Jiggered Ceilidh Band Number One Choice

Jiggered Ceilidh Band Number One Choice

This was the 4th year that Jiggered Ceilidh Band have played at Larbert Pentecostal Church's annual ceilidh. Last night was a really enjoayable ceilidh as ever!

The dancers were in fine form tonight...with some classic freestyle. For the Virginia Reel a couple of sets replaced "forward two three clap clap" with "forward two three shimmy shimmy". Brilliant!

During the night, Ewan was showing off with the worst iPhone app you have ever seen. It's meant to analyse your photo to show which celebrity you look like. Instead it appears to just churn out Natalie Portman for pretty much every girl...

And this was the first ceilidh since Susan's 30th! Her card read "Hope we're still ceilidhing when we're 40!".

Jiggered Ceilidh Band at Loch Lomond Wedding

Jiggered Ceilidh Band at Loch Lomond Wedding

A first for Jiggered last night: a wedding a youth hostel. Loch Lomond Youth Hostel isn't your typical youth hostel- check it out online and you'll see it's an impressively grand building and inside it has loads of space! Jonny and Sabine had booked the whole place out for the wedding- an entire weekend of activities with their friends and families!

The evening was lots of fun- we played a couple of ceilidh sets and every square inch of the dancefloor was packed with super-enthusiastic dancers...During our break there was the culmination of the weekend's races, the much anticipated wheelbarrow race. Given that the eight finalists featured seven kilted gents and one girl in a dress this was a recipe for some hilarious flashing (although the contestants were offered some over-sized pants to maintain a sliver of dignity)!

At the end of the night, the couple cut their cakes- a Dr Who Tardis and a log which they caught with a saw. Sabine and Jonny seemed to have had a brilliant day and had certainly provided lots of personalised touches to make this a truly unique wedding! All the best guys.
