An Angels of the North Ceilidh

There's no such thing as a standard booking as every Angels Ceilidh is custom-designed for you.

The Angels play all your favourite dances, tunes and songs - here are the set lists from recent themed ceilidhs and bear in mind we can draw upon our wide repertoire to customise any theme to suit your occasion.

Our sound gallery contains recordings of some of our favourite sets, a mixture of live and studio recordings. We also have a gallery of photographs.

Practical Arrangements

We hope that these notes will help you plan your ceilidh.

  • When you book the band, we are yours for the evening. We supply an experienced caller to explain the dances and have our own PA. All you need to provide is a venue with a power socket nearby and some guests to dance.
  • Generally we include listening pieces or songs to give the dancers a bit of a rest.
  • Typically we would play two 90 minute sets with a 30 minute supper break in between but we can stretch or compress sets to meet your timings.
  • We will gladly lend you a microphone for announcements or short speeches and can play your own music from any iPod-like device with a headphone output.
  • If the ceilidh runs too late, we find the dancers drift away so it's best if the evening ends at a fixed time with a good crowd for the last dance. Typically the last dance would end at 23:00 but again we would be pleased to accommodate your specific needs.
  • We need 60 minutes to set up a further 30 minutes at the end pack everything away.
