are flexible enough as regards personnel, instrumentation and musical style to be able to tailor a band to each client's specific requirements. The band go out as anything from a duo to a six-piece,
amplified or acoustic, with or without a caller.
Mick Bailey (guitar/vocals), Eugene Teevan (accordion) and Mick O'Connor (tenor banjo) form the "core" of the band. Other instruments such as fiddle, flute, tin-whistle, double bass or percussion may also be added. Speciality instruments such as Scottish or Irish bagpipes, bodhran or traditional dancers are also available by arrangement (subject to availability & musical considerations).
Our most common format for a ceilidh consists of four musicians plus a caller who will teach the dances from scratch - no experience needed! A Ceilidh is ideal for a successful party, as it is a fun way to get families, friends and colleagues to mix and meet and because all age groups become involved.
We will bring all necessary instruments and equipment. All we need is a standard 13-amp power supply.
Please consult our giglist if you would like to see the band and let us know which Wraggle Taggle performance you would like to come to. We recommend that you come to an event similar to the one you are planning. We will need to ask permission before inviting you to private functions.
