Festival Ceilidh Jim Mackay Dance Band 2015

Salutation Hotel, 20:00

This event was part of the 2015 Festival Programme.

The Ceilidh will be held at The Salutation Hotel in South Street, Perth.

Jim Mackay's Dance Band has been on the go since 1957. Originally from Caithness but moved to the Inverness area in the early 1980's, the band has always had a well established following in the north.  The band now consists of 3 generations of the Mackay Family.
Jim (button accordion player and renowned accordion teacher in Inverness), his son Tom on drums (been in the band since 1975) and Tom's son Graeme on accordion (a former accordion champion and solo musician in his own right).  The family element keeps the band strong and fresh, with all dances called, old tunes revived and a big sound that will get everyone dancing!
