What is a Ceilidh?

Dawntreader are a powerful and dynamic Ceilidh Band (Barn Dance, Folk Band) with Caller. Playing throughout Devon Cornwall, Somerset, Dorset and the South West of England. We have been providing Live Ceilidh / Barn Dance Music for  Weddings, Birthdays, Anniversaries, and Parties since 2009. Our mix of traditional folk music with strong melodies and powerful rhythms is ideally suited to Ceilidh and Barn Dances, or an American Barn Dance 'Cowboy' themed 'Hoedown'. 
We are a 3-4 piece Ceilidh Band playing English, Irish, Scottish and some European music.
Debs, our Caller has 15 yrs of experience in Calling with Ceilidh Bands and has Dances to suit all abilities, including some fun Dances for the little ones. She has been the resident Caller with the Dawntreaders since 2009, and has grown with the Band into a highly professional Wedding Ceilidh Caller, although she is equally at home with a local village hall Party. (check the Testamonial from The Royal Marines Burns Night Supper recently)

 With Fiddle and Accordion led music backed by a driving Rhythm Guitar, our musicians Lynn, John and Mel will keep you dancing all night long. If you were specifically looking for a bigger Ceilidh Band with a Drummer, we can also provide the Extended Dawntreader Band which will include a Drummer.
The Band has Public Liability Insurance, and all our Electrical Equipment is controlled within a PAT TEST Regime.

The Band has extensive experience in working with clients to customise our Ceilidh, Barn Dance package to suit the needs of their event. We draw on dances and music from across the UK, Europe and America to suit all abilities and taste. Once the evening has begun, Debs our Caller acts as M/C, so you do not have to worry about anything, other than enjoying yourself!

With over 60 years experience between us, we are the Band to pick for your Scottish, Irish, Celtic, English Ceilidh, or Barn Dance, or American Hoedown Event. 

If you are considering a late night DJ/Disco set to finish the evening at your Wedding/Event, then look no further. We can offer a number of styles of music, including our Melodic/Progressive Trance Set.
Alternatively, you can provide your own playlists - we control the PA and you control the content.
Our PA services are available as a stand alone service.

The correct spelling is Ceilidh, but other common spellings are kaley, kaylee, caylee, calee, kayleigh, ceili, ceilidhe, kylie.
