The Sussex Irish Band specialise in Celtic entertainment, Ceilidhs, Irish themed events, weddings and parties and can offer upbeat 'sing-along' Irish songs alongside traditional songs and ballads.

The band has been performing for over 20 years with new young players always eager to join. It has been a pleasurable mix of weddings, parties and functions wherever some Irish or Scottish music is required.

Ceilidhs & Barn Dances

The Sussex Irish Band provide a traditional line up for Barndances/Ceilidhs and can entertain your guests, providing a dance caller, who will give you all the instructions & musicians to keep your feet tapping. The band line up for ceilidh is: Accordion, Fiddle, Whistles and Guitar.

The repertoire includes a selection of fast & slow dances that cater for all ages and abilities. Ceilidhs/Barndances are ideal for weddings and parties, as well as Burns & St. Patrick’s Night events.

Irish Nights

The line-up for this is: Vocals, guitar, fiddle, whistle and accordion. The Sussex Irish Band play a mixture of romantic ballads, foot tapping party songs & some driving jigs & reels. The aim is a tempting mixture of material from the traditional to "The Pogues" & "Saw Doctors".

Expect to hear: Dirty Old Town, Fields of Athenry, I Used to Love Her, Irish Rover, Whiskey in the Jar, Wild Mountain Thyme, Wild Rover, Parting Glass, assorted Sea Shanties and of course those jigs and reels.


The PA system provided has more than ample capacity for providing a disco at the end of the night, and many couples choose to play their own selection of music using a Spotify Playlist or similar through our PA. Alternatively we can play a selection of proven music that will keep the party going. Recorded music can also be used as background for quiet periods.
