A POPULAR Scottish band will be performing at a dance at the British Legion this month.

Ceilidh Minogue have described themselves as the country's “favourite ceilidh band” and will be playing at the New Row venue on May 27.

It will see the three-piece act, consisting of a drummer, accordion player and fiddler, perform between 8-11pm.

Alastair Morrow, who has played with most of Scotland’s top musicians on the jazz, rock and traditional music scene, is the drummer for the band. He said: “The band has been together for over 20 years and has performed at weddings, parties, celebrations and corporate events throughout the UK and Europe.

“We have played venues from village halls to places like Dundas Castle, Gleneagles Hotel, Stirling Castle and Edinburgh Castle, Indonesia, Tunisia, Lithuania, Belgium, Azerbaijan and Bahrain, and weddings in Portugal, France and Germany.

“We appeared live on the BBC Radio Scotland’s Hogmanay show for eight years from 2008 to 2016.

“We played at the Trad Awards ceilidhs from 2014-19 and at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow as well as the Rudolstadt Festival in Germany in 2017, the Schotland Festival in Belgium in 2009 and at the Orkney Festival in 2010.

“We play all the classic ceilidh dances, such as the Gay Gordons and the Dashing White Sergeant, in addition to newer, popular dances.”

The band is looking forward to playing in Dunfermline after COVID lockdowns caused two years of disrupted gigs.

Tickets for the dance are priced £15 each and are available on the Eventbrite website or by calling 07748736042.
