McAlpine Fusiliers – Ceilidh Band

This is a great northern ceilidh band! Covering the whole North West & beyond, they are available for barn dances, weddings, birthdays, parties and celebrations of all kinds. Made up of experienced traditional musicians, they create a lively, energetic, inherently danceable sound guaranteed to have your guests on the floor!

They play dance music from a variety of traditions, including English, Irish, Scottish and American tunes. They also perform a wide variety of songs ranging from heartfelt Scottish ballads to all out Rock ‘n’ Roll.

They know through experience that each event is unique and requires a different approach so will tailor their services to meet your every need and ensure your event is a success. They can provide a 3 to 7 piece band with a caller and their own PA. The band is fronted by Roy, one of Britain’s leading callers (with over 40 years experience!) who will keep everyone entertained & going in the right direction!
