Torsa is led by Grant McFarlane, finalist in the BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2017 and a graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
The band consists of accordion, fiddle and drums with all dances explained, and the steps demonstrated if necessary, so that even beginners can join in the fun. We offer a 2 piece band for more intimate events and a fuller four-piece line-up, with the addition of piano, for an even larger sound. Please note, instant quotes are based on prices for the three piece band.
If the ceilidh gets too much, we also include a disco in our set up so you can dance to the latest chart hits plus all the classics too.
We've performed all over Scotland in venues from castles and stately homes to church halls and conferences. We use state-of-the-art equipment and are passionate about what we do.

Just a quick note to let you know how excellent the Torsa Band were last Saturday for our ceilidh. The dance floor was never empty, and the evening was enjoyed equally by our guests from England who had never been to s full-blown Scottish ceilidh before, and by our Scottish guests who have been dancing at ceilidhs all their lives. To quote one of our Scottish veterans:
"It was good to see how everyone joined in the dancing, and thanks to the band, found new skills at Scottish country dancing they never new they possessed!!".
Please pass on our thanks to the band, and certainly I can recommend them to anyone looking for a good ceilidh band for a good evening.
And thanks to you at Hireaband for making the whole process of finding and booking a band so hassle-free. It can be pretty daunting to find a good band suit the occasion, but this is the second time we have booked through Hireaband, and we have not been disappointed on either occasion.
We booked Torsa for our wedding reception after hearing them perform at our work's Christmas party - they were brilliant!! My husband & I love that whilst they play all the classics they have a musical diversity better than any other band out there. The MC was hilarious and so much fun - I would choose Torsa every time!
I booked Torsa for a fundraising ceilidh and they really made the night a great success. Their music was excellent and the MC was great at getting everyone upon their feet! Enjoyed the night so much and after lots of praise from our guests we booked Torsa again for the following year. Once again we were not disappointed.
Previously our church had been using another Ceilidh band who are very good.As they were unavailable, Torsa were recommended to us. I have never before heard the level of applause given at the end of the night, as I did for Torsa. The feed back we received after our event was that the Ceilidh band were the best they had ever heard. We will always look to book Torsa first now!
Would just like to say a huge thank you for a great performance at my wedding! What a fantastic ceilidh band and great fun - we would definitely recommend you highly to anyone looking for a ceilidh band on their wedding day.
Wonderful night last night! I would highly recommend Torsa Ceilidh Band for any occasion. They play a wide range of music and Jim is an excellent compere who keeps you on the floor all night. They are all very friendly, very experienced and confident musicians.
Thank you so much for exceeding our expectations at our wedding in Strathblane Country House. Our guests had a ball and those from the north said "Now that's what you call a proper ceilidh!'
