“It was great to have you and definitely will want to have you again in future!

We really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and guidance through each dance. Everyone had fun and it was a great and sweaty evening – so much better to have a live band than listening to recordings!”

“Strip the Willow has never been done by so many people in one line!!! Not only did Stroma keep everyone on their feet the entire night, but their use of modern sounds with the traditional instruments made our ceilidh very unique. Their technical abilities are far beyond their years and their mastery of the repertoire is second to none. I would strongly recommend anyone thinking of having a ceilidh to book Stroma! A night to remember for sure!”

“Stroma were a fabulous band who have been a pleasure to work with. We needed a Ceilidh band to perform at our work event and we couldn’t be happier with the performance given. Stroma band members are all a pleasure and we had no issues at all. They had their own equipment organised and everything ran smoothly. Everyone who came had an excellent time because of the fantastic atmosphere created by the whole band. Thank you and we hope to work together again!”

“Stroma played at one of our Freshers’ events in September, and they were absolutely wonderful. The music was phenomenal and the entire crowd were engaged throughout. Equally, their professionalism and efficiency were second to none. They made managing a stressful event, considerably more enjoyable. On behalf of Trinity Laban Students’ Union thank you so so so much for a brilliant night… I’ve just about recovered from my ceilidh burns and aching feet! I will absolutely be encouraging my successors to book you for a similar event, and hope to work with you all again soon.”

“It is impossible to experience Stroma play and not enjoy every second. This young, talented group combine incredible musical skill with intricate knowledge and understanding of the ceilidh and folk music craft to consistently produce high quality, joyful and exciting performances. I defy you not to dance at one of their gigs”

– Guildhall Students’ Union, 2019

“Stroma were a wonderful part of my 30th birthday party! People left vowing to dance ceilidh for the whole year and the whole room was dancing. They made us look as if we were the same ability and everyone in the room was smiling. They were so kind and considerate through the whole process. Can’t wait to ceilidh with them again.”
