Ceilidh 'Till Sundown

Part of Summertime

Put on your dancing shoes for a rip-roaring Ceilidh and foot-stomp all the way till sundown with Cut A Shine.

Learn the steps of this Gaelic tradition of folk music and dancing from ceilidh callers, while a host of musicians keep you in time.

Cut A Shine are a London-based troupe of traditional musicians, dynamic Ceilidh dancers and crazy callers determined to spread the word that the hoe down is a’happening. From Hoxton to Humberside, Amnesty to Bestival, Cut A Shine are putting ceilidh dance back on the map – whether at sell out London Ceilidh dances or barn dances at top summer festivals. They host a rip-roaring, thigh-slapping, pavement-stomping, exhilarating,  barn dance and Ceilidh show. Whilst the banjo and the fiddle set the tone, the callers instruct any audience through do-si-dos and strip the willows, until all are involved.

All levels of dance ability welcome.
