I couldn't have been happier with the Skelpit Lugs, who played at our wedding in Edinburgh (Radisson Blu Hotel 30th July 2011). Craig was always prompt and helpful in replying to my emails in the weeks leading up to the event and on the night itself the Lugs were friendly and flexible. It was quite a small wedding and there were a lot of English and French guests not familiar with the dances but Craig helped to get everyone involved with some great calling in both languages. I would have no hesitation in recommending Skelpit Lugs if you need a band for your wedding.

I would like to give my warmest thanks to the Skelpit Lug Ceilidh Band for playing some excellent music at our Civic Reception on the 21April 2011 in the Royal George Hotel. It was a very special night as we were celebrating the 20th anniversary of the twinning agreement between Perth and the town of Cognac in France.


There were over 30 French visitors, many of whom spoke little English. They were delighted to be given directions and led through the dances by Craig, who speaks very good French.  This ensured that everyone, French and Scots, took part in the dances and that the Ceilidh was very successful indeed.


I am very happy to recommend the Skelpit Lug Ceilidh Band for any big occasion, but especially if there is a significant French contingent.

Many thanks to the Skelpit Lugs for playing for our group at the Stirling Management Centre on Saturday (4th June 2011) - the Lugs managed to get even the die-hard wallflowers and novices up and dancing, and folk really enjoyed themselves! One of our number video-ed the Shetland wedding reel and posted it up on the ITI ScotNet website, to general hilarity.

Thanks Skelpit Lugs for an amazing evening at the Victoria Halls in Dunblane.  The atmosphere that your music created for our wedding reception (30th April 2011) was brilliant and everyone had such a fantastic time! We’ll always remember and cherish that evening, thanks again!
