5 stars - The Blazing Ceilidh are Highly Recommended booked The Blazing Ceilidh for their Wedding in Fife August 2019

“The best band that we could have hired for our wedding! The drums add so much energy and the whole band was very personable and interacted with our guests which made the overall experience even more fun. About 95% of our guests had never even heard of ceilidh before but that didn’t prove to be a challenge for the caller at all. We would highly recommend this young, energetic and very professional band for any ceilidh occasion. Thank you!!”
