STROMA FOLK & CEILIDH
Traditional British Folk And Dances
An incredible way to include all guests regardless of age or previous Ceilidh background. Our experienced caller will guide you through all of the best group dances while our amazing band regale you with raring tunes from around the British Isles. We also provide background folk music and can provide custom arrangements of songs in a folk style.
Stroma have performed across the UK in many prestigious venues, including Blackheath Halls, The Islington Assembly Halls and The Hackney Round. Comfortable performing for any size of crowd, Stroma are excellent for any event where there is a range of ages, lots of strangers within an event or where an element of team building or blowing off steam is needed!

ROYAL ACADEMY OF MUSIC - 2020
“Strip the willow has never been done by so many people in one line!!! Not only did Stroma keep everyone on their feet the entire night, but their use of modern sounds with the traditional instruments made our ceilidh very unique. Their technical abilities are far beyond their years and their mastery of the repertoire is second to none. I would strongly recommend anyone thinking of having a ceilidh to book Stroma! A night to remember for sure!”
FUNCTION CEILIDH - 2019
“Stroma were a fabulous band who have been a pleasure to work with. We needed a Ceilidh band to perform at our work event and we couldn’t be happier with the performance given. Stroma band members are all a pleasure and we had no issues at all. They had their own equipment organised and everything ran smoothly. Everyone who came had an excellent time because of the fantastic atmosphere created by the whole band. Thank you and we hope to work together again!”
PRIVATE BIRTHDAY PARTY - 2018
“Stroma were a wonderful part of my 30th birthday party! People left vowing to dance ceilidh for the whole year and the whole room was dancing. They made us look as if we were the same ability and everyone in the room was smiling. They were so kind and considerate through the whole process. Can’t wait to ceilidh with them again.”
THE GUILDHALL SU
“It is impossible to experience Stroma play and not enjoy every second. This young, talented group combine incredible musical skill with intricate knowledge and understanding of the ceilidh and folk music craft to consistently produce high quality, joyful and exciting performances. I defy you not to dance at one of their gigs”
