CEILIDH BAND
Book UsView Packages

Welcome!

If you’ve found our website it might be because you’re looking for a ceilidh band for your event.

The Freedom Fields Ceilidh Band performs for all events including weddings, festivals, fundraising gigs and parties and we’d love to play for you. Between us we’ve performed at hundreds of events and know how to create a memorable occasion that leaves your guests smiling.

The band repertoire draws upon a rich heritage of traditional folk music, featuring a wide selection of infectious English, Scottish and Irish folk tunes to get you moving on the dance floor. You can hear how we sound in our media section, or better still, come and meet the band and see how we perform and interact – we live and breathe traditional music and can be found most weeks playing in one of the many traditional pub folk sessions in and around Devon.

If you want to know more about ceilidh’s and how a ceilidh works, we’ve written some articles which you can find in our Ceilidh Articles and FAQ pages.

    A stunning and perfect setting for tonight's Dartmoor wedding ceilidh. The 15th century Great Barn in Ashton.
    It was a full house last night for our public Halloween Ceilidh in Plymouth!  An energetic and up-for-it crowd packed the dancefloor from the moment we opened the doors til closing time. Let's do it again! Christmas Ceilidh anyone? #ceilidh #ceilidhband  #barndance #devonceilidh
    The Wembury crowd know how to party! The dancefloor was packed from start to finish at Kylie and Jamie's brilliant wedding at the amazing Hareston Manor yesterday. Possibly the most raucous ceilidh ever - absolutely beautiful mayhem - followed by our dancefloor jamming disco. A beautiful couple, a fantastic venue and an absolutely insane party!

    We had an amazing time last night celebrating Jo and Mary's wedding in Totnes. 

Their wildly enthusiastic guests packed the dancefloor from the moment we started until the moment we finished - so busy was it, we abandoned the usual short break and just played straight through!

What a great night! Definitely one to remember
