Ceilidh at South Hall, Edinburgh
On Burns night Da Hooley ceilidh band played at a Burns Supper celebration for students and alumni of Edinburgh University. The ceilidh was at South Hall in the Pollock Halls complex, near the Commonwealth Pool.
It was a busy evening, with a packed dance floor all night. Unusually for a Burns Supper, there were very few locals at the event. There were students from around the world getting up to dance, who had never seen ceilidh dancing before, never mind trying it out. So Drew’s calling skills came into their own. It didn’t take long to get folk birling round the dance floor as if they’d been doing it all their lives, though. There was a whole lot of energy in the room from then on. We had a ball!
