“I had forgotten just how life-affirming a ceilidh can be. It had been three years since I last threw myself about with the entirely joyful and almost reckless abandon that comes with dancing with a good crowd to a great ceilidh band, but within minutes of the start of Ceol Mor’s gig I recognised that it had been three years too long.
The energy and familiarity with which the ensemble approaches the music, fuelled by the charm of caller Gordon Waterson’s easy and infectious enthusiasm, make Ceol Mor the perfect catalyst for having a very good time. From the first dance, almost every seat in the house was, and remained empty, with even the most reluctant of punters unable to resist the pull of traditional dances expertly delivered, and with such youthful vigour and a real sense of humour. My only complaint? I wasn’t even nearly ready to stop dancing as the final set drew to a close.
Whether because of a birthday party, a wedding, a reunion, or just because you’re in need of some high-quality, unadulterated fun, Ceol Mor will certainly deliver the ‘Big Music’ that the occasion demands”. Esmé Patey-Ford, London
“There can be no better ice breaker for a Freshers Week at a conservatoire of Music and Dance than Ceilidh, superbly hosted by the Ceol Mor Ceilidh Band. The common perception of performing arts students is that they are of unmitigated extravert character, only too ready to flaunt their wares. Not true, particularly for a truly international group of 1st year students of music and dance who are as shy as any other university novices.
Expertly fronted by Gordon Waterson, the audience was charmed and cajoled into an evening of delightful and frivolous entertainment, mixing dance steps and hilarity in equal measures.
The Ceol Mor Ceilidh Band achieved the impossible combination of rumbustious and slick accompaniment to tunes both familiar and new. Overall, the evening was the greatest of treats – fit for any occasion. “ Chris Caine, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance
