Point Five Ceilidh Band
We give good ceilidh.
Point Five is a Scottish band that brings a fresh, creative approach to traditional Scottish ceilidh music.
We'll discuss your event with you in advance, to make sure everything runs smoothly on the night.
Our dedicated caller will demonstrate and explain all the dances to make sure no-one misses out!
Point Five are a group of wonderfully talented and experienced musicians who have plenty of tunes to keep you going!
We had such good feedback about your performance! Everyone that came had a great time and that's definitely down to the superb music and also the very well-explained and inclusive calling. I honestly would not have believed that the majority of people dancing were new to ceilidh dancing from watching them, they all took to it really fast!"

No room for a ceilidh?
If a ceilidh is not quite what you are looking for, but you still want great live music with some traditional step-dancing thrown in, consider our performance/session band offshoot, The Household Names. We’ve played in some great places, like Kingshouse Hotel (Glencoe), Crofters Bistro (Arran), Beachcomber Bar (Machrihanish), and Ballachullish Hotel. Just follow the link to find out more!
