These are the dances we tend to play for most mixed crowd events as the moves are fairly easy to pick up. The Eightsome Reel is usually too complicated for the average wedding party to learn on the spot. However, if we are requested to play it and the guests already know the moves, we’re delighted to play for the Eightsome Reel too.

If you have any other dance or music requests, please let us know in plenty of time to allow for us to learn them properly.
