Gigging down in Lincoln

First of all Happy New Year Everyone! So the Sleekit Beasties had quite an incredible 2015. It was filled with many gigs, lots of opportunities to meet with you all and of course lots of ceilidhing. On a side note, the Sleekit Beasties are fairly confident that 'ceilidhing' is not technically a word, but we're deciding to use it anyway! At the end of last year (somewhere in those middle days between [More]

Highland Gig + Skimming Stones

Recently did a lovely wee gig in Victoria Hall, Cromarty, in the Highlands. It was a beautiful venue, and a wonderful night - nice big space for Ceilidh Dancing too!

Just ignore the band members here [More]

Yes, we do play in Barns...

Now we've played some interesting venues in our time (everywhere from castles to houses) but this one was particularly interesting. This one was us playing in a gigantic barn, on a farm, about an hour and a half south-west of Dumfries. This barn was huge! We were able to drive our cars straight into it, past the bouncy castle, through the hay bales, beside the tables and to the stage. The stage itself [More]

Yorkshire Gig

So Sleekit Beasties had our furthest gig away so far this year, all the way in Yorkshire. The wedding was an amazing one - even if the few Scottish people there were the only ones who could actually understand us! We were even impressed with their ceilidh dancing - even if it took some (detailed) explaining on our part. The venue was part of a England National Trust site, which meant a strict [More]
