The Piper’s Cross Céií Band

The Piper's Cross Céilí Band perform traditional music, song and dance and the members hail from various areas of Co. Mayo. The céilí band thrives on local styles of traditional music based on the music that is associated with the strong set dancing tradition that is highly prominent in Co. Mayo At the All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil in 2023, the Piper’s Cross Céilí Band won the coveted All Ireland Senior Céilí Band competition in Mullingar, becoming the first ever band from Mayo to take home the title since the first ever Fleadh Cheoil in 1951. Since then, we as a céilí band have been very active in promoting our Mayo culture and performing at various events and festivals. We are also starting to record a CD in the near future - thus ensuring that our Mayo cultural heritage will be preserved forever more. The céilí band aims to promote and preserve the strong tradition of Irish music, song and dance in Co. Mayo and to bring these traditions to audiences both locally and nationally. We endeavour to explore and utilise repertoire from Co. Mayo in our selections. We regularly meet up together to rehearse and prepare for upcoming events and to share our strong interest in music together.
