ADERYN PRIN CEILIDH BAND - BARN DANCE BAND - BAND TWMPATH DAWNS - Welcome to our website
CLWB TWMPATH BANGOR CEILIDH CLUB
Our first event at our new venue, ACADEMI, was a huge and well supported success! Academi is convenient and central in Bangor, next to the new Pontio building. It has a bar and a very good floor, and management and staff gave us and twmpathers a warm welcome. As usual it was pretty well non stop dancing, apart from cakes and the raffle. The next ceilidh is on the 21st of November, with clwb favourite Martin Hallet galvanising all into non stop ceilidh action. The years last event will be the Christmas is Coming bash on the 19th of September. Treat yourself to a break from that last minute Christmas shopping...
And....Our fiddler Nial's new Cd OES i OES - wearing his guitar-playing hat - with Cass Meurig - now released - so far Cerys Mathews has requested them to play on her show, a copy has been ordered by the National Library of Wales, and review copy and interview requested by FRoots magazine. You can listen to it in it's entirety HERE and also download or buy the CD.
After years of faithful service in the cause of CEILIDH, Aderyn Prin's longtime PA is being put out to grass. At the time we bought it, our Soundcraft mixeramp and Tannoy dual concentric speakers represented one of the finest small PA systems for accoustic music you could buy, certainly without paying silly money! We did buy a second set of speakers for really big venues, and it all fitted without an inch to spare in the band gear trailer. But technology moves on, and we recently treated ourselves to some new RCF powered PA speakers, that is to say, the amplification is contained in the speaker cabinet and matched specifically to the individual drivers.The new speakers are lighter than the old ones (VERY welcome at the end of a long night) despite containing electronics, but more importantly sound noticeably clearer and smoother than our old ones. And despite being smaller and lighter have all the power we could want in reserve for those bigger venues...

Ceilidh Band & Barn Dance Band ADERYN PRIN are North Wales’s hardest working and most popular Ceilidh Band - in fact, North Wales's favourite choice for a Ceilidh,Ceili, Barn Dance, Twmpath Dawns, Country Dance or Hoedown
Nial on fiddle or mandolin, with Annie on piano accordion lead the band, ably supported by the tight and driving rhythm section of Pete on guitar/vocals and Jerome on 5 string bass.
WE CAN TRANSFORM A SPECIAL EVENT - wedding, anniversary, function, corporate event, barn dance, ceilidh, twmpath or birthday party - into a celebratory evening to remember. And unlike a disco, you will find a ceilidh appeals across the generations - we regularly fill the dancefloor with everyone from tots to grannies!
DON'T WORRY THAT YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW THE DANCES - we work with the best and most experienced callers in the area. Our caller will explain and take you through each dance step by step , and then, if needed will also call as the dance progresses. And with our repertoire including anything and everything from stately waltzes to the meltdown frenzy of Strip the Willow, it’s huge fun and it doesn’t matter if you’ve never danced a step before.
WE BRING OUR OWN SOUND SYSTEM AND CALLER - and will, of course, work flexibly to your requirements on the night - be it wedding dance, anniversary, function, corporate event, birthday party...whatever your celebratory evening. And, as a North Wales band, if required a sizeable part of our repertoire is from Wales, and we work with several callers who are delighted to get the opportunity to call an entire Twmpath in Welsh...we are equally at home conducting dances in either language or bilingually throughout the evening.
IF YOU'VE NEVER ORGANISED A CEILIDH OR BARN DANCE BEFORE, OR WOULD LIKE YOUR NEXT ONE TO BE EVEN MORE SUCCESFUL - DO HAVE A LOOK AT OUR CEILIDH FAQ PAGE HERE
Although we play plenty of twmpath tunes from Wales we also draw on the vast repertoire of traditional ceilidh dance music of the British Isles - though we are not deaf to a good melody and are prepared to make exceptions from further afield (love those American hoedown tunes)!
And of course not forgetting both traditional and contemporary songs from Pete. Sometimes instead of a country dance, twmpath or ceilidh we are booked purely for listening, and we have enough quieter and more unusual instrumentals and songs to provide an evening's entertainment in this way too, if that is something that interests you.
BASED NEAR CAERNARFON, GWYNEDD, NORTH WALES, WE'VE BEEN PLAYING CEILIDHS, BARN DANCES AND TWMPATHS REGULARLY TO APPRECIATIVE AUDIENCES THROUGHOUT WALES AND THE NORTH WEST FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS.
