The Burdock Ceilidh Band Full Description
We are a semi-acoustic Celtic band playing folk music supporting social dances from across the planet. Ceilidh is our speciality, which means we aim to get everybody involved, up and dancing, if possible. It works perfectly for weddings, and ensures mingling of guests like no other entertainment does. There's nothing too challenging in the dancing - we're more interested in seeing people having fun together. Our expert caller will walk through each dance to ensure that guests have some inkling of what to do, but we don't expect people to get it perfect - it's the taking part that matters!

Fantastic band
We would all like to thank you for the amazing music and entertainment you gave us on the 7th March. We all had an amazing time, the music was absolutely fantastic and the way you kept everyone on the dance floor having a wonderful time. The beautiful Blessing dance at the end was one of the most lovely things I’ve seen done at a wedding and our guests are still talking about it. Thank you again

These guys were an absolute hit and made our evening!
Since our wedding we have had no shortage of people commenting on just how fantastic Dan and the Burdock Band were at our wedding reception. They literally got EVERYONE up and having fun - including several uncles that we never thought we would see dancing in a million years! They without a doubt were one of the best decisions we made for our special day. Well worth the money, hugely professional, excellent quality and really friendly. Thank you guys!

Great evening, even better music :)
Fantastic band for a wedding. We booked them recently for a November 2019 wedding and everyone commented on how much fun they had. The band sounded great, were really enthusiastic and very easy to get on with. They even went as far as to prepare a dance based on a song from the Lord of the Rings on request. Highly recommend for a really enjoyable evening of music and dancing :)

Everything we wanted
This band and ceilidh was absolutely brilliant. All of our guests said how much they enjoyed the dancing. The caller was absolutely brilliant, loud, funny and direct and didn’t ever get frustrated. We had ours outside on a perfect day and the burdock band made our day 🤩

Perfect Wedding Band!
The Band played our wedding earlier in the year, and we could not be happier! Dan is an excellent caller, and gets everyone up on the dance floor. Our friends and family all loved it, even though this was a first ceilidh for many! We really couldn't recommend the Burdock Band enough!
