Ceilidh Knights are one of the North East leading professional and fun ceilidh bands. The ceilidh band was formed in the North East in 2002 when Gordon (the caller) relocated here from Scotland where he had been running Ceilidhs since the late 1980s. Ceilidhs are a great fun way to start a party and are especially good for weddings where 2 sides of the family and friends may not know each other. A Ceilidh is a fun way of getting everyone to mix and just get that party started straight after the 1st dance. Full demonstrations and instructions are given for every dance and it doesn't matter if the moves are all perfect or not, just so long as everyone has a go and joins in the fun.

Ceilidh Knights provides music for weddings, parties, birthdays, functions and corporate events. From the North East's largest castles, hotels and stately homes, to village halls and marquees, Ceilidh Knights have performed in well over 300 venues around Newcastle, Northumberland, Durham and North Yourkshire.

Consisting of an experienced Scottish caller with well over 30 years of Ceilidh demonstrating experience, fiddle, keyboards and drums, Ceilidh Knights provides the perfect ceilidh experience for experienced Ceilidh goers or complete novices keen to have a go. In addition to traditional and modern ceilidh music, the players can play popular, Ballroom and Modern Sequence Dance music giving the opportunity for a mix of musical styles to please a variety of tastes followed by our live covers band, DJ or even Karaoke if you really must.
