Funkeilidh Ceilidh Band


  • 2-6 piece ceilidh band
  • Dave J Ford fronts Funkeilidh. As a Multi-instrumentalist, whatever line up you book, you'll get a very varied sound with saxophone on your waltzes! He rarely plays the same instrument on 2 dances.
  • A solid accordion player is the engine of any Ceilidh band & our accordion players are second to none. With the rest of the trimmings also being top class musicians, you really are guaranteed a great evening.
  • Funkeilidh pride themselves on gauging their audience, encouraging requests & tailoring the music to suit. Dave & Bruce are experienced Dance Callers

Price Range

Prices range from £440 to £1800


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.

Where are they based?

The Band are based in Fife but play throughout Scotland.
