    Our First Film: Out Of Milk

    A few months ago, when my two wee boys had a day off school, Fiona left for work when the three of us were still lazing about in bed. She lay a video camera on the end of the bed and said, “I want you to make a film by the time I get home.” I think she was expecting something short and rough but we decided to do the job properly. Below is the result… enjoy!

    Memories Of The Ceilidh Bandidos’ First Gig

    I can’t quite remember how our first gig came about (care to shed some light on this guys?) but it was for a wedding at a very nice house near Lochgilphead, Mid Argyll. I think the house belonged to the parents of the bride and they had laid on quite an impressive spread. There was the main marquee for dining and dancing, a second marquee with a sumptuous buffet and they were both joined to the main house by wooden floored and covered walkways.

    The Smell Of Dancing

    When the Ceilidh Bandidos first formed in 2001 we decided to announce our birth to the world through the medium of the West Highland’s largest (literally) newspaper, The Oban Times.

    Strathspè Away

    I was in Kingussie this weekend taking part in a festival of dance called Strathspè Away. The festival is primarily about teaching traditional dance, but also incorporates some contemporary forms such as hip hop and salsa.
