First Light Ceilidh Band

Lively Irish & Scottish music from young, dynamic Cambridge based band

First Light | Cambridge Ceilidh

Cambridge Ceilidh | First LightA young and energetic Cambridge ceilidh band playing traditional and contemporary folk music in Cambridgeshire and surrounding counties, the band have an infectious enthusiasm that is sure to get guests onto the dance floor and immediately engaged. And once they’re up there, a friendly, patient caller will guide their feet with a smile.

Musically, the band draws upon Scottish, Irish and American traditions, supplementing these with original compositions to create a distinctive, exciting sound you won’t forget. Whistles, pipes, fiddle, guitar and drums all feature in the core line-up. Clever use of technology allows the guitarist to add a rich bass line to a blend of distinctive harmonies and driving rhythm, which proves popular with listeners and dancers alike.

First Light usually performs as a four-piece band – with two tune players and two rhythm players – along with an experienced caller. Individual band members have performed at leading festivals including Cambridge Folk Festival.
