Rehearsing Scottish Ceilidh music for Eigg the Musical

Accompanying a Ceilidh dance is so much fun! Here's a couple 360° videos of the cast of Eigg the Musical working through some ceilidh dance steps with our local Scottish dance experts. The tunesets are pretty traditioanal, we start with "Miss McLeods Reel", then transition to "Willajford" and briefly hit "The High Road to Linton. What a great tuneset!

Next, the troupe wanders into some waltz moves and the band joins in with "When Irish Eye Are Smiling". What a memorable moment! Man oh man, that was a fun night!
