Edinburgh ceilidh band
Da Hooley ceilidh band is based in Edinburgh, so it’s no big surprise that we play a lot of gigs in and around the city. We’ve had a busy week this week, with ceilidhs on Monday and Tuesday in Edinburgh, and a third ceilidh coming up at the end of the week in East Lothian.
On Monday we had an unusual daytime gig in a marquee on the east side of the city. It was a tad chilly for an outdoor gig. Suffice to say it was one of the most unusual gigs we’ve played in a while. We may never view our favourite Gay Gordons set in quite the same light again! A huge thanks to the folk who danced their socks off in the cold all day – it helped to thaw us all out a wee bit!
On Tuesday evening we were playing in the Scottish Story Telling Centre on the high street, for a Christmas party. The gig was fortuitously timed to finish well before the end of the session in the Whisky Bar just up the street, so we trotted up there for a few tunes before bedtime.
