Adored South East ceilidh band Want an award winning band of fun traditional musicians to perform at your wedding or any other event? Contact Wraggle Taggle Ceilidh Band. This band of musicians has performed for Mick Jagger, Zoe Ball, Robert Smith of the Cure, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie and Frank Skinner to name a few. Contact us today for details. Outstanding, award-winning talent from the North London traditional music scene, Wraggle Taggle Ceilidh Band, can tailor a band to your particular needs - anything from a duo to a six-piece, amplified or acoustic, with or without a caller. All the musicians have been performing, touring and recording many years. Wraggle Taggle play Irish, Scottish, English and American songs and tunes, and are both sensitive to the occasion and responsive to the mood of the audience. If you wish they could concentrate on one particular style all night e.g. Scottish or Irish. All-Ireland champion musicians Carlene Anglim (fiddle), Eugene Teevan (accordion), and Mick O'Connor (tenor banjo) are joined by Mick Bailey (guitar/vocals) to form the "core" of the band. Other instruments such as, flute, tin-whistle, or percussion may also be added. Speciality instruments such as Scottish or Irish bagpipes, bodhran (Irish drum) or traditional dancers are also available. The Wraggle Taggles' most common format for a ceilidh consists of four musicians plus a caller who will teach the dances from scratch - no experience needed! A ceilidh is something really different and ideal for a successful party, as it is a fun way to get families, friends and colleagues to mix and meet and because all age groups become involved.

"Hi Mick, Thank you so much for playing at our wedding (18th August 2012 Saturday, Mulberry Hill, Chilham, Kent. Ct4 8AJ). You and your band made it memorable. Well done to the caller (sorry didn't even get her name) too for getting everyone in the swing of things! We know that everyone thought it was great fun despite it being the hottest day of the year. I'm glad you all managed to eat some Chinese. Thanks again" Julia and Andrew Ridge 27th August 2012

"Such wonderful musicians" "Hello Mick and all of the band who attended our wedding at Moreteyne Manor on 09/09/2017! (Saturday Woburn Road, Marston Moreteyne, Bedford, Bedfordshire, MK43 0NQ) What an absolutely fantastic interlude of music you gave us - we all absolutely loved it! I'm just so sorry I didn't get the chance to come and thank you personally on the day, it was a bit of a whirlwind - but I have the most beautifully vivid memories of dancing with my uncle in the lounge. Such wonderful musicians and you played a perfect array of songs for us all to enjoy. Paul heard the sea shanty and was very excited, especially when I told him that it was for him. We hope everything went ok for ye too and that you enjoyed the venue. We have had lots of people asking about you so we will be sure to pass on your name and website to them. Thanks for adding a wonderful dose of celtic magic to our special day. Lots of best wishes" Karen and Paul Savage 28th Sept 2017

The perfect musicians

The perfect musicians "Wraggle Taggle turned out to be the perfect musicians for my dad's memorial celebration (29th September 2018 (duo) Saturday The Duke William, 25 Coventry Street, Stourbridge, West Midlands, DY8 1EP). They were professional and friendly and incorporated specially requested songs into their routine. Myself and my family were very happy both with their performance and as individuals. We would definitely recommend them to anyone!!!" -Deirdre Fowkes-O'Dea 30th September 2018

Professional and polished ceildh band

Rated Rated Rated Rated Rated

Professional and polished ceildh band Wraggle Taggle performed at a party to celebrate our wedding in South London. (8th September 2018 Saturday Stanley Halls, 12 South Norwood Hill, London, SE25 6AB) In the lead-up to the party they were very organised and professional to deal with. On the day, they arrived in good time and put-on a great performance. Their caller was very experienced, easily able to coach the group through all of the dances; including young, elderly and those with no experience of similar dancing. Highly recommended. -Caitlin Douglas & Richard Mundy 9th Sept 2018

All our guests thoroughly enjoyed it

Rated Rated Rated Rated Rated

All our guests thoroughly enjoyed it "Hi Mick, Thank you so much for playing at our wedding at The Dreys last Sunday (15th July 2018 Sunday The Dreys, Rumstead Lane, Sittingbourne, Kent, ME9 7QL). We had a fantastic time, and all our guests thoroughly enjoyed it. Your caller (I've forgotten her name) was super patient and clear and you were all very effective at encouraging everyone to fill the dance floor. Apparently, the venue owners had never had a ceilidh before but now thinks they're fantastic. I'm not quite sure how a venue like that has never had a ceilidh before, but hopefully there'll be many more there in the future! Is there anywhere you would like me to post a review online? Or you can take comments from this email if you like. Thanks again" -Joanna Bradley and Emily Lee 22nd Jul 2018
