Ceilidh bands play very traditional Celtic music, usually trying to be faithful to the original style. Audiences are expected to dance in formation usually to a varied selection of traditional Irish, Scottish, Welsh and English folk songs. Traditionally Scottish ceilidh bands are a popular choice of entertainment at celebrations like St. They may also play at themed nights or charity events. The dances are simple, the steps are easy to pick up and this makes them suitable for guests of all ages. Ceilidh groups come in various shapes and sizes, depending on which instruments the musicians play. Fiddles, guitars, accordions and whistles are popular instruments among many backing bands but some choose keyboards, electric guitars, harmonicas, mandolins and varying choices of percussion, occasionally even choosing to include a full drum kit. The role of a caller is to call out the dances; Circle, long-way sets, squares, waltzes… there are plenty to choose from and everyone usually gets to make a new partner through every dance.

In its most basic form, it simply means a social visit. In contemporary usage, it usually involves dancing and playing Gaelic folk music , either at a house party or a larger concert at a social hall or other community gathering place. Originally, a ceilidh was a social gathering of any sort, and did not necessarily involve dancing. The 'ceilidh' is a literary entertainment where stories and tales, poems and ballads, are rehearsed and recited, and songs are sung, conundrums are put, proverbs are quoted, and many other literary matters are related and discussed. On long, dark winter nights it is still the custom in small villages for friends to collect in a house and hold what they call a "ceilidh" pronounced kay'lee. Young and old are entertained by the reciters of old poems and legendary stories which deal with ancient beliefs, the doings of traditional heroes and heroines, and so on. Some sing old and new songs set to old music or new music composed in the manner of the old. In more recent decades, the dancing portion of the event has usurped the older meanings of the term, though the tradition of guests performing music, song, story telling and poetry still persists in some areas. Ceilidhs were originally hosted by a fear-an-tigh , meaning "man of the house". This is still the form in Ireland, though otherwise in modern ceilidhs the host is usually referred to more simply as "Host" or "Master of Ceremonies".
