Glenfinnan Ceilidh Band smThe Glenfinnan Ceilidh Band

West Lochaber has always been fertile ground for attracting and nurturing traditional talent and this grouping of musical giants is testament to that.

All based in Glenfinnan village, the Ceilidh Band members include stalwarts from the traditional music world who are as at home playing large concert venues around the world as intimate bothy cèilidhs.

 On fiddle is Iain MacFarlane (Blazin’ Fiddles), Colm O’Rua (Daimh) on banjo, Iain MacMaster on accordion/ dance calling and Ingrid Henderson (Cliar/ Anne Martin duo) on piano and vocals. Formed for the sheer fun of playing good music, together their unique blend of West Coast dance music will get your toes tapping.

 “A band you could dance to!  A rare commodity in this ever-racing world, with a musicality that was refreshing.”

“Pedigrees that guarantee quality.” The Scotsman
