Default Ceilidh Music

Hi Folks,

two friends of mine and me have started a Ceilidh Band recently. Although I have some music we are looking for a repertoire of reels, hornpipes, jigs - easy to play and effective, too.
Any suggestions?

All the Best

For a ceilidh band, a smattering of strathspeys would be good, plus...

A Gay Gordon's set:
Gay Gordons, Scotland The Brave, Rowan Tree, Mairi's Wedding, ( as many 4/4 or 2/4 marches as you can string together) ending with Gay Gordons.

(For any set of dance tunes, ending with the tune you started is a signal to the dancers that the end is approaching).

Polkas and scottisches might be a good addition too.
