Meet the Band

Fiddle Paradiddle is a professional ceilidh and barn dance collective that has performed at over 300 events across the UK and Europe since 2012. Our high energy playing, clear and informal calling style, and traditional tunes with a modern twist have made us first choice for hundreds of weddings, corporate functions and parties up and down the country.


From humble beginnings as a three-piece band of friends in 2011, Fiddle Paradiddle has grown to be a collective of players who share a love for lively folk music, energetic dancing, and the art of hoisting tartan bunting. When you hire Fiddle Paradiddle you will get a three-piece band made up of fiddler, guitarist and drummer. Our musicians double up as callers and bring the dancefloor to life as we explain and demonstrate the dances to you before getting started with the music.
