I'll go ahead and say it. Boris and Gillian's reception at Edinburgh Academy provided the ceilidh of 2017! This one will be the benchmark against which all ceilidhs will be compared this year. The newlyweds were loving our tunes (especially hugh praise as they're both talented musicians- violinists!). The crowd, which included a load of Russian guests, absolutely lapped up every ceilidh dance, cover set and Scottish tune. From the moment Emma anounced the next song, the floor was crammed every dance and it's always nice to have massive applause after every one!
A few of our newest sets (including some cover mashups Emma put together and ceilidh tunes courtesy of Susan) went down a storm...looking forward to building them into future ceilidhs!
We had some grub at half time from award winning chippy L'alba D'oro...great wee place- the owner Filippo even offered Emma some free chips.
