S4N


spinach for norman


have been fuelling ceilidhs, barn-dances, weddings and all kinds of celebrations with jigs, reels and heart-broken airs for an effortless 30 years. And we’re proud to say that almost every booking has followed a recommendation from a satisfied customer.


We play mainly English, Irish & Scottish traditional dance musics so we can give you a mixed bag or a themed all-Scottish / Irish / English set. All of the band have been involved in other kinds of music, so we can add some French, American and even Transylvanian flavours if you’d like us to.

Unless you only want background or listening music, SPINACH comes with a caller to teach and lead the dances. Our regular caller is PAM HAYES. She’s hugely popular, great with adults, children, experienced and inexperienced dancers alike. She’ll add some dances from around the world into the mix if you want her to, and she can even call in French.

S4N CEILIDHS



SPINACH CEILIDHS ARE FOR EVERY CELEBRATION - Birthdays, Weddings, Anniversaries, Fund-raisers, Burns' Nights, St Patrick's Nights . . . you provide the dancers and we'll provide the band, the music, the caller and the PA.

A typical evening event lasts from 8 - 11.30 pm but timings are to suit you - ceilidhs can be any time and anywhere! For more information or advice, please get in touch - our contact details are at the bottom of the page.



WEDDINGS



SPINACH HAS PLAYED FOR WEDDINGS & CIVIL PARTNERSHIPS IN CASTLES, VILLAGE HALLS, BANQUETING HALLS, BARNS, LOOOOAAADS OF MARQUEES AND A FOUR-MAN TENT. We've lost count.

Every event is unique, so we're very flexible about starting and finishing times. We can provide background music when you would like some, but the heart of the event is usually the ceilidh dancing, the perfect ice-breaker and a chance for everyone to let their hair down.

Some shots from the stage . . .

PAM HAYES is our regular caller. Her dances are mainly traditional, suitable for everyone and quick and easy to learn.

She'll consult you to find out exactly how you want the evening to go and can offer some special wedding dances if you would like them. There's one for blessing the bride & groom, for instance - much wilder than it sounds - and another for giving them a traditional Scottish farewell as they leave for their honeymoon . . .
