My husband and I recently finally managed to celebrate our wedding reception this last weekend, 2 years after our initial date was cancelled due to covid. We chose Hiltop Ceilidh band after seeing them at another event and they have supported us through the pain of 2 attempts and 1 successful reception. The calling is always excellent, they have a fantastic repertoire of dances and music, including some of our favourite pieces such as Calliope House, as played by Alasdair Fraser. Everyone at the wedding loved the ceilidh and thought they were fantastic!
Organising the wedding without much certainty on covid made this much more stressful and we really appreciated that James and the band were willing to be flexible, offering “bubble dancing” in case there were restrictions, which they had designed and tested out throughout the lockdown. They even tested out some ideas in a zoom ceilidh during the second lockdown – which we attended from our living room.
They are lovely to work with, we will recommend them to anyone and everyone who wants a ceilidh!

Hilltop Ceilidh played at our wedding in Sussex and were brilliant. They ably guided our 150 chaotic guests through the Ceilidh and everyone had a brilliant time. Just perfect to get everyone on the dancefloor and having fun. We then used their sound system to play our own music for the disco afterwards, which worked really well. Would definitely recommend!
They are amazing! We hired them for our wedding and they did a fantastic job!
They were easy to be in contact with and were really helpful if we had any questions.
On the day itself they managed to get set up quickly (there had been delays in other parts of the day) and immediately created an environment where everyone wanted to get up and dance.
The musicians were really skilled and the caller was great!
It was part ceilidh, part twmpath which suited our Welsh-Scottish wedding perfectly. The caller that did our wedding (Ceri) spoke Welsh too! We didn’t know this in advance but that really fitted in with our bilingual day.
Can highly reccomend them!
I hired the band for my 30th birthday and they were fabulous! The guests were a mix of ceilidh pros and first timers and Hannah and the boys couldn’t have been better at getting everyone involved and playing a fantastic range of music and dances! Trying to find a reason to have another ceilidh soon so I can book them again! Would highly recommend!
