What do we do ?
We're a traditional ceilidh band, so we play Scottish and Irish music and song for ceilidhs, weddings, birthday parties, festivals, celebrations, fundraising events, school proms, Burns Suppers, St Andrews Night celebrations, Hogmanay parties - any occasion where people want to party and have a great time. When it's played well by experienced musicians, Scottish ceilidh music has an infectious bounce and makes for a great atmosphere.
We're a long-established band with lots of experience in providing Scottish entertainment. We also provide a full dance caller service - whatever is needed, from just reminding you of the steps, to walking through the dances for people who have never done them. We're very patient, good-natured, and we teach the steps clearly and very well! We can also call in a variety of languages for overseas visitors - over the years we've seen hundreds of French, Italian, Dutch, German, Spanish, even Turkish (and lots of other) wedding guests or visitors to Scotland having a great time once they learned the steps in their own language! Being involved is so much better than just sitting watching the Scots enjoying themselves!
We pride ourselves in liaising closely with all our clients. From the moment you contact us, you'll have a one-to-one link to either Lesley or Craig. We'll work with you to give exactly what you want. We'll discuss how best we can fit in to your existing plans, from the most suitable play-times to acting as event MC etc, but we're also full of fundraiser or celebration ideas and suggestions if you need them. We WILL give you what YOU want - not what suits us!
So if you're planning to hold a Scottish ceilidh, a wedding reception, a school prom or school exchange, a birthday or retirement celebration, a charity fundraiser event, tourist entertainment or whatever, and you're looking for a traditional rollicking Scottish ceilidh band - try the Skelpit Lugs! So far we've played for around 2000 events, so we know what we're doing!
The Skelpit Lugs play at the Cowie Miners Welfare hall for Stirling Canoe Club's annual ceilidh.
