The cost above assumes in Edinburgh, not beyond midnight, not beyond 4 hours.
The ceilidh bands are willing to play beyond midnight and beyond 4 hours, but charge £50 per half-hour extra.
Outside Edinburgh (i.e. the bypass) the ceilidh bands charge £50 per half-hour travel up to 2 hours.
More than 2 hours, the ceilidh bands expect dinner, bed and breakfast in addition.

The ceilidh bands are willing to travel ABROAD on condition that ALL expenses are paid i.e. travel, accommodation and food.
The ceilidh bands won't ask to be paid in addition. i.e. if you don't work us too hard, we'll regard it as a free holiday!
We have a campervan which holds up to 4 musicians so if your event is in western Europe we can come in the van which may be cheaper than flying us there.

If you REALLY can't afford a band, I'll come with a small PA (Public Address system) and an iPod. It's not as good as a live band obviously, but it IS better than a disco.
