Show Description

Welcome to Blue Jewel Ceilidh Band! We are a much sought after, experienced, quality ceilidh and barn dance band, based in South Devon. We play mostly Irish tunes, some English & Scottish, and the odd European tune, like Troyka (have a listen to the mp3), that people love! We play as a trio (caller/bodhran/fiddle, fiddle, guitar/mandolin), 4-piece (plus bass), or 5-piece (plus bass and drums). Our caller, Kip, is relaxed and clear, and makes it all easy and fun. From novice dancers to the more experienced, children to the silver-haired, we can guarantee you'll have a great time...!

Biography

Blue Jewel Ceilidh Band have been together since 2012, and have established a firm reputation as one of the finest ceilidh bands in South-West England. Kip Pratt (caller/fiddle/bodhran) and Mike Vickery (boozouki / mandolin) have played together in other bands for donkey's years, and asked Steve Banks (fiddle/calling/drums) to join them to create the distinctive Blue Jewel sound. Superb bass guitarist, Pat Butterly, completes the full line-up.

Hi Steve, I just wanted to say a big thank you for the party on Saturday night, it went down a storm! My wife loved it (she's the important one, as it was her surprise party), and so did everybody else! Even the couple of teenagers that were there joined in! It literally was 8 to 80 years old's, although in didn't notice my mother in law dancing (she has had both hips replaced). I thoroughly recommend 'Blue Jewel Ceilidh Band' and will pass on your details to anybody looking for entertainment! Thanks again! Kevin
