Here are some lovely testimonials from folks who have been to our ceilidhs:

“Thanks for a wonderful evening at Phoenix Ceilidh. We had so much positive feedback from our regular ceilidh goers who had not come across you before that you will be at the top of the list when we are booking bands for next year. Hopefully we will see you at some of the larger festivals soon.” Murray Riggs (Phoenix Ceilidhs)

“Ben Farmer calls an excellent ceilidh with easy to follow instructions that people with no prior experience can pick up, but are still exciting for the experienced ceilidh goer, with many places to add flourishes. He calls a variety of types of dance: waltzes, polkas, reels and the occasional Israeli dance. He includes popular moves such as stripping the willow, the basket and threading the needle. Price of My Pig ceilidhs are called with enthusiasm and an excellent sense of humour, making the dances fun for all ages, from children to retired. I must have been to half a dozen Price of My Pig ceilidhs this year and have enjoyed every one.”  Rob Lorimer (Lancaster University Folk Society)

“Ben and his band provided a hell of a surprise party for my mum’s 60th! Their ability to integrate with our extended friends and family, both in terms of the ‘surprise’ moment, the food and the speeches was superb, and really meant we were able to make it personal to mum. She hasn’t stopped beaming since, and commented that having a ceilidh meant that we could enjoy the dance on our own terms, and also chat to reunited friends and family with some excellent background music. From young to old, everyone had a blast!”  Victoria Grant (Private Clients)

“Thanks very much to ‘Price of my Pig’ for playing at the EAUC Conference event at Lancaster University last week.  The Ceilidh was excellent and the feedback from delegates was that they thoroughly enjoyed your performance.  Many thanks indeed for helping to make a really good evening”.  Jonathan Mills, Lancaster University
