Just some of the lovely comments we've received

Hi Glen

Just to say a massive thank you for leading an excellent ceilidh on Saturday.  It was just the right mix to get everyone up and dancing and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves - my feet were a bit sore the next day!

Please pass on our thanks to the whole band.  I have made another payment by BACS to show our appreciation.

Thanks again,  Margaret & Stuart F (Apr 24)

Dear Glen,

Thank you so much again for coming for our Burns Night Celebration. It really was a great event and one we’ll certainly be rolling out for future years!

Best Wishes,

Hi Glen,

Thank you so much to you and the band for a wonderful evening on Saturday. It was just as I had hoped for. Everyone enjoyed themselves.


Jo M (Jan 24)


Hi Glen,

Just to say a massive thank you to you and Knitters Jig , you were awesome.  Everyone loved the music and you made it great fun and got everyone up and dancing.  You made Dads night very special indeed he loved your music and the whole atmosphere you created, it might not have been the fastest paced Ceilidh you’ve ever done but it was spot on for us!!  Thank you once more and all the very to you all for Christmas and the new year.

Kind Regards  Kevin B (Dec 23)

Hi Glen,
Just a quick note to s
ay a MASSIVE thank you to you and the band for a fantastic ceilidh at our wedding on Saturday!   Everyone had an absolutely fantastic time and Will and I were so chuffed that so many people were up and dancing - it made it very special for us!
Thank you again,  Lauren and Will (Sep 23)

Hi Glen
Just wanted to say thank you again to you and the band for the excellent Ceilidh on Saturday. We had a great time and lots of guests have fed back how much they enjoyed it. Ruby Bridge also appreciated how you’d warmed up the crowd for them as everyone kept dancing most of the night. Thanks also for being flexible with the timings and I hope the lack of food wasn’t too much of a problem. There was meant to be a pizza van, but unfortunately they didn’t turn up. I hope you at least managed to get some cake and a drink.  If you’d like us to leave a review anywhere we’d be happy to.
Best regards Charlotte and Jack (Aug 23)

Hi Glen and team,
Thank you so much for a brilliant evening which was enjoyed by everyone, the highlight of a great evening.  You certainly succeeded in getting everyone on their feet.  Hope you had a good journey back.
With Best Wishes, John G and family (Aug 23).

Good morning, Glen,
Hope you got home safely and quickly last night.  I just wanted to send you a message to say thanks very much for an excellent night.  We all thought that you and the rest of the band did an excellent job.   A great time was had by all.
Thanks again
Best wishes

Best wishes
Lorraine M (Jun 23)

Dear Band
I just wanted to say thank you for your great work on Saturday night! Many of my friends had never been to a Ceilidh before and there were only one or two who didn’t give it a go on the night, which is a great compliment to your playing and calling- we had such a great time and so much laughter!
Thanks again for making my 60th bash such a success.
Warm wishes  Carrie W (Apr 23)


Hi Glen,
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for your flexibility and enthusiasm yesterday at our wedding.  All the guests at the wedding loved it and your calling got everyone involved and having so much fun.  Your band were so talented but kept everything light and relaxed.   hope you managed to enjoy plenty of the food and there were some drinks ready for you too.   Please let me know where is best to leave a review.  I would love to spread the word about how great a ceilidh band you are.  Equally, if I get any good photos/videos of you from the photographer/videographer, I'd be happy to pass them on.
Thanks again and all the best,
Andy C (Apr 23)

Hi Glen
Just to say thank you for an excellent set at the party!   Everyone loved it – you guys were awesome 😉
Ruth R (Feb 23)

Thank you so much for a great night: we had a blast.   And so sorry Dale for not getting to the bar to get your cider, I got sidetracked!   It really was one the best party’s I’ve had.  
All the best  Sue K (Jan 23)


