Pastiche; a London Ceilidh Band
Ceilidh is the perfect live music entertainment for your wedding celebration or party. Pastiche are a London Ceilidh Band. We provide a great evening of entertainment which is guaranteed to get everyone on the dance floor.
The term Ceilidh, (pronounced Kaylee) is Celtic for ‘party’ or ‘gathering’. A ceilidh is a fun, folk dance at which there is Scottish or Irish folk music, singing and dancing.
The terms Barn Dance and Ceilidh are often used interchangeably. Barn Dances can also include English Country Dancing.
Each Ceilidh dance comprises a pattern of moves (called ‘figures’) which are taught by our caller.
Everyone can join in the dances; even complete beginners have fun while being taken through the dance steps by our experienced caller. The band starts off slow but rev up the tempo once people are starting to learn the figures.
Pastiche are a six-piece, London ceilidh band, The Caller, Flute, Fiddle, Guitar, Bass and Drums. Pastiche can provide one or two sets of ceilidh music followed by one or two sets of party music (see our repertoire list). The ceilidh band can also appear as a smaller unit for a smaller event.
