Ceilidh Band

Welcome to the online home of top Irish / ceilidh band, the Ship Band. We play across the coutry for Ceilidhs, Barn Dances and Irish nights and are always happy to hear from you if you are planning an event.

We play a mix of original and contemporary Irish Scottish and English folk music.  As well as folk, our individual influences include classical, jazz, country and reggae.

You can book us to play at your birthday, wedding, party, pub or festival.  We have been playing across the country for a number of years and have experience of playing for a varity of different events and occasions.

Our sound is as much suited to a small, intimate, Irish venue as it is to a barn dance in a large concert hall or open air venue, and we are able to gear I line up to the requirements of your event

We are based between Bristol and London and cover the South West, South Wales, the South Coast, London and the Midlands, Including Bath, Gloucester Cheltenham, Stroud, Swindon, Oxford, Newbury, Southampton, Portsmouth, Reading, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Berkshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey and Middlesex.

We hope that you find our site useful and look forward to hearing from you.  Please feel free to contact the band for enquiries, booking or advice on organings a ceilidh or barn dance
