Hire this band!!!! They were amazing!!! They are such talented musicians and showmen. My wedding reception was unforgettable and I heard it called "epic" and that is mostly thanks to this band. They were also very flexible so they will be up for anything!! They showed up for the outdoor/tented reception and didn't even bat and eye when they had to set up all their equipment on pave stones. I have also seen this band live at a few bars and they took that same energy to our reception. Love this band.

Re-experience the birth of rock and roll, rockabilly, doo wop, country, rhythm and blues and even pop! Check out Daddy-O!, put on your blue suede shoes, comb-in your pomade. Relive the fifties and have some fun!

The Band Formed in 2005, Songs for Ceilidh combine Irish, Scottish, and Canadian Maritime Celtic influences with American heartland roots and acoustic pop/rock. Their original music includes traditionally inspired Celtic melodies and modern narratives, with an emphasis on high energy, upbeat rhythms. Their name says it all; Ceilidh [Kay-Lee] is a foot-stomping, high-energy party. In other words, a rip-roaring good time! “You are never quite sure what they are going to throw in,” says a fan. “One minute, they are playing ‘Whisky in the Jar’, and the next the fiddle is belting out the solo from ‘Stairway to Heaven’. It makes for a very interesting show!” The four band members each bring their own specific influence. Hailing from Canada, Scott sings and plays the acoustic guitar, bodhran, and tin whistle. Bryan plays fiddle with a blend of American and Celtic styles, sings backup, and plays guitar. Chuck keeps the music moving with his steady twelve-string and banjo strumming, while Jon ties it altogether with Djembes, bongos, and any other percussion the music needs. The four unite to bring a truly unique sound to the music. The Philosophy Songs For Ceilidh was not formed to be a cover band. Their interpretation of traditional Celtic classics owes more to Cape Breton influences than it does to traditional Irish. While respecting the original music, their arrangements reflect a modern sensibility and desire to ‘keep it moving’! Their ever growing body of original works reflects this same balance of tradition and innovation. While they bring a solid repertoire of traditional Celtic classics, don’t expect to hear ‘Danny Boy’ or ‘Irish Eyes’. Lively and fun is the emphasis. Upbeat classics and originals, with the occasional love song or ballad, provide a sound, which appeals to all. “We’re looking for people to enjoy themselves as much as we do! That’s what it’s all about!” The Resume Since 2005, Songs For Ceilidh has become a local favorite in Massachusetts and are known in Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Maine. Performances include the Worcester Irish Festival, the Worcester St. Paddy’s Day Parade, and the 2008 Worcester Flag Day Festival. They have also performed in numerous town concerts and local pubs and have been featured on the Internet, local radio, and television. The Music In 2009, Songs For Ceilidh released their first full-length CD “Beneath the Waves”. Highlander Radio called it ”...a swell of deep-sea musical Celtic heaven...ten tracks of Celtic bliss.” In 2008, Songs For Ceilidh’s demo CD was released. Two of the songs, ‘Jolly Rover’ and ‘The Catch’, both became most requested songs in the month of April on Highlander Radio. In St. Paddy’s Day 2008, the Band’s performance at Mickey Cassidy’s Irish Pub was recorded, and selected tracks are available at their website. Today, the band is actively writing and preparing for their second CD. Songs For Ceilidh is available for all types of engagements. Contact the band using the information below.
