The Robert Fish Band


The Robert Fish Band are available to play for weddings, celebrations and all kinds of ceilidhs. We’re based in Edinburgh but play for ceilidhs all over Scotland and beyond!

The Robert Fish Band have been getting folk on their feet in Edinburgh and beyond since the great ceilidh revival of the 1990s. We spend many an evening “walking the line between tradition and innovation with sparkling flair – and a highly contagious sense of fun” (Sue Wilson) and have played venues from Blackpool to Brittany, from Leipzig to Lochaber, from Glasgow Green to Gilmerton Miners’ Welfare Club. We play and call the steps for all the well-known Scottish ceilidh dances and a few of the more unusual ones besides, with a line-up of fiddle, accordion/whistle, guitar, bass and percussion.


A great groove for the dancing, and they do it all a wee bit differently – brilliant fun arrangements of the music and a good solid professional approach to the gig.” – Colin Blakey

Many thanks for playing and calling for our ceilidh at the Piping Centre as part of our wedding celebrations. Your playing was fantastic and it was great to have instructions for those unfamiliar with the dances! Many guests commented on what a great evening they had – thank you again for everything you did in making it such a success!” – Suzanne
