What People Are Saying About Striding Edge

Dear Mike and the band, Thank you all for giving us such a wonderful ceilidh during our wedding reception in December. It was exactly what we wanted and we were delighted to see so many of our guests dancing and having such fun. The Aussie's had a brilliant time so we have got a few ceilidh dancing converts now!

Dear Mike, Many thanks to you and Striding Edge for playing at our wedding on the 13th October! We all loved your music and the ceilidh was great for us and our guests. Your Mixer Waltz certainly took the pressure off our first dance.
