Melobo Ceilidh Wedding Barn Dance Band

Graham Hubbard | Charlotte Pascoe | Howard Hill

Wedding Receptions | Birthday Parties | Anniversaries | Fund Raising Events | Burns’ Nights | Garden Parties


Our caller is very friendly and very experienced in helping complete novices – as well those who’ve danced before. More often than not, we have mixtures of complete novices and those with some experience, but whoever your guests are – our emphasis is always on having fun!


We have an extensive repertoire of traditional and contemporary tunes – jigs, reels, slip jigs, hornpipes and polkas. Mainly English and Scottish, but some American and French ones too. We will adapt our sets to suit your event, so if you’re planning a Scottish theme, then please let us know.


We love playing at weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries, college balls and other celebrations, and are equally happy to play at village fetes, folk festivals, Christmas parties, Burns’ Nights and a Hogmanay knees up. Whether it’s a village hall, barn, field, big living room, or someone’s garden, we’ve played them all and will adapt to your situation.


Melobo has their own sound engineer, with pro sound equipment, so the quality of sound is excellent. All PAT tested of course. You can use one of our microphones to make announcements during your event.
