Many of us make lists of the music we want to play at our wedding reception, but we may not realise the true storytelling power of wedding ceremony music. To most of us, hearing strains of some of these songs puts us immediately in mind of nuptials. Few would deny that music plays an important part in every wedding, whether it is religious or civil. No matter whether traditional or modern, beautifully chosen music adds to the atmosphere and character of every wedding ceremony.
The exact duration of time that musicians will perform at your wedding tends to vary slightly from band to band. In general, you can expect about two hours of live music split up into two or three sets of an hour or 40 minutes.
No matter what the exact name, historically and collectively speaking, a ceilidh, ceili or barn dance is a get-together of farm folk in the British Isles.
