Columcille Ceilidh Band

Columcille Ceilidh Band is having a career break! The band has enabled musicians with and without learning disabilities to play music for a range of events. We have  played a total of 385 events in our 14 years as a work experience band, events ranging from music workshops to conference and wedding ceilidhs. If you would like to see a list of our events please click Columcille Ceilidh Band Events 2003-2017 . We have met many wonderful people and been to great places and had rewarding experiences and several challenges. However,  the band organiser, Alison, has left and no-one has come forward to take on the role.

We can pass booking enquiries on to a group formed from some of our musicians  and bookings relating to the  Music for ALL can be passed onto thenew Music for ALL Band.

A documentary film “About A Band”  features 7 ceilidhs/events and interviews with band members and guest appearances. The film has been shown at the Glasgow Film Festival, the “Picture This” Film Festival in Canada and the 2011 International Folk Music Film Festival in Nepal (where the film won a commendation award).  Also at Paisley Arts Centre as part of Glasgow Film Theatre’s strand “Great Scots on Tour”.  To listen, please click on white arrow in red box below.
