People ceilidh dancing in Orgiva, Andalucia, Spain

Andrew, Jules and Blake from Paddy’s Whiskers were recently back in Spain again on a mission to bring ceilidh or barn dancing to the masses…joining up with old friends and musicians from our travelling days, we formed “The Alpujarra Ceilidh Collective”…and played a massive ceilidh in the heart of the alternative community living around Orgiva, in las Alpujarras – the mountains south of Granada…the sun shone and we had an amazing time.

We’ll be back in the area before long so if you are interested in holding a ceilidh or barn dance, why not drop us an email to info@paddyswhiskers.co.uk

A Lovely Wedding Ceilidh Barn Dance At The Barn, South Milton, Devon

Guests ceilidh dancing at The Barn, South Milton, Devon

We had a truly marvellous time playing for Hannah and Ovi this weekend at the beautiful Barn, South Milton, Devon.

Andrew and Jules from The Whiskers were invited to play acoustic music for the wedding ceremony – including learning “Bridge Over Troubled Water (instrumental)” to play as Hannah walked up the aisle. After the ceremony we then played a set of sparkly celebratory tunes for guests during the drinks reception.

In the evening the rest of the band arrived and we played a wedding ceilidh or barn dance for 200 plus people..who were ALL up for dancing…it was massive…one of our biggest…and so great to have such a diverse multicultural crowd..we loved every minute. Thank you everybody.
