The Cragganmore Ceilidh Band did not fail to disappoint! They played at one of the University of St Andrews’ Charity Balls and they ensured we all danced into the night! Dances were clearly called, there was a mix of old and new ones (even for the Scots!), the music was amazing and very lively, and everyone had the best time! I would definitely recommend! Thank you!

We had the pleasure of being at a birthday ceilidh where the band was playing. The music was terrific for dancing to, but the volume was such that those not on the floor were able to chat. Interaction with guests was excellent; great fun was had by all!

Cragganmore recently played at my Daughter and Son-In-Law’s wedding at Balbirnie house. They couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating before and during the event. Their playing is of an extremely high standard with a really fun energy. They played for exactly the right amount of time and took a couple of breaks so we could get our breath back. The dance floor was very busy, and everyone had a fantastic night celebrating. The perfect band for the perfect Scottish wedding. Thank you Cragganmore!
