish Ceilidhs there are not many people who will know Irish Dances. The three that come to mind are The Bridge of Athlone, The Waves of Tory and The Siege of Ennis. Apart from these the rest of the evening would be taken up with other fun dances of no particular ethnic origin but done to Irish Jigs, Reels, Hornpipes and Polkas. The band would also be able to play a Waltz and may be a slow Air. The band would usually be Fiddle led and have a Whistle, Bhodran (boran) which is a Hand Held Drum played with a stick and a Tenor Banjo. Some bands also have Accordian and Bass Guitar. All these types of bands come with an experienced Caller who will encourage the guests to get up on the floor, will quickly walk through the dance before the music starts and then call reminds over the top of the music.
