About Bass Rock Ceilidh Band
10 reviews

Booked 13 times on FixTheMusic

Bass Rock Ceilidh Band are a truly electric four-piece ceilidh band with fiddle, bass, electric guitar and drums (electric too), adding an exciting, modern twist to traditional Ceilidh music.

You will always have fun at a ceilidh, whether you are a learner, a regular ceilidh dancer, or you’re watching from the sidelines laughing at the capers of the participants.

Ceilidhs are very social affairs even if you or your partner has two left feet!

More information about Bass Rock Ceilidh Band

Our repertoire is as long as Nessie’s tale and don’t worry if you don’t know the dances as we will guide you with full instructions for each one.

Our dances are quite easy and you’ll have so much fun, even wee old Auntie Maureen, or grumpy Sam from finance, might be persuaded to get up and have a go (in fact they might even dance together!).

We bring the house down in all venues – from castles to canvases, from hotels to huts – in fact any event or place that wants to enjoy an evening of merriment with exciting music.

A DJ is always included to play your favourite song for the first dance and later in the evening if required.

We like to put the ‘ding’ in ‘wedding’, and the ‘corr!’ in corporate’, so give us a call to make sure your evening will genuinely rock! (NB: Our music is much better than our puns!)

Here are just some of the locations where we have been booked by clients on FixTheMusic for weddings and events...

  • St Andrews
  • Duns
  • Manderston House
  • Lochgelly
  • Motherwell
  • Lauriston Hall

We're based in Bathgate, West Lothian, but happy to travel all over Scotland, including Edinburgh, Glasgow and further afield.

"Dear Mary, Just a wee Thank You for providing the music at Ken's 60th birthday. The band was brilliant. We had great feedback and everyone really enjoyed themselves. You were great for beginners and experts alike - we had a couple of guests from Australia and NZ and it was great to show them some traditional hospitality. Thanks again, Erin and Laura."

"I booked Bass Rock Ceilidh Band (2 piece option) to play at my mother in laws 90th birthday party recently. The contact between Mary and myself was excellent and she reassured me that everything would go according to plan on the night of the event. It certainly was, with the perfect mix of ceilidh and disco. The band were fantastic and encouraged our guests to join in the dances with their helpful instructions. Everyone commented on how great the band were and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fantastic night of entertainment. Thanks again."

"My wife and I booked Bass Rock Ceilidh Band for our wedding and were thrilled with what we got. I was really impressed with how tight the band are and Mary's playing and calling on fiddle was outstanding. They provide a fresh dynamic sound without the need of an accordionist. Great value for money, accommodating and put on a fantastic night. Not to be missed. Cheers, from Stuart & Ellen."

"If anyone is looking for a ceilidh band can I recommend Bass Rock Ceilidh Band. They are amazing! Half of my guests were Scottish and the other half were from Liverpool so I wanted a ceilidh sandwich (ceilidh, disco, ceilidh). I explained this to my band and they worked with me to find the perfect music for my evening. They were both professional and accommodating. My friends were singing and playing my first dance and they allowed them to use their equipment. The night went smoothly with the ceilidh band explaining the dances before they begun. Everyone commented on how amazing the music was and how fun the ceilidh was. As a musician myself I was delighted at the high level of musicianship by all the musicians in the band. These guys know their stuff! I recommend them very highly. Thanks again guys for making my night so special. Adele and Stuart"
