I just wanted to send you and the band a small message to thank you so much for entertaining our guests at our annual dinner dance at Dunblane Hydro (29th October 2011). Everyone had a fantastic night and your band just rounded it off perfectly!  The band was excellent and the caller did a brilliant job; we had lots of fun and would definitely recommend you in the future. Hope you all enjoyed playing as much as we enjoyed dancing!

We have employed the musical talents of the Skelpit Lug Ceilidh Band for over 10 years now and have always been impressed with their punctuality, reliability and performance. We arrange our Senior School Ceilidhs around their availability! If you wish your event to be a huge success, I recommend you look no further than the Skelpit Lugs.

200 guests at Preston Park for our daughter's recent wedding (Auchterarder 13th August  2011) and we couldn't have asked for a better band.  Craig's expert calling made the Welsh contingent confident to joint the rest of us on the dance floor and we all had the most amazing evening which finished all too quickly! Such a good mixture of familiar ceilidh dances and some less usual ones. Thank you Skelpit Lug for making it so special.

Thank you Skelpit Lugs for taking part in the reception at the Dunmar House, Alloa, on 6th August at the wedding of Sarah and Robert.  Everyone had a great time. I appreciated your music, talking us through the dances in a relaxed manner and your selection of dances.  You were also sensitive to the lady who fell during a dance and coped with it very well. Thanks.

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.
