About this Act

Whigmaleerie are a five-piece Ceilidh Dance Band born and formed in Aberdeenshire, Scotland in the last century which this century, has matured into the perfect Ceilidh Dance Band for every occasion.

With over 25 years experience as a Ceilidh Band in the North East of Scotland, Whigmaleerie's not-so-delicate blend of drums; fiddle; keyboards; guitars; and vocals gives them a contemporary sound, drawn on the traditional music of Scotland, Ireland and England.

Being a totally live band, not relying on backing tracks to enhance their sound, gives Whigmaleerie the flexibility to integrate and participate with their audience and gives a relaxing, fun loving feel to any event where they perform. This helps greatly when calling the Ceilidh Dances and allows room for a bit of fun at the same time.

Although based near Aberdeen, Whigmaleerie have performed at literally hundreds of festivals, marquees, events, weddings, private parties and ceilidhs throughout Scotland and the UK, and our lively, energetic music coupled with our on and off-stage humour, makes us popular wherever we perform.

Whigmaleerie Ceilidh Dance Band are more than just a Ceilidh Band and can provide the Complete Entertainment Package including DJ and Disco if required for your event and we pride ourselves on working closely with all of our clients to ensure an entire evening of first class entertainment tailored to your Requirements.
