|The House of Scotland Ceilidh Band|
'Cèilidh' is a word from the Gaelic meaning 'visit'. In the tradition of Scottish and Irish local communities, before TV and electronic media, villagers would gather at a neighbor's house or community hall and the participants take turns performing ... a fiddle solo, a poetic recitation, a song, a dance ... everyone present contributing something to the evening's entertainment. In contemporary Celtic culture, Ceilidh refers more generally to a 'party' - plenty of music, fun and good 'craic'.
The House of Scotland Cèilidh Band rehearses twice a month on Sunday afternoons and performs at various House of Pacific Relations (Balboa Park) and Scottish/Celtic events throughout the year. We are available for weddings and other events as well.
The current lineup includes fiddles, mandolin, accordion, recorder, whistle, small pipes, guitar, bass, and percussion.
