Whigmaleerie is a five-piece Ceilidh Dance Band born in Aberdeenshire, Scotland and has now matured into a great ceilidh dance band for weddings and special events.
With over 25 years experience in the North East of Scotland, Whigmaleerie's not-so-delicate blend of drums, fiddle, keyboards, guitars and vocals, gives them a contemporary sound although their inspiration is drawn on the traditional music of Scotland, Ireland and England.
Being a totally live band, not relying on backing tracks to enhance their sound, gives Whigmaleerie the flexibility to integrate and participate with their audience and gives a relaxing, fun loving feel to any event where they perform.
Whigmaleerie's selection of music and songs is not purely traditional Ceilidh, but offers a selection of titles from the 1950's through to the present day covers. This gives a wide variety of music to which anyone can dance to at your wedding, function, or corporate event and offers splendid entertainment for all ages and tastes. Something for everyone.
On the Ceilidh front, Whigmaleerie play and call all the popular Scottish country dances such as Eightsome Reels, Gay Gordons, Strip the Willow, Canadian Barn Dance, The Virginia Reel, Dashing White Sergeant and many, many more.
Calling the dances helps all those in the audience not familiar with the steps to have a go and primarily have fun. In addition, they also play a selection of traditional music from Ireland and Scotland which is always well received. But! that's not all, they even have their own 'Whigmaleerie Disco' if required.
