BARN DANCE / CEILIDH  

Corkscrew are an entertaining established band with first class musicians and lively MC/caller/professional dancer to host the occasion. Ranked as one of the best barn dance bands, Corkscrew provide music and fun for all ages.

Corkscrew cater for Barn Dances, Ceilidhs, Weddings, Parties, Corporate and Themed Events (including a Cowboy Theme), etc.

No previous knowledge of barn dancing is required for your function. Our encouraging 'caller' puts you through your paces, patiently explaining the various figures, and gauging the general ability of the group, to 'call' dances to suit the standard. Above all, FUN is the name of the game, and everyone is included.
