About scallywag

Scallywag are an experienced, energetic band providing dance music for your wedding, birthday or fund-raising event.

Scallywag wedding barn dance

Based on the Devon and Somerset border, we have over 25 years experience in running ceilidhs and barn dances for weddings, parties, social dances and charity fund-raising across the South-West from Plymouth to Cardiff and down to Bournemouth

Our influences are drawn from traditional folk music of Irish, English and French origin mixed with Reggae, Rock and Jazz (nice) creating infectious dance styles designed to appeal to all tastes.

The usual line up of the band is four musicians drawn from fiddle, whistles, mandolin/mandola, guitar/octave-mandolin and bass guitar.

This instrumental versatility enables the band to switch from a traditional to a contemporary line-up with ease. We carry our own caller which will be included in the price you are quoted.
