celebrating 20 years of music and dance!

This very popular ceilidh band celebrated its 20th anniversary just before lockdown and is still very much open for business.  The original Northern Lights members got together in 1999 and held their first ceilidh the following year. It was a roaring success and they have never looked back!

Over the years, Northern Lights Ceilidh Band have provided music for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, retirement and fancy dress parties, corporate events, christenings and funerals.  


We are based in the Tyne Valley of Northumberland but have travelled to venues all over the North of England. Some of the more sumptuous venues include Newcastle United Football Stadium, Durham Masonic Hall and Durham Town Hall, but many of the smaller venues are equally memorable for their charm and audience enthusiasm. 

What do we sound like?

Northern Lights’ instruments include concertina, fiddle, flute, melodeon, whistle/recorder and piano/guitar.  This blend of instruments creates a unique and exciting sound which will make you want to leap on to the dance floor.

Why not book this great ceilidh band for your own special occasion!
