The Band

Stravaig are a highly experienced band with an impressive live sound. The band delivers a mixture of traditional and contemporary tunes and arrangements; the unique, driving style of the band mixed with enthusiastic dance calling creates and uplifting atmosphere at events all over the country.


What to expect

 For ceilidhs, every line-up includes an experienced caller able to walk guests through all of the dances. The combination of enthusiastic dance calling and a driving live sound creates an uplifting atmosphere at our events.

Generally the band will perform as a four piece, as this option gives the best combination of a full sound and value for money. The band does however have a versatile line-up which can be tailored to suit every event on request, ranging from a three piece band for smaller events up to the full six piece line-up.
