Weddings, Corporate Events, Functions, Parties

Available for all functions throughout the North East and the rest of the UK. The Great North Ceilidh Band and Disco will provide top class entertainment tailored to the occasion.

Don't worry if you've never been to a ceilidh - We quickly talk you through the dances beforehand and our professional 'Caller' guides you along as the music plays. We can provide anything from Robert solo or two, three and four- piece bands as required to fit in with your budget.

Bandleader Robert Whitehead, from Bothal, Northumberland, was the first Englishman to win the Senior Scottish Traditional Accordion Championship. As a soloist and with his own band he is a regular on BBC's 'Take The Floor'

Live performances regularly take the band to Shetland, Portugal, Cyprus, USA, Ireland and more recently Uganda! Robert also clocks-up more than 50,000 miles a year in the UK playing for Dances, Festivals, Concerts, Ceilidhs, Accordion Clubs, Folk Clubs, Weddings and other private functions.

The addition of the fully-equipped disco now means that everyone is catered for. Music of your choice can be played throughout the evening or after the dance.
