Nathaniel Gow’s Dance Band: Ceilidh Nights at Òran Mór
Party like it’s 1799! Celebrate the roots of ceilidh dancing in tunes and dances from 18th-century Scotland.
Nathaniel Gow’s Dance Band: Ceilidh Nights reinvent the 18th-century ceilidh, bringing together early music group Concerto Caledonia with some of the leading lights in Scottish traditional music, including fiddlers Lauren MacColl, Marie Fielding and Shona Mooney, and viola player, dancer and singer Mairi Campbell.
The band performs completely acoustically, with a line-up of gut-strung fiddles, cello, and Scottish small-pipes, all in 18th-century set-up. The night takes the format of a modern Scottish ceilidh, with a team of callers including Mairi Campbell and Steve Player, leading a range of high-energy dances from strathspeys and reels to quicksteps and country dances. The dance steps and music are taken from the often ignored wealth of 18th-century Scottish sources, brought to life through a rich tapestry of traditions and musical styles.
Not to be missed: bring your dancing shoes and join us for a wonderful night of music and dancing!
Monday 23rd January & Monday 27th March at Òran Mór
