The Newlyn Reelers folk dance band for barn dances, ceilidhs, country dances, weddings, parties and other events


The Newlyn Reelers, based in West Cornwall, is a popular, well-established barn dance band (Ceilidh band), playing traditional English, Irish, Scottish and American music. Our accomplished group of folk musicians are accompanied by a caller, who explains the dances to all comers, whether complete beginners or experienced dancers, making the dancing enjoyable and accessible to all.

We have our own amplification, and can play in village halls, hotels, barns, clubs, marquees, or wherever there is space to dance and play.  A live traditional folk band can enhance your event, including socials, parties, weddings, harvest homes, birthday celebrations, schools, colleges, festivals, etc.  Barn dances (sometimes called social dances, folk dances or ceilidhs) are good for mixed groups and are suitable for all ages!  The band usually plays a three-hour session, with a break in the middle for refreshments, etc.
