Our annual musical fishing tour gave rise to
"The Trooters" , a band comprising accordionist Gregor Lowrey, Jim Leighton on keyboard and yours truly on fiddle. Repertoire is, as you would expect, mainly traditional Scottish, but with a few extras thrown into the mix for good measure!
Looking forward to
THE TROOT TOUR 2017
(See the Troot Tour pages for details)
AND .... "The Trooters" can become ....
"The BIG Trooters"! .... the ideal ceilidh band for your event!
The usual fiddle, accordion & piano trio can be augmented to suit requirements. Add drums, bass, 'cello, guitar .... whatever suits! And a caller to guide those new to ceilidh dancing! If you think this may be the band you need, please leave a message in the visitors' book.
Quotes from happy clients:
"Thanks so much for doing such a great job at the party. You really got everybody going and got the level of fun dances just right! Thanks too for staying way past midnight! You are definitely experts in party management and it was hugely appreciated!"
"Thank you so very much for all your musical help at our wedding last weekend. Many of our friends and relatives are still talking about how the string music in the afternoon helped people to feel at ease and mingle. Then there was the ceilidh - it was the best anyone had ever been to!"
"Saturday turned out to be exactly as we had hoped. We were wanting a relaxed evening based around some food, drink and great music and you and the rest of the band played a big part in making it work perfectly.
We were delighted that both the music and the very helpful and patient caller got everyone up on their feet to enjoy themselves. The music itself was just superb and many guests have since commented on your playing - it really made for a fantastic evening with exactly the right atmosphere. Your solo playing earlier in the evening was a great bonus too, getting the evening started.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to anyone else wanting to arrange a great party."
