With our unique combination of English, Irish, Scottish, American and Jewish music, coupled with both home grown and well known dances, the Green Kite Ceilidh Band offer a dance experience like no other.
Born at an impromptu barn-dance at the Climate Camp in the City in April 2009, the band continues to follow its vision of using the power of music and fun to bring people together for good causes.
In keeping with this principle, we operate as a collective. No two Green Kite ceilidhs are the same, but every one will carry our quirky signature blend of the traditional and the radical. Instruments which could appear on the night include include: bodhran, fiddle, mandolin, flute, guitar, piano, banjo or bass. Don’t worry about the steps, we’ll take you through them on the night. ... read more
Since our formation in April 2009, we've lost count of the the ceilidhs we've played for weddings, birthdays and good causes. Now we're reaching our 4th birthday, and we´d like to play for our friends, family and supporters, for fun. You're invited. We're also planning to change our name slightly. The upshot is that this will be Green Kite Midnight´s last ever gig, but the first ever public performance of the much more descriptively named Green Kite Ceilidh Band. We're putting the payment from our last gig towards subsidising this one, and tickets will be on a pay-what-you-like/pay-what-you can basis. Proceeds, if there are any, will go to good causes. It will be lots of fun with lots of nice people and a variety of people calling. Invite your friends! http://www.facebook.com/events/460529777352582/
