Jiggered Ceilidh Band had another busy weekend there.
On Friday, we were back at New Lanark Mill Hotel again for the wedding of Ruth and David. It was a great night- the crowd were really up for ceilidhing and the hall was just about big enough for all the guests who wanted to get on the floor! It was nice to see some familiar faces at this one (Boycey, David Dalgleish and Jiggered-diehard and honourary member Ruth Hutchison!).
On Saturday I made the most of my problem-solving and spatial awareness skills to figure out how to pack the 4 members of Jiggered, a set of drums, 2 speakers, 2 microphones, 1 piano, 1 guitar, 1 amp, 1 violin, luggage etc into my car ready for our roadtrip to London!
Saturday night we were playing at the Edinburgh Capital Hotel. Our clients were really enthusiastic and the feedback from the wedding guests was very positive...which was nice!

Jiggered Ceilidh Band were back at Cameron House Hotel, Loch Lomond for their latest ceilidh. It's one of our favourite venues and we enjoyed a game of snooker in the games room before kicking off the music. For the record, Jenny and I lost our doubles match...
We were providing the ethnic Scottish music for Lynda and Sat's wedding but there were regular breaks for ethnic Bhangra music too. So in between the Gay Gordons and Strip the Willow guests were enjoying trying some upbeat Bhangra music (and learning some highly technical moves like "screwing the lightbulb" and "patting the dog").
It was a fantastic evening and one that we'll not forget in a hurry!