Dear Glen, Alice and Dale (AKA Knitter’s Jig)
Just wanted to say a massive Thank You for the excellent music & entertainment you provided for our wedding.  From start to finish the ceilidh was fantastic, with the right level of explanation and guidance so that everyone of all ages could have a great time.   We received so much positive feedback from our guests who are still enjoying the memories and laughs several weeks later.   Not only were you excellent on the day, you were also great in the lead up.  Your clear and reassuring communication meant the ceilidh was one thing we didn’t need to worry about.  I have absolutely  no reservations about wholeheartedly recommending you to anyone else looking for a top-rate ceilidh band to dance the night away.
Best wishes Hayley and Cameron T (Sep 22)

Hi Glen,
Just wanted to say thank you to you and to the rest of Knitters Jig for playing at Maddie and Jakes wedding on the 19th.
While we might have been enthusiastic rather than talented dancers,  you were brilliant and patient with us,  meaning the evening was a great success and a great time was had by all.  It also transpired that Alice has some kind of connection with my uncle from Wigston (bit of a surprise there).
Many thanks
Regards  David  &  Sylvia T (Aug 22)

Dear Glen and the band
Thank you for creating the best party for our wedding!   The music was gorgeous and everyone had so much fun.  We are so grateful to all of you for the time, skill and sheer joy you brought to our day.

We wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the whole band for the wonderful Ceilidh at our wedding on April 9th!   Everyone had a fantastic time, you got everybody dancing and it really broke the ice!  Have attached some photos and videos for you which you are free to use if you would like :)

Just a note to say thanks so much for last night.  We had such a good time.  Everyone I spoke to really enjoyed themselves.  It was a terrific evening.
Can you pass on my best wishes and thanks to Nick and Alice.  
Probably will be recommending you wherever we go!  
Thanks again , Tim P ( Mar 22 )

Thank you so much for the entertainment last night. We had a fantastic time (and all slept well as a result!!). You were absolutely brilliant and handled us very well, even when we ran out of women!
Many thanks again, Kathryn O (Nov 21 )

Thank you so much for a fantastic evening!  Our friends and family had a wonderful time, you did such a great job getting everyone dancing!

It was loads of fun and we're much enjoying watching the videos from the evening!

Thank you for a wonderful evening. My feet still hurt. All the best

Cathy and Gary C (Sep 21)

Hi Glen & Knitters Jig…..

A friend recently asked for Knitters Jig details as they are interested to get you along for their wedding after having a ball when you played at ours….

You really made the day- everyone always talks about how great the ceilidh was so a huge heart felt and belated Thank you to you all! I hope you can extend my thanks to the band.

We hope you’ve been able to get back to some weddings this summer after such a strange time.

Many thanks again,  Katie and Jack T (Sep 21)

Hi Glen,
Just wanted to pass on everyone’s thanks for last Saturday. I have had positive comments every day this week as I have seen my various friends. They all enjoyed the music, even those who didn’t dance (not many!) said what a great atmosphere you generated and that the music was great to listen to. Those that had never been to a ceilidh before have asked to be invited next time!!
Thanks again  Clair C (Mar 20)

Dear Glen and co,
Thank you so much for playing so fabulously at Catherine and Tom’s wedding .  Everyone loved the ceilidh.
Once again ,many thanks.
Best wishes,  Mary and Donald M (Jan 20)

Hi Glen,
I just wanted to thank you all  for a lovely evening. The clientele was mostly older and potentially harder to get dancing, but you had a lovely manner, explained everything well and with humour and we all enjoyed your excellent music.
Best wishes
Wendy M (Dec 19)

Thank you all so much for last night. I and my guests thoroughly enjoyed the band.   I’ve had so many messages today about the band and the atmosphere. Best wishes to you all and a huge thank you xx
Anne-michele C (Oct 19)

Hello Glen,
Just wanted to say thank you very much for playing at my wife Helen's birthday party, we all enjoyed it very much. Helen has been inundated with messages from her guests expressing how much fun and enjoyment the evening was without doubt you are masters of your craft and bring a lot of enjoyment to everyone you play to.
Once again thank you.
Kind regards  Paul A  (Aug 19)

Hi Glen (and the rest of the band!),
I just thought I'd send you a quick email to say thank you for a great Ceilidh on Saturday night and for accommodating the delay in the timings. We had a lot of comments from people saying how good the band was and how much they enjoyed it.
Thanks again and we'll be sure to recommend you to anyone needing a Ceilidh band in the area in the future.
Louise and Chris B (Aug 19)

