Wraggle Taggle Ceilidh Band
A professional and talented traditional band available for weddings, parties, festivals, pubs, clubs and functions
Wraggle Taggle can tailor themselves to suit your particular needs. Guitar/Vocals, Accordion and Banjo form the "core" of the band, but they can perform as anything from a duo to a six-piece, amplified or acoustic, with or without a caller. All their musicians have been performing, touring and recording for many years and two are award-winning performers.
They play Irish, Scottish, English and American songs & tunes, with the ability to concentrate on one particular style all night should you wish. Additional instruments can be added as required, such as fiddle, flute, tin-whistle, double bass or percussion. Speciality instruments such as Scottish or Irish bagpipes, bodhran (Irish drum) or traditional dancers available by arrangement (subject to availability & musical considerations).
Their most common format for a ceilidh comprises four musicians plus a caller, who will teach the dances from scratch - no experience needed! Perfect for a wedding or party, it is suitable for all ages and provides a great way for people to mix and socialize. The faster dances are an energetic work out, and Wraggle Taggle also play in a more relaxed romantic mood.
