It’s sometimes difficult to know how to spell the word ceilidh/Ceilidh. A few I’ve seen are cili caily ceili ceilid cilidh cielidh to say a few. Different accents don’t help, an Aberdeen accent is different from Aberdeenshire, Angus, Deeside and Moray. Some have doric language attached. In Scotland, ceilidhs or ceilidh’s are often different with names for different dances such as strip the willow is drops of brandy. In Stonehaven it is the same.
An Aberdonian dance can be a country dance band, a dance band, a ceilidh band, a ceilidh dance band. But just as fun is had at a Dundee, Perth, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Highland, Lowland, Elgin, Peterhead, Ayr, Dumfries, Galashiels, Selkirk or Borders Ceilidh,
Ceilidhs are played at weddings or wedding or corporate events or event, parties or a party, anniversary or anniversaries, birthday or birthdays, also many charity functions and do’s.
The dances are such fun to do. It makes it much easier with a caller (someone who teaches the dance )
the venue is very important. We play Stonehaven Town Hall, many village halls. Football and rugby stadiums such as Pittoddrie, Murrayfield Hampden.
Festival or festivals are a lot of fun as well. Hebcelt, Shetland and Orkney. Playing at Celtic Connections is a dream.
