The band playing at the Edinburgh University Student Awards 2019

Edinburgh University Folk and Traditional Music Society runs a professional ceilidh band that is available for bookings. The money from the band provides an income for students and also supports the society, helping us promote traditional music at the university.

As well as a lively Ceilidh band we can provide dance calling and a P.A.

The prices (VAT included) currently stand at:

  • £270 for a three person ceilidh band
  • £320 for a four person ceilidh band
  • Free for charity events (£20 travel expenses if outwith central Edinburgh)
  • £40 for P.A. hire

If you would like to make a booking enquiry for a 3 or 4 person ceilidh band, please fill out our online form here.
