Ceilidh for a corporate event in Marlin's Wynd, Edinburgh during the Edinburgh Festival. A very international group who had never ceilidh'd before. A great night was had by all!

Our next public ceilidh will be at the fabulous Sligachan Hotel on Skye on 15th April 2017   (well before midgie season - bonus!).  Music starts at 9pm and entry is free.  A great chance to put on your dancing shoes and see us live!  We can't wait!! 🙂



Dab Hand would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2017! We had a fantastic Hogmanay gig last night in Elie with a full dance floor all night and lots of craic!  We are looking forward to playing lots more ceilidhs over the next year and hope to see you there!

Thanks very much to Fiona Higgins Photography for sharing this picture of us at one of our autumn cèilidhs. Have a look at her website for more of her work. http://www.fionahigginsphotography.com/

Sarah from Dab Hand had a great time last week over in Zurich playing and calling for a ceilidh in aid of the charity Room to Read.  As with a lot of our ceilidhs, the event involved people from a large number of nationalities, many of whom had never been to a ceilidh before, making it all the more fun!  The event raised over £1200 for the charity, and the organisers hope to repeat the event in the near future.

Dab Hand had a fantastic gig last weekend in East Kilbride for a Friendship Party involving 9 different nationalities.  A first for the Dab Hand Band - we had some proper Canadians dancing the Canadian Barn Dance! Great Craic!

Wishing you all a very Happy March!  It is almost Easter and we are all very pleased to be seeing the back of the Scottish winter and looking forward to Spring. Hopefully we will see some warmer weather soon!

Things have been very busy recently at Dab Hand HQ, where we have been working on some exciting new material to record in the studio-stay tuned to hear these new tracks soon!

On top of this we've got a heap of great events to look forward to over the next few months - it's all go!
