Thank you to the band for a fantastic ceilidh! (International Conference ceilidh at the EICC, 7 October 2015) . You really set the bar high for any future GAPA conference. The congratulations were abundant the next morning.    When I asked if everyone had slept well after the ceilidh there was a round of applause. It was great to see so many nations coming together and actually enjoying the dances, which they did in style. We did not wish the conference to appear all "haggis and heather" but we certainly wanted the world to see some of our traditions - and that we did. Please pass on my sincere thanks to the band members.

The band really made Stan's recent retirement ceilidh (at the Robert Douglas Memorial Institue, Scone on 21 August 2015) an enjoyable celebration, with a good mixture of slow and fast dances, including a few especially for the younger guests! Their direction enabled everyone to join in regardless of their knowledge of the dances. Would certainly be pleased to call upon the band again in future and would recommend to anyone looking for a good ceilidh.

The Skelpit Lug Ceilidh Band made my fundraising event a terrific night (at the Masonic Hall, Kincardine on 5 September 2015).  As you talked us through the dances etc, the guests were eager to participate and the floor was always full.   I need to come up with another reason to have a ceilidh as everyone enjoyed it so much. Your input was appreciated and actually made our night a success, the total raised for Vasculitis Charity was £2310.  Thanks again for making our night great.

Our friends all thoroughly enjoyed themselves at our Ruby Wedding (at the Cathedral Hall, Dunblane, on Saturday 29th August 2015), despite most of them professing to be non-dancers. The fact that they could join in was largely due to the wonderful way you conduct a ceilidh, with enthusiasm and clarity of direction, and just the right amount of persuasiveness. There was a nice balance of gentle and more vigorous dances and many people commented on the great variety! Everyone enjoyed the music too, including those who couldn't dance, and there were comments as well on how refreshing it was to be able to talk - and hear - unlike at a disco. Please thank the band for making the evening such a great success.