Dear Glen
Just a quick note to thank you and the band for a wonderful evening.  It made a wet night brilliant. Even if some guests didn't dance they enjoyed watching.
With best wishes
Debra, Paul, Andrew and Sarah. (Jul 19)

Just to thank you for Saturday night.The ceilidh was brilliant, so many people have emailed to say how much they enjoyed it, one of my friends
called it inclusive dancing - it is and was perfect for our evening.
Many thanks once again and best wishes,
Sarah B (June 19)

Good evening Glen,
We just wanted to take a quick moment, now that the madness of last week has subsided, to say a huge Thank You to you and the band for what was a wonderful evening last Thursday. We could not have expected it to go any better than it did, and we were all so impressed with the band and with the way in which you led the Ceilidh which saw pretty much everyone on the dance floor at some point! We were so thrilled and will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a Ceilidh in the future!   Once we have some professional photos through from the day we will send any that feature the band, and please let us know if there is anywhere you would like for us to leave a glowing review!
Natasha and Anthony H. (Apr 19)
Knitter’s Jig
Thank you so much for playing so brilliantly at our wedding recently.  We thought you were just perfect – lots of energy, talented playing and well-judged calling!  You must have got it right because we were exhausted by the end – we couldn’t resist dancing!
Thank you, love Ali and Chris BB xxx  (Mar 19)

Hi Glen,
Many thanks again for the fabulous music last night.
John S (Feb 19)

Morning Glen
Just wanted to send a quick email to say thanks again, on behalf of the mess, for the great performance.

To Knitter’s Jig
Guys you were brilliant! Thanks so much, we had the best day ever,
Chris & Esme  (Dec 18)

Hi Glen,
Please pass on thanks from Jen and myself to Alice and Nick for Saturday.  Jen and I had a great time, and everyone I spoke to had nothing but praise for the ceilidh and the band.  I really wanted this to be a birthday that Jen would look back on fondly, and you certainly helped to make that happen. Thank you.
If there's anywhere that I can leave a review, let me know.
Russ P (Oct 18)

Many thanks for such a wonderful evening on 15th September. Many people told me it was a wonderful evening made even more special by your band.  You have to be the best ceilidh band I have come across and I am so glad we found you!
Many thanks Jane W (Sep 18)

Hi Glen
Thank you for playing on Thursday. You were all fantastic and everyone really enjoyed it.
Jen C (Aug 18)

Good afternoon all,
Although a thank you card will be sent out in due course, we just wanted to say now a huge thank you to you all, for giving us quite simply the most wonderful evening reception!!  It will be remembered forever, and although I couldn't join in as much as I would have liked due to dress technical difficulties, it was so much fun and I'll certainly go to more Ceilidhs in future!  All of our guests (even those that didn't dance) have said how much they loved the evening, and there were a few who had some difficulties navigating the stairs the following morning...
So once again, thank you for such an enjoyable evening, we would recommend you to anyone 😊
With our love, the new Mr and Mrs Siggins xxx  (Aug 18)

Hi Glen,
A huge thank you for the fantastic ceilidh on Saturday evening! Almost no one at the wedding had ever done a ceilidh before, but they all really enjoyed it. In fact, one of my friends got engaged on Thursday and has already planned a ceilidh for his own wedding!  Apologies that we didn’t get a chance to thank you at the wedding, but your band was everything that we hoped for and more!
All the best with everything,  
Becky and Knud (Jly 18)

Thank you so much for last night - you were everything we wanted in a band and especially thank you for persevering with the heat!
Best wishes Avalon S (Jly 18)

Just wanted to pass on our thanks for your tremendous playing at our wedding on Saturday!  We really enjoyed it and we have received lots of compliments on the quality
Thanks  Ryan M (June 18)

