They were absolutely fantastic! We have received such amazing feedback about them from our guests and venue! They were very good at judging the right mix of ceildh and contemporary for the night. I especially loved the fiddle playing during the contemporary songs.

Ballogie House, 24-Jun-17

CeilidhDonia were simply brilliant. Their music repertoire was right up my street and they learned our chosen first dance for us which was great. They played a great mix of ceilidh and rock / pop music which was just the right mix for the crowd - some bands don't have enough of a ceilidh repertoire. They are lovely folk and I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a great band.

Emma Buchan, Peterhead

Hello Dave Just a wee email to thank all you guys very much for a wonderful performance on Saturday 6th December at the Station Hotel Ellon on our wedding day. We are very grateful for you all playing a part in our very special day. The reports we have received from our guests has been of the highest order. We have yet to hear one bad report and we reckon that bad report will never arrive. The dance floor was always packed, at some points people were actually having to wait for their turn to join the dance floor as it was that full at times so we have heard. As much as it is what we paid you guys for, your assessment and musical choice was second to none the whole evening from start to finish. If anyone we know asks if we know of any bands to perform at wedding receptions or similar we will highly recommend yourselves. We hope to see you perform again in the future. Once again we cannot express our gratitude enough for a fantastic evening of all tastes of music. Thank you one and all very much indeed, Stuart & Dawn Bartlet

HI Gill, Lesley here – just wanted to thank you and the guys SO much for being the best band ever. Sat night thankfully seems to have been a great success and I am just so please that everyone had a great party as that was my aim! We also raised £7,241 !! so delighted – not bad for a night everyone enjoying themselves! You will get lots of people wanting you as had lots of praise for you – Charlie kindly gave me your email – do you want people to email or call you (I don’t have your email if so). Anyway – thanks so much again for being so great with the kids too and I haven’t been to a “do” for a long time where EVERONE was up dancing from the beginning! Hope you all enjoyed it and thanks again to all for all your hard work – great cause and great party! Kind regards Lesley

Fabulous band! Their choice of music was just right for my event. Dance floor was full most of the night plus they were lovely people to deal with. Would have them back in a second.

Park Lodge Hotel, 28-Jun-13

We were very pleased with all aspects of their performance, arriving punctually, setting up unobtrusively & departing without fuss. They accepted any requests, kept the npise level down & were able to cater extremely well for a very wide age range.

Marriott Dalmahoy, 03-Sep-11

Ceilidhdonia are an excellent band and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music they played - and thanks for letting the groom play lead guitar for a song!! People who don't normally dance were on the dancefloor which says it all!!

Catriona Mutch, Linlithgow

The band went down amazingly well, everyone loved them and they gave a great, energetic performance. The mix of music suited our group really well. They even had to give in to the shouts of "encore" and play another song or two. Thanks very much, guys!

Caroline Swan, Paisley

We had a fantastic day thank you, all went very smoothly and ceilidhdonia were excellent. Brilliant music, everyone joined in due to excellent direction for the dances, and they helped create a great atmosphere. Booking through you made the process so simple and we had confidence in the evenings entertainment turning up! Thanks again.

Simon and Grace Mccarthy

What can I say ceilidhdonia were absolutely fabulous!! They really made the celebrations come to life and everybody had a fantastic time (especially us!!). I have had a few enquiries since as to who they were etc so I expect more bookings to be coming your way. Please pass on our gratitude for their efforts and fabulous playing to make our wedding a dream one - especially given the short notice and lack of space! Kind regards


Thank you for all your help booking Ceilidhdonia. We were delighted with the band - they were absolutely fantastic. Dave was an exceptionally patient and amusing caller, especially as half of us didn't even know our left from our right. The music was great and all our guests had a fabulous time. Even the men who never dance were up on the floor. One of the highlights of the wedding for me was the final set they played where all our guests were up dancing and everyone was laughing and smiling. The only disappointment was that they couldn't play longer! We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.

James and anna stevenson.

The band were great! - with the added bonus of Sandy Brechin playing with them that night.
