Award winning musicians Carlene Anglim (fiddle), Eugene Teevan (accordion), and Mick O'Connor (tenor banjo) are joined by Mick Bailey (guitar/vocals) to form the "core" of the band. Other instruments such as, flute, tin-whistle, or percussion may also be added. Speciality instruments such as Scottish or Irish bagpipes, bodhran (Irish drum) or traditional dancers are also available by arrangement (subject to availability & musical considerations).
The Wraggle Taggles' most common format for a ceilidh consists of four musicians plus a caller who will teach the dances from scratch - no experience needed! A ceilidh is something really different and ideal for a successful party, as it is a fun way to get families, friends and colleagues to mix and meet and because all age groups become involved.

"Such wonderful musicians" "Hello Mick and all of the band who attended our wedding at Moreteyne Manor on 09/09/2017! (Saturday Woburn Road, Marston Moreteyne, Bedford, Bedfordshire, MK43 0NQ) What an absolutely fantastic interlude of music you gave us - we all absolutely loved it! I'm just so sorry I didn't get the chance to come and thank you personally on the day, it was a bit of a whirlwind - but I have the most beautifully vivid memories of dancing with my uncle in the lounge. Such wonderful musicians and you played a perfect array of songs for us all to enjoy. Paul heard the sea shanty and was very excited, especially when I told him that it was for him. We hope everything went ok for ye too and that you enjoyed the venue. We have had lots of people asking about you so we will be sure to pass on your name and website to them. Thanks for adding a wonderful dose of celtic magic to our special day. Lots of best wishes" Karen and Paul Savage 28th Sept 2017