Dear every member of the band,
Thank you so much for a wonderful performance! We all really enjoyed having you and you were brilliant, the caller was excellent and the music  was excellent and we all had such fun, it is difficult to recall the hi lights there were so many! The longest strip the willow we have ever been in , the dashing flying scotch man , etc.  It was so kind of you to play the disco music for so long as well as letting Samuel perform his song , it made a wonderful conclusion to the day!  Thank you so much , please come again ! We are all thinking of a another occasion we can ask you to come too!
Thank you all so much for such a wonderful evening!
Susan and Edward L (June 18)

Hi Glen,
We've just about recovered from the wedding now and just wanted to thank you and the rest of the band for playing. We've had so many people tell us how much they enjoyed the ceilidh dancing, and the photos and videos that we've seen so far are great!
Best wishes,
Sarah S (June 18)

Dear Knitter's Jig
Thank you so much for coming to play at our wedding.  Lots of people said it was the best ceilidh band they'd heard and the people who had never ceilidh'd before loved it.  You were really the talk of the night and can't wait to get the video back to see it in action again. There are some cracking pictures of people mid ceilidh!
Thanks again Ben and Emma W x (June 18)

A big thanks for Saturday. It all went brilliantly and you and the band were excellent. Everyone had a great time and you have a whole host of converts to the pleasures of a ceilidh.
Yours Neil H (June 18)

Hi Glen and Co.
Just a quick note to sat a BIG Thank you to the three of you for a fantastic night last Saturday.
Had a great weekend celebrating, but made it special seeing young and old dance together. Hope we didn't mess too many dance up !
Thanks again  regards  
x Jude B (May 18)

Hi Glen
Hope you all got home ok on Saturday night. Eric and I want to thank you all for a such a great evening. Wow what fun we all had. The music was impressive and the calling just excellent. Many people who were there have commented to us specifically on what a great job you all did. Even little Edith (the 2 year old) said to me yesterday - 'I skipping' when I asked if she liked the party and the dancing.
Many many thanks - we will certainly recommend you to others.  Jill C (Mar 18)

Hi Glen, Thank you for a fabulous evening you did a great job.
Sue C (Feb 18)

Hi Glen, I hope you are well. Thank you so much for last Saturday. Everyone loved the Ceilidh. They all said it was a really great alternative and the Scottish theme made it one of the best Ladies evenings ever! So, sorry once again that things were running late. I hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did.
Thanks again.
Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year X Jessica  J (Dec 17)

Hi Glen
Just a quick email to say thank you very much to you and your band for
running the Ceilidh for us at our party last weekend. We really enjoyed
it and we had lots of very good feedback.
Best wishes Neil and Kathryn T (Nov 18)

Hi Glen
Thank you for last night's entertainment, everyone enjoyed themselves.
Mandy C (Nov 17)

To Knitter’s Jig
Thank you for the wonderful evening to help us celebrate our Silver Anniversary. We would unreservedly recommend the band to anyone. You were fabulous.
Jenny and Tom T (Oct 17)

Hi Squeezebox and Knitters Jig
I don't usually write shared thank you notes but this one is different, because we all want to thank both bands for making my daughter's wedding so successful.  You shared all the credits, 'Epic' and 'Awesome' were among the many, many happy comments received since the event.  You made a impressive contribution to the day and left everyone satisfied that there was something that they could join in during the evening.
We'd be happy to give very positive feedback to anyone thinking about booking either or both of you.  We've enjoyed your playing before and hope we have some more opportunities to meet again.
With thanks and very best wishes.  John S (Sep 17)

Hi Glen,
Thanks so much for Saturday night. You guys were excellent!
Felicity S (Sep 17)

Hi Glen (& the rest of Knitter's Jig)
Thanks for playing at Derek's retirement party, I think everyone had fun & I have never seen Derek on the dance floor for that long!! Just working my way through washing up all of the china!! Thanks again
Kind regards  Sue D (July 17)

Dear Glen,
I just wanted to let you know that everyone is still talking about the party, particularly the music and the great calling.  Some of my colleagues have said it is the best 'night out' we have ever had.  So once again many thanks for a great evening.  I am going to have to think of another excuse for a Ceilidh
Kind regards Marie M  (June 17)

