Portobello Ceilidh Band Edinburgh

Welcome to our website, and thanks for visiting!

Portobello Ceilidh Band is one of Scotland’s longest-established and best-loved ceilidh bands. We provide traditional ceilidh music with a dedicated dance-caller for weddings, birthday parties, retirements, anniversaries, conferences, fundraisers, and community ceilidhs… what’s your event?

We have decades of combined experience playing and calling for all kinds of celebrations.

We’re equally happy playing for complete ceilidh novices, folk who remember a handful of dances from school, or ceilidh fanatics: what’s most important to us is that you and your guests have great fun dancing to our swinging, toe-tapping tunes.

We cherish the music and dance of Scotland and in particular we love the unique way they bring people together. When the equation between music, players, dancers and caller is right, a magical camaraderie fills the room and your evening takes off in a way you’ll never forget. That’s what we’re after in every ceilidh!
