The House of Scotland Ceilidh Band band photo

'Cèilidh' is a word from the Gaelic meaning 'visit'. In the tradition of Scottish and Irish local communities, before TV and electronic media, villagers would gather at a neighbor's house or community hall and the participants take turns performing ... a fiddle solo, a poetic recitation, a song, a dance ... everyone present contributing something to the evening's entertainment. In contemporary Celtic culture, Ceilidh refers more generally to a 'party' - plenty of music, fun and good 'craic'.

The House of Scotland Cèilidh Band holds official rehearsals on the third Sunday of each month and performs at various House of Pacific Relations (Balboa Park) and Scottish/Celtic events throughout the year.

We are available for public performance including: Weddings/Engagements, Birthdays, Concerts, Anniversaries, Garden/Block parties, Dances, Street Fairs, Church events, Graduations, and 'Fill in the Blank'.

The current lineup includes two fiddles, mandolin, accordion, recorder, guitar, bass, and percussion.
