Want a Ceilidh in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire or Humberside? Then contact us, the Ermine Street Ceilidh Band - for your wedding, party or corporate event. The band is led by Bill Wilson, who together with our caller Simon Styles and other local talented musicians, provide a unique blend of Celtic and English Ceilidh Sounds with a hint of Americana. The band named after the ancient Roman Road of Ermine Street which runs through Lincolnshire where we are based.
The band has been together for some time and has gained quite a local reputation for their "toe-tapping" unique blend of guitar, melodion, fiddle, whistle and 5 string banjo, a line-up which lends itself to all manner of traditional folk music and dance.
The Band Members
And with such a line-up who could resist joining in with our varied dance sets - including all the old time favourites such as "Eightsome Reels", "Strip the Willow", "Threading The Needle", the "Gay Gordons" and even "Coming Round the Mountain".
The most important thing is that everyone has a good time, something we are proud to say, happens virtually every ceilidh, because we enjoy it so much and so do our audience!.
The tracks below were recorded at recent ceilidhs.... on a small hand held device so please don't expect professional audio quality!

Dear Ermine Street Band, This is a rather late thank you, but I thought you might like confirmation that we were very happy with your performance the other week, with a particular thank you to the roving caller for his efforts in getting our more reluctant guests to join in! Cheers, Harriet and Jon Gillman