Hi Glen,
On behalf of Anna and I, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your efforts at my 40th birthday.  We had a fantastic night as did everyone who attended.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Knitters Jig to anyone considering having a Ceilidh or Barn Dance. Please extend my thanks to the rest of the bands members.
I hope our paths may cross again in the future.
Thanks once again.  Danny S  (May 17)

Hi Glen,
What an amazing evening. Many thanks to you and the rest of Knitter's Jig for making it such a wonderful occasion. So many positive comments and our many American guests learnt what a ceilidh is! From old to young everyone enjoyed the music and dancing.
Bev B. (Apr 17)

Hi Glen,
I just wanted to say a really big thank you for last Saturday’s brilliant ceilidh!  We all had a fab evening and everybody commented on how amazing the band were.  Some of my colleagues enjoyed it so much they have already trawled the internet and found another ceilidh to attend in a couple of weeks’ time!
Please pass my thanks to Nick and Alice as well.
Thanks again,  Debbie C  (Mar 17)

Hello Glen
Just a quick note to say thanks again for last night, you guys were amazing - can’t believe you can get such a big band sound out of three musicians, and often two when you’re on the floor getting everyone organised.  As you could see, everyone was enthusiastic and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.  Most importantly, it raised good money towards the school in Zambia and will make a huge difference to the children there.
Hope you all got home safely, many thanks again,  Anne-Marie C  (Feb 17)

Hi Glen,
Apologies this email has been sat in my outbox since last week!  It was lovely to see you all again on Saturday night. It was great to see so many people on the dance floor, everyone was loving the dancing.  Hopefully we will see you again in the future.
Warmest wishes  Gemma B (Jan 17)

Hi Glen
Thought I would write to say how much we and our guests enjoyed the Ceilidh at my 50th Birthday Party last Saturday night.  For the vast percentage of guests it was their first experience of a Ceilidh, and they said it was a great event, much better than a standard disco, even the people who did not get actively involved said how much they had enjoyed watching the “dancers”
Thanks again  Neil and Christine (Jan 17)

Dear Glen
Just want to thank you and all the band for giving us such a good evening last night. .Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and no-one keeled over though I suspect a few might not be able to walk today!  Don't know why I was worried that they may not dance, may have to get a bigger hall next time…
Thanks again,  Sharon and Kathy (Nov 16)

Hi Glen,
Just to say a big thank you for playing at our wedding on the 23rd July.  Our guests really enjoyed it, you really were an exceptional band.  It was great to see so many people dancing and we feel it finished off our day.  We really loved the well known songs at the end too!!
Many thanks again,  Lucy and Jon (Aug 16)

Hi Glen,
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you, Alice and Nick.  We had never done ceilidh dancing before but couldn't recommend it highly enough especially as the entertainment at weddings.  It got everybody from my 3 year old nephew to his 60 year old grandparents up dancing and enjoying themselves.  It really encouraged everyone to mingle as well.  So many of our guests told us, both on the day and after, how much fun they found the ceilidh dancing to be.  Your quick and detailed responses to emails building up to the big day were really helpful and put us at our ease so we felt like the entertainment was not something we had to worry about.  Nothing was too much trouble for you.  You have now opened up a new world to us and we are going to another ceilidh dance at the end of September.
Thanks so much.  Sophie and StuartW  (Jly 16)

Knitter’s Jig
Thank you very much for last night, I trust you got home safely.  We all had a thoroughly good time and when we got home I asked Tyler if she had enjoyed herself and she replied, "of course, I have never been happier!"
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.  Regards Carol B  (Jun 16)

Hi Glen,
Thank you very much for a brilliant birthday ceilidh. I have had nothing but positive feedback and want to thank Knitters Jig for that. I was very pleased to have chosen the 4 person band as the music really did have extra depth.  
Many thanks again,  Iain Mac  (May 16)

Hi Glen,
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the rest of Knitter's Jig for the great ceilidh that you played on 2nd April. Harriet and I had a lovely birthday and our friends and family really enjoyed themselves.
All the best,  Amy C  (Apr 16)

