About this Act

Kilter is a modern ceilidh band playing fired up ceilidh music. Their seasoned musicians pour drive and energy into creating an incredible atmosphere each time they play with a perfect mix of fun dance calling, backed up with a modern and spicy ceilidh sound. There is a strong emphasis on calling the dances and teaching the steps in a light hearted and fun way. The result forms a great bond between the crowd and the band and makes for a memorable night.

Kilter also offer a DJ set as part of the performance. The blend of Ceilidh Band and DJ is tried and tested and allows the band to play a broad range of music to suit any crowd. They're brilliant at reading the crowd and talioring the set to ensure a full dance floor throughout the night.

Kilter is more than happy to play ceilidh all night if required? If Ceildih and DJ is requried, then they're flexible and will happily discuss ideas about how best to arrange the night between the band and DJ. They can suggest formats that have worked well in the past, but they're equally keen to hear your ideas.
