Maggoty, a five-piece ceilidh band
The five members of Maggoty are experienced musicians, performing for weddings, private parties, corporate functions and folk events throughout Manchester, Cheshire, the North West and beyond in the various line-ups they have played in.
Maggoty usually appear as a five piece band and the instrumentation includes melodeon, concertina, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, mandola, rauschpfeife, shawm, crumhorns, curtal, recorders, oboe, bagpipes, and percussion.
The band plays English, Scottish, Irish and French dance music, and you can be sure of a lively evening.
Maggoty provides a full PA system and a caller to explain the dances so no previous experience is necessary. We cater for all abilities from the absolute beginner to the experienced "ceilidh goer!"
All you need do is provide a venue and willing dancers. We'll do the rest!
