Jiggered Ceilidh Band were playing at Leapark Hotel in Grangemouth last night for Margaret's 50th. It was a great night and one which really lived out the traditional definition of a ceilidh (see Wikipedia's definition) with loads of friends and family gathered together, many of whom were only too keen to perform their various talents! We had two solos, an Irish dancer and the birthday girl gave a speech too...
We're playing again tonight: near Tarbert (long drive).

Jiggered Ceilidh Band were back at Strathclyde Union this time for a Malawi fundraiser. It's always great to be back in the venue where it all started for us back in 2002 (eight years ago- that's mad). Vertigo was quieter than usual but the dancers were enthusiastic and we enjoyed our night as usual...Ewan bought 5 tickets for the raffle and Jenny bought 2. They ended up winning three times although they decided not to claim prize number three! Maybe the second prize (the ropey looking Ginger Tam's) put them off!
