About us: 

The Redheughers Ceilidh Band is a long established country dance band co-operative, led and tutored by Robin Dunn. We meet, practise and play every Tuesday throughout the year. The band perform regularly, playing for Gateshead Ceilidh Club on the first Tuesday of each month, and also provide dance music and a caller for private functions.
We offer opportunities for people with some musical ability to:-
Experience the discipline of playing together in a band
Develop skills and expertise in musical execution
Learn a wide repertoire of dance tunes, including jigs, reels, hornpipes, waltzes, two-steps and "fillers"

The Redheughers are available to play for parties, weddings and charity events. We provide everything for a super ceilidh - caller, band and sound equipment. We are a large band but can bring a smaller group to suit your venue and occasion.

Every Tuesday evening (except for the first Tuesday in each month) we meet in a function room upstairs at the Gateshead Central Hotel for our practice sessions, which start at 6pm and finish at 8pm. Afterwards we usually go for a meal.

On the first Tuesday in the month, we play regularly for a ceilidh at our new venue, St Mary's Heritage Centre (beside the Sage building).

We are a very friendly bunch, if you would like to join us just come along to one of our practice sessions.
