Ceilidh and barn dance band for London and the UK

Trio ceilidh and barn dance band Fiddle Paradiddle reside in South West London and perform across the UK for weddings, corporate functions and parties. A must have for all social gatherings! Give us a call/email to see if we are available.

Fiddle Paradiddle – Licence to ceilidh pending.

Spirited, energetic folk band Fiddle Paradiddle feature fiddle, percussion, guitar, flute, harmonium and mandolin. We have a set list of well known country dances that are played at most ceilidhs up and down the UK. The music we play is traditional but our sound is made for a modern audience, pushing the current love for new folk sounds.

We are a ceilidh band for all occasions, big or small, posh or humble.

Some recent snippets of ceilidh tunes we play. We’ll be recording more in the future so please check out our what we play section for updates.

Yes, We did a Mannequin Challenge

Everyone else is doing it, but we thought we’d give it a go. Thanks to (99.999% of) everyone who got in the spirit and posed like a pro!

Come along to our next Ceilidh Night and see what next viral craze we’ll try out!


This year at our Oktober Ceilidh we arranged a brass Oompah section for some of the tunes. Great Fun!
