Music is provided by a traditional Ceilidh band with instruments which can include

lighting and of course a very experienced caller.
Although Contraband is an English Ceilidh band, the type of music is not restricted to traditional English folk tunes, we play Irish, American and Scottish tunes as well.
The band will always provide a Caller, who will talk everybody through the steps first, allowing any beginners to join in the fun.
Our music can be adapted for either the experienced dancer or a newcomer to a Ceilidh evening.
Clients can consult the band in advance for any special requests.
Sample tracks of the band can be heard on our website.
