When Kate & Roddy formed Dancing Feet Ceilidh Band in 2007, the idea was to bring new energy and life into ceilidh…and from there it turned into their passion.
We have found a way of making a big sound with a small band. We have created this new sound using a loop pedal to build up the rhythm and backing – this is all done live, there are no backing tracks. The fiddle, guitar and cajon can all be looped, giving a great backing to the flute, fiddle pipes and sax that are so distinctive in the Dancing Feet sound.
A unique ceilidh duo that is perfect for those that want something a bit different. And it's great for both small parties and large events.
Not only conquering the British Isles, Dancing Feet annually tour France in March and play music all the way down to the South. Playing for French dance associations coloured their musical life, infusing all influences gathered on their journey to make them one of the most progressive and innovative Ceilidh Bands out there.
As if this wasn’t quite enough, in the summer of 2014 Dancing Feet attempted to break the world record for the Worlds Biggest Ceilidh! 1500 willing participants lined the streets of St Andrews, but they didn’t quite strip the willow…well, not this time.
Thank you both so much for an excellent fun ceilidh on Saturday. The music was superb and commented on by so many people, and really found helpful that you were able to guide us through so many of the dances! If ever I need to book a ceilidh band again (or anyone else i know) will be sure to recommend you. (Jonathon Reeves, Dundee)
Many thanks for a fantastic evening of entertainment on Saturday - it was great to run through different formats - and the cabin acoustic session was a terrific way to end the evening - very much appreciated by all. (Steve Cunningham, East Linton)
Just emailing to thank you so much for your fantastic music and calling last Saturday night! You were so clear and professional and the richness of the different instruments (especially considering there was only 2 of you) was incredible. I was so impressed that I’ve been recommending you to all of my friends and colleagues and everyone there on the night was commenting on how good you were! (Clare Hyatt, Edinburgh)
