Friday 6 July
Stonehaven Town Hall

Workshop details


A welcome return to the Occasionals ceilidh band. 

The Occasionals are widely regarded as one of the foremost Scottish Ceilidh Dance Bands and have been playing since 1986. At that time performances were infrequent (hence the name) but after the release of their first CD that soon changed, though the name stuck.

Equally at home playing for Ceilidh, Old Time, or Scottish Country Dance, the band also include concert work, are regulars on TV and radio, have 7 best-selling CD's to their credit, and are all well-known solo performers. As the leading folk music magazine Folk Roots put it - "If you want straight down the line dance music you can't do much better than The Occasionals".
