About Modhan

Modhan have been performing at ceilidhs, weddings, corporate functions and parties since 2002. Since that time they have built up an enviable reputation and enjoy an extremely full calendar, often filled months in advance. They can play for and call all of your favourite dances, and can augment any ceilidh with several original dances of their own composition. In addition to performing at ceilidhs and functions, Modhan regularly perform their original music at concerts, gigs and sessions in Edinburgh, Glasgow and further afield. They travel extensively throughout the country and will accept enquiries from all over the UK. Members of the current line-up regularly tour all over the World with a variety of international acts, with recent tour destinations including Australia, New Zealand, North America, and Continental Europe.

Modhan are available for corporate functions, weddings, civil partnerships and other types of events. They can provide ceilidh music, background music, concert music and pop covers on request, along with a high spec PA and stage lighting system to suit all venues.
