Catch the Pigeon play for a ceilidh in Bury St Edmunds cathedral, June 2019

Welcome to the home of Catch the Pigeon ceilidh band, based around Ely, Cambridgeshire.

Please contact us if you have an event that you’d like us to play for. If you provide the people and the place, our musicians will play the tunes that make people want to dance, and our expert caller will teach the dances in a fun and easy to follow way.

You can find news and photos on our Facebook and Instagram pages, which you should be able to see even if you don’t have an account. You can also join our mailing list.

Great news! Ely Folk Festival have invited us to play for the Friday night ceilidh at the start of the festival on 7th July. You can find more details on their website here.

“…we couldn’t have done it without all of you, thank you so much – you raised the roof! You will be the talk of the village. Everyone (including the authentic Scottish crowd ) were so impressed with the band! We had a great eve”

“…a night to remember.  They loved it, asked for more and to quote one of them  ‘I felt like a child again, I loved it so much’. The perpetual grins on everyone’s face was proof it was a huge success.”
