Dear Callum - we all had a great night on the 27th April.Thanks so much to your band - you were fantastic. Your music got everyone up.There wasn't a single dance undanced. My friends are raving about the good time they had.They rated it one of the best parties ever, Just enough instruction was given for the ceilidh dances it didn't become tedious stepping them through, there were just enough Scots folk to keep the foreigners right.
You judged our crowd (pretty mixed!) and pitched the choice of ceilidh dances just right, with jiving and a little ballroom to give a great mix.
Thank you for your high standard of musicianship amongst the 3 of you.We thought the accordionist was very skilled and produced a great sound. Addie Harper was super on the guitar.
As you know, our grandaughter kicked off the dancing and it went from there, great fun till the end and were all set up for a party after the party!
I am sure that the Atholl Arms will be recommending you for future functions.
Thank you for communicating so well with me beforehand.....I appreciated our chats.
Best wishes, Sherie

The Tay Ceilidh Band did a fantastic job for our wedding. It was great to have the dances called so our guests with little experience could join in on all the fun! The band did a brilliant job of encouraging everyone onto the dance floor throughout the night, and perfectly blended together the Scottish and Bulgarian music we requested. We could not have asked for a better band to entertain us while celebrating the joining of our two cultures.

I want to thank you and the band so much for doing the party. Everybody had an amazing time and thought you were fantastic.

The Tay Ceilidh Band are perfect for a ceilidh. They are fun, friendly and they know how to get people up on the dance floor. A really brilliant band and I would recommend them for any type of ceilidh event. Everybody had an amazing night thanks to this very talented band. Thank you!


Hi Callum

Just wanted to say that everyone had great fun with the Ceilidh Band at our wedding at Fingask Castle on Sunday. You guys did a good job of encouraging people to get up and with your help everyone got into the swing and spin of the dances quickly.

It was also great to have the DJ after for the salsa dancing and for the disco afterwards.

If you ever need us to recommend you feel free.

Best Regards

The new Patersons!

Dear Callum,

Thank you so much for helping at our reception. The ceilidh really was a highlight of the day for us both. It was great to see so many of our friends and family up dancing - especially those who said they wouldn't! I found it very easy chatting to you on the phone when we were organising the event and appreciated your advice about what would work best - you were absolutely right with all your suggestions. I gather you also helped Harry with setting up the guitar and microphone for his 'surprise act' - it was fantastic and I know he really appreciated your help.

We wish you and the band all the very best.

Thanks again.


We asked Callum and the Tay Ceilidh Band to play at our wedding at Ballathie House Hotel.We were looking for a half ceilidh half disco combination and I have to say we were absolutely delighted with the whole evening, it was just perfect. Callum was so helpful and friendly in the whole organisation process, very flexible as to the running order and happy to adapt on the night if needed. The ceilidh was first class, fantastic trio of musicians, with Callum calling the dances (important for us as we had a lot of foreign guests). This then flowed nicely into the disco part which was equally as great, all the current hits of the moment with some Kabyle music provided by ourselves. All in all it was a fantastic evening, can’t thank Callum & band enough for the stunning entertainment they provided. We have had no end of comments from family and friends as to what a super evening it was.
