Come to the Ceilidh for a good time!
The Gaelic word Ceilidh simply means an informal social get-together. In bygone days neighbours would gather around the warmth of a peat fire in a thatched cottage and spend long winter nights in story and song. The ceilidh was entertainment and much more.
Please come and have a merry time of good food, fun, dancing and Celtic entertainment. We'll have a welcome mat out for you!
Join us Saturday June 15th after the last Massed Bands around 5:30pm in the Refreshment tent for a Celebration of our 50th Anniversary with the band Hadrian's Wall
Anyone lucky enough to visit the historic Hadrian's Wall bordering Scotland and England is at once filled with awe and excitement by its striking strength and breadth. Those lucky enough to see the Canadian band of the same namesake enjoy a similar sensory experience. Hailing from Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec, the six seasoned members that make Hadrian's Wall deliver an impressive blend of Irish, Scottish and Canadiana music fused with elements of Jazz and Rock.
Hadrian's Wall has recorded and toured eight albums since 1995 as well performed at some of the biggest Celtic and World Festivals in North America, The Caribbean, and Europe. All of the band's members enjoy a variety professional music pedigree that together makes Hadrian's Wall a formidable, professional and entertaining ensemble for all music audiences. Come see why Hadrian's Wall is a must see at any festival.
Hadrian's Wall is Neil Emberg (Vocals, Acoustic Guitar), Richard Irwin (Vocals, Drums), Terry O'Farrell (Vocals, Bass), Dave Gossage (Irish Flutes, Harmonica, Whistles and Electric Guitar), Ashley MacLeod (Vocals, Fiddle, Accordion) and Ewen McIntosh (Vocals, Mandolin, Bouzouki, Guitar).
We will have special rooms for Highland Games guests at the King George Inn
