“The band is amazing, so much fun and got all the guests involved. The caller made it really easy for people who had never done a Ceilidh to join in. Every member of the band was really friendly, they are really talented and we couldn't recommend them highly enough.”

“Just wanted to drop you a wee email to say a huge thanks to the band for a wonderful evening that made our wedding unforgettable! Brilliant atmosphere and such a great sound from a trio!! We were also very surprised at how you managed to get even the most left footed guests up during the course of the evening! Brill band and hope we get to hear you again!”

“I booked this band for my daughter's wedding. They were approachable and professional, and many of our guests who had not previously attended a ceilidh highlighted how much they enjoyed the experience, also commenting on how the members of the band were happy to talk and answer questions from guests that approached them. I would highly recommend The Manchester Ceilidh Trio and I thank them once again for providing their services for what was a very special and memorable day.”
