Danse McCabre was formed in 2003 and soon
established itself as one of the premier ceilidh bands of
the North-East, performing throughout Scotland and
beyond, appearing in Norway, Poland, Slovenia and
Holland. Famous for their pink kilts and lively style, this
the all-female band plays an eclectic mix of rip-roaring
Scottish music with, some Irish and European music
thrown into the mix. All the dances are clearly
explained, demonstrated and walked through, so that a
rollicking and enjoyable ceilidh experience is
guaranteed, even for those who have never danced
Scottish dances before. Shetland fiddle-player, Claire
White, Keyboard player Anne Taylor and Whistle and
Bodhran player Helen Lynch together constitute ‘A
fantastic all-girl ceilidh band with an excellent Dance-
Caller’ (Real Weddings Magazine) and will give you an
an evening to remember: ‘Their musicianship and
the professionalism really stands out’ The Musicians’
Polish Scottish Song and Story Group, led by Janice
Clark, and co-ordinated by the Elphinstone Institute at
the University of Aberdeen, will be performing songs to
celebrate the musical cultures of both countries.
