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!
