Wraggle Taggle Ceilidh Band, outstanding talent from the North London traditional music scene, can tailor a band to your particular needs – anything from a duo to a six-piece, amplified or acoustic, with or without a caller. All the musicians have been performing, touring and recording many years and two are award-winning performers.

Wraggle Taggle specialise in Traditional Irish, Scottish, American and English music, songs and tunes. They play with innovation, flair and vitality. Musical influences include; The Chieftains; Planxty; The Bothy Band; Altan; Ally Bain; Boys of the Lough; Jimmy Shand; The Pogues; Van Morrison; The Dubliners, Christy Moore and the many talented friends they have met over the years in the vibrant traditional music scene.

The band are both sensitive to the occasion and responsive to the mood of the audience. If you wish Wraggle Taggle can concentrate on one particular style e.g. Scottish or Irish throughout the performance. An example of a duo would be guitar/vocals and banjo. Their accordion player can be brought in to enlarge the band. Other instruments such as fiddle, flute, tin-whistle, double bass or snare drum may be added. Speciality instruments such as Scottish bagpipes, Irishpipes, bodhran or traditional dancers are also available.

The Wraggle Taggles’ most common format for a ceilidh consists of four musicians plus a caller who will teach the dances from scratch – no experience needed! A ceilidh is something really different and ideal for a successful party, as it is a fun way to get families, friends and colleagues to mix and meet and because all age groups become involved.

    “Dear Mick The confetti has settled a little after the wedding. (17th July 2015* Friday The Tudor Barn, Britwell Rd, Burnham, Bucks SL1 8DF). We are so grateful for the brilliant band! My comments are below which I’m happy for you to use on your website. God bless you …all of you! “Wraggle Taggle were BRILLIANT! The ceilidh dancing added something so special to the wedding because the music was joyous. Everyone, from grandpa to young bridesmaids, joined in and the ‘calling’ excellent and fun. Mick, the band leader, was incredibly good at organising the whole thing and always answered emails promptly (which is really helpful when you’re organising a wedding). Thanks to all of you!!!” Christine Daniel 4th August 2015
