General info

* The Basic Ceilidh Band fee covers two 1-hour sets of ceilidh dancing spanning a maximum of 4 1/2 hours at the venue (including 1hr of setup/soundcheck time).  Additional time beyond this can be hired at £60 per hour up until 12am (for example, if you would like to play your own playlist through our sound system after the Ceilidh) and at £60 per 30mins beyond 12am.  All prices include a caller.

The overall amount of time you would like to hire us for would ideally be decided at the point of booking as the details of this would appear on the contract and affect the overall price.  Additions to the hire time are possible after signing the contract (subject to the band’s availability) although this may result in a new contract being sent out and would not affect the validity of the existing contract until the new one was signed and returned to the bandleader.

The Aluinn Duo provide up to 3 x 30mins sets spanning a maximum of 3 1/2 hours at the venue (including 1hr of set up/sound check time).

Please note that as we are full-time musicians who largely earn our living from performing, we are unable to offer a cheaper price for shorter and/or earlier set times.

Light Hire

We can provide two high-quality mounted racks of 4 disco lights each for the duration of the booking for a total additional cost of £60 (Equivalent cost in a light hire shop is approx. £80).  These can be mounted either side of the dance floor and add a great party/disco feel if you are playing your own playlist after the ceilidh.
