Moggy in the Wood Ceilidh Band would love to play for your wedding reception, birthday party, anniversary party, celebration, barn dance, square dance, hoedown or ceilidh.

The band was formed in 2009 by experienced ceilidh band players from around Leicester and is based in Leicestershire in the East Midlands, England.

We offer a lively mixture of traditional English, Irish, Scottish and American dance music suitable for a barn dance or ceilidh, played on fiddle and accordion backed up by guitar and bodhran played by our usual caller.

"Near me" would be anywhere in Leicestershire, the surrounding counties or within 1 hour's drive of Leicester.

A barn dance, square dance or ceilidh is probably the most fun you can have with your clothes on. It is suitable for most ages, and you get to dance with everyone in the room. You dance to jigs, reels, polkas, waltzes and hornpipes and the caller will organise the dancing so no experience is needed.

It is a fun and very social way to celebrate for your wedding reception, birthday party, etc and it is a good entertaining way to raise funds for your school, club or organisation. Here is more information on how to run a ceilidh or barn dance.
