Music

Overview

  • 2-6 piece ceilidh band

About this Act

Funkeilidh are a Fife based versatile Ceilidh Band with Fun & Funk built in.

Not content with pure Ceilidh music all the time, Funkeilidh can play a number of cover versions, quick steps & slow numbers to break things up & give your guests a break & a chance to gossip. If you’re a Ceilidh purist though, they’ve never run out of dances yet & can give you a purely Scottish evening. Just let them know.

They also have a smattering of dances from Sweden, Bavaria, Israel & France to delight those who want to see what goes on elsewhere. & then there’s the Glasgow Kiss, not quite sure where they picked up this wonderful little dance (Glasgow perhaps), but it’s one they always need to teach so it levels the seasoned & tentative dancers.
