As seen on TV such as ITV “This Morning” with Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, the Borland Ceilidh Band, from Kilmarnock and Irvine, are one of Scotland’s music and cultural gems. Formed in 26 February 2011, the band started off as a three piece outfit with John C Grant on fiddle, Ewin Murray on bodhran and Alasdair MacKay on guitar. The band quickly expanded, with the line-up changing several times along the way until early 2015.

The band started with the sole purpose of being an all inclusive ceilidh band with energetic traditional music. Everyone can enjoy a ceilidh, no matter how many dances they know. Our dedicated dance instructor remains on the floor all night to ensure that everyone can fully participate. We also pick the dances, and tempo, to suit the dancers so that the ceilidh remains inclusive and fun for all.

The band members have such varied musical experiences from African gospel to punk, psychobilly and blues, that our traditional arrangements, whilst rooted deeply to the Scottish idiom, spread across all walks of life. This is the full Scottish experience, no gimmicks, no cringe – this is Ayrshire culture at it’s finest.
