White Rose Ceildh
White Rose Ceilidh are a group of professional musicians who have been performing as a ceilidh band for 10 years. In this time, they have developed a strong reputation and are now one of the most in-demand bands on the UK folk festival circuit.
The 6-piece play a mix of traditional and self-penned tunes which are given a heavy rock edge with playful arrangements and driving dance rhythms. This is all mixed up in an engaging, high-octane stage show that frequently leaves audiences cheering for more.
Ceilidhs are an excellent way to get guests up on the floor and dancing together. They help enhance an event and provide a memorable focal point with an uplifting atmosphere. The band’s charming and charismatic caller will explain all the dances, so no prior experience is necessary. All ages can get in involved!
Line up of the band includes 6 musicians:
Ceilidh Caller + Melodeon
Ceilidh times can be flexible to fit around your needs. A typical evening could include 3 x 45 minute ceilidh sets or variations thereof until 11pm.
PA is available to hire once the ceilidh is concluded for an additional fee. Please enquire for details.

"For our wedding on 22nd April 2018 we had the absolute pleasure of having Blackbeard's Tea Party as our ceilidh band. They are an amazing band and had everyone up dancing throughout the ceilidh. If your planning on a ceilidh for your wedding then look no further they were professional throughout and we couldn't have asked for anything more!"
