Hell For Leather - Ceilidh, Folk, and Rock

Hell For Leather

They say the Devil went down to Georgia to test a Fiddler...well he should have come to Scotland to test Hell For Leather. They would have danced the buckles off his shoes!

Featuring a high-energy fusion of Scottish music, Ceilidh Dances, and Rock covers, this four-piece band know how to wear out anyone's shoe-leather.

With an eclectic mix of Accordion, Guitars, Mandolin/Tin Whistle, Highland Bagpipes, Bodhran (traditional celtic drum), and Vocals, your feet will never touch the ground during the dancing. You might also have to wipe a tear from your eyes during the gentler numbers.

If their modern repertoire is not enough for you, then Hell For Leather can also provide a disco.

The Six Nations

In 2005, The Magic Agency booked the band to appear at the Six Nations Rugby Championship at Murrayfield. Their appearance met with such sucess, they were whisked up to the V.I.P's box to give a special performance! Needles to say, the organisers asked them back for repeat performance.

Since then, they have appeared for The Magic Agency at venues, big and small, across Scotland - including Gleneagles Hotel, Our Dynamic Earth and The Lodge Loch Lomond.

They also met with great acclaim when we booked them to entertain the troops at The 40th Regiment Royal Artilley in North Yorkshire.

Hell for Leather is a great band for Weddings, Ceilidhs, and Concerts. In fact, any event where you want foot-tappingly, great music.

ReelBack - Ceilidh and Rock

ReelBack Ceilidh Band in Scotland

Formed by five musicians with enviable talent and a vast wealth of experience in the music business, ReelBack are a ceilidh and covers band with a difference.

ReelBack use an eclectic mix of traditional and modern ceilidh music, giving the music a unique Celtic-fusion twist, with funky and syncopated rhythms. Many of our ceilidh tunes have been composed in a neo-traditional style by band members, and when added to our array of purely traditional tunes, this makes for the interesting and unexpected sets which ceilidh dancers canít help but love!

Their caller is second to none, three times senior Scottish Highland Dancing champion, teacher of the art with many champions of her own, including senior Scottish and British champions, trained choreographer and composer. Gillian has ceilidh called all over the globe while touring with her own dance group, The Ballochleam Highland Dancers.

Gillian ensures that those who have never done a ceilidh dance in their lives still have a ball, and that the "experts" don't get bored waiting until she organizes the beginners, a difficult balance to achieve.

And when you tire of ceilidh dancing or would like a change of mood, ReelBack will slip into a set of polished pop classics, Rock and Roll, and modern covers. Or perhaps you will jus want to listen for a while, to ReelBack's Celtic Folk/Rock music

The band have a state of the arts PA system and stage and floor lighting.

The Alastair Wood Ceilidh and Covers Band

Alastair Wood Band Scotland

Alastair and his band are well-known and respected in Ceilidh and Scottish Country Dancing circles in Scotland.

Whether providing traditional music for Ceilidhs or strict tempo for the more formal Scottish Country Dancing, Alastair and his lads know how to get everyone dancing and enjoying themselves.

His usual line-up is 4 or 5-piece with 2 accordions, fiddle, guitar and drums. Alastair's band is unusual in having a guitar instead of the more regular keyboard; however, this gives the Band a distinctive sound and a very wide repertoire.

The band appears regularly on the BBC Radio Scotland "Take the Floor" Scottish dance programme, and as well as playing at events up and down the country, has played in the Far East on a number of occasions for the St. Andrews Societies of Singapore and Jakarta, Indonesia.

However, as well as performing Scottish music to very high standards, Alastair and the band can also provide Modern numbers ranging from Van Morrison to Robbie Williams and Barry White to The Blues Brothers!

So they can give you Ceilidh music for one half of the evening and Modern for the other half. - or any mix you want!

The lead vocalist has an excellent voice and performs songs by Barry White, Van Morrison, Roxy Music, Mavericks, Robbie Wiiliams...and more...with ease.

Quite simply, they are a great band with a very broad repertoire and very much in demand for Weddings, Ceilidhs, and Scottish Country Dance Clubs all over Scotland and abroad.

They are currently booked to perform for, and in honour of, the real Calender Girls (on which the hit film is based) in Harrowgate. Unfortunately for the band, the charming and demure ladies will be keeping their clothes on for this function...
