The Bristol Ceilidh Quartet brings together three experienced English folk fiddlers and a fab cellist to make a big string sound with loads of energy and drive. The band take great tunes and create exciting arrangements exploring the dynamic range of the string quartet. This isn’t serious classical music though, all the musicians have spent many years playing for traditional dance; every tune is calculated to get feet tapping and people on the dance floor.
“One of the most energetic and percussive ceilidh bands playing anywhere right now- their gigs are unmissable.” – Ed Barrow, Bristol Ceilidh
Based in Bristol, we usually play in Somerset, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Dorset, although we can travel further afield.
