Hud Yer Wheesht – funky Edinburgh Ceilidh Band !

Hud yer Wheesht
Welcome to the website of Hud Yer Wheesht, we are a 4 or 5-piece funky Edinburgh ceilidh band. Whatever the occasion, we emphasise the fun in ceilidhs and try to make it a good night for all.

We play at sports clubs, weddings, student functions, conferences, private parties, charity fundraisers in Scotland and occasionally farther afield. Read some of what people have said about us.

With a typical line-up of drum kit, guitar, bass, flute and fiddle, we are an experienced and professional sounding band, and with a decent PA system we can set up with minimal fuss. 23 years of getting folk up and dancing at ceilidhs has not diminished our enthusiasm.

We keep it simple by sticking to the easier dances – plus a couple of surprises up our sleeve, we’ll explain them all if required, but we’ve a pretty good idea of what will work and what won’t work with a given crowd of folk. We’re used to calling dances where a large portion of the guests don’t know what to do, and if people just want to have a free for all and boogie around, thats fine with us.
