ABOUT US

Formed around a fire in our local pub sessions 12 years ago the band has grown to a very busy and successful group playing Weddings, festivals, celebrations , parties, corporate functions, galas and pub/ hotel venues. We performed over 80 bookings & were chosen to contribute to a Channel 5 production in 2017.

We play a high energy mix of Ceilidh , covers and original material and all our members are multi instrumental. We are fortunate to have 3 vocalists in the line up. We can perform as a 2,3,4,5,or six piece according to your wishes and budget and in addition to the list provided also play small pipes, Bagpipes, mandolin, banjo, saxophone and whistles. We have our own p.a. set up for venues up to 500 people, although we are equally able to perform intimate acoustic sets for small venues, [url hidden]untry houses.

We can include dance calling for those unsure of the steps. We turn up on time, set up and sound check for each venue for optimum sound and a prompt start. We confirm all bookings in writing and give 100% on the night , catering for all tastes and ages.

Sept 2016 Clan Grant Ceilidh – The Grant Arms Hotel , Grantown on Spey
Dear BlackRock Ceilidh

I have had housefuls of visitors since we saw you at the Clan Grant Ceilidh, so I apologize for not writing to thank you sooner. It was just brilliant to have you all – a wonderful evening – I wish you could have been at our AGM the next day, one of our members (who had not been there) was a bit dreary about having a different band and how all the others who had been there immediately said it was the BEST thing that they had had for ages!! Loved the piping duo!
I believe Patrick has booked you for next year – at the heartfelt request of the members !
Please pass my thanks to all of the Band – it was just great!

East Sutherland Classic Car Tour Dinner/ Dance- Dornoch West Hall- May 2017
Hi ,

I meant to email you before this to say a big thank you to you and the rest of the band for giving us such a great night on the 27th. There have been many positive comments about you, so thank to you all for that. Have you been booked for next year? Think it's the 17th, same place.

Thanks again, you were all amazing ( but especially the bagpipes-Last of the Mohicans gets me every time! )

Carolynne & Darroch’s wedding – The Torridon Hotel , Nov 2017

Hi ,

Hope this finds you and the band well.

I wanted to say another thank you for playing at our wedding - Darroch and I had a great time and we've had nothing but compliments about you since the night. We both loved your version of Shining Star, as did our friends who knew it. I was also blown away by you taking on Kelly Marie's Feels like I'm in love. It was brilliant and one of my favourite moments of the weekend - it really got the party started!

I am not on Facebook, but Darroch has just put a post on your page. We have asked our family and friends if they have any pictures of videos of the night that we can share with you, and will let you know if anything worthwhile comes through.

Thanks again,

Carolynne and Darroch

Euan & Mark played at our wedding and all we can say is book them! They were fantastic. Our guests haven't stopped talking about how great the band was! They played music to suit everyone with some guests putting in requests. Euan even give us a ceilidh dance lesson. The songs they sang and the instruments they used created such a great atmosphere all the guests were dancing. Great musicians and vocalists. They really made our wedding reception an unforgettable night!
