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.