Hi just wanted to let you know we were very pleased with the performance from the band on the night it certainly got everyone up dancing, everyone had a lovely time especially the children who never left the floor.
Many thanks Trish T  (March 16)

Hi Glen,
Just catching up from last weekends wedding followed by a frantic week at opposite ends of the country and finally have the opportunity to reflect on the wedding and party that followed.  Knitters Jig proved to be the perfect entertainers for our little group with something that really appealed to all ages. My teenaged neices report that they had a fantastic time and all the feedback we have received say that it was the best wedding they have ever attended.  That included my 90 year old mother and doesn't say much about my own wedding!  Auld Lang Syne at the end of the evening was a real tear jerker, we really appreciated your kindness in staying on to round off our day so successfully.
With very best wishes to you all John S  (Mar 16)

Dear Glen
We had a fabulous evening at our wedding party last Saturday. Knitters Jig did  us proud. You were very professional. The music was lively and really skilfully played and the caller (you?) so persuasive that you managed to get everybody dancing which was what we had hoped for. We have had some great feedback from our guests who loved the dancing and the atmosphere and were impressed with the band.
Thanks again
Best Wishes Judith G  (Mar 16)

Hello Glen,
Sorry it's taken me a few days to sit down and send you this emails, but I just a wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you, Alice and Nick for being so brilliant at my birthday on Saturday night.   I 'danced' every dance and my legs were agony until Wednesday!  However, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and loved every minute of the ceilidh so thank you all for your brilliant playing, demonstrating and Alice's wonderful calling!  I want to do it all again next year, haha!  Many thanks Glen!
Best regards,  Ruth K (Feb 16)

Hello Glen,
We are almost back to normal after the wedding and would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of Dan & Catherine, to thank you all for making the evening a great success. Several guests have commented on how much they enjoyed the evening and from our point of view, it was delightful to see so many guests joining in throughout the evening.  Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to the other members of the band for a giving us such a great evening and helping to make this a memorable special day.
Kind regards,  Jack B (Feb 16)

Hi Glen
I just wanted to say a huge thanks for Saturday night - it was absolutely fantastic. So many people have said what a great time they had and we have some hilarious videos and photos of how not to do it!!!!  I really appreciate you fitting in with the timings as I know that there was some hanging around at the beginning.  
Let me know if I can leave a favourable review anywhere and I will do so.
All the best,  Helena M  (Jan 16)

Hi Glen
Can you pass our thanks on to your group for another special event on New Years Eve. Everyone really had an enjoyable night and it went so  quickly. We will be in touch if we require you to come again. (Subsequently booked again for next year)
Thanks once again  Carol C  (Jan 16)

Knitter’s Jig
Thank you for last night. Everyone had a great time.
Paul H (Nov 15)

Hi Glen,
THANK YOU!!!!   It is always good when events exceed expectations, and last night was one of those nights.  As you were probably aware, I was unsure as to how my choice of entertainment would be received.  As we all saw, my worries were totally unfounded.  What was completely unexpected, was the amount of people you guys got up dancing, and also that had they been allowed, they would have carried on!  That is unheard of and unique at this "type" of event.  I am sure you have gained a lot of admirers, and would not be surprised to see you there again in the future.  Again many thanks for last night (and especially to Alice who went down a storm!)
Kind regards  Bernard T (Nov 15)

Sorry for not giving you any feedback just been a busy period.  I'd like to thanks you guys for a cracking night and everyone was very complimentary of your performance.  I hope you guys enjoyed the evening as well, may see you at my 70th.
Regards   Pete B (Nov 15)

Hi Glen
Brian and I just wanted to say a big ‘Thank you’ to you and your fellow band members for a fabulous evening’s entertainment for our wedding.  Lots of people have said how much they enjoyed the evening, and how refreshing it was to have something different.  We have some great videos to remind us of the enthusiasm with which our guests took part, and there were certainly lots of laughs to accompany the dancing!  It really was a very special day for us, and we were delighted with how everything went.  Your cheery professionalism and brilliant sound was much appreciated by all.  Many thanks once again.
Kind regards,  Jan and Brian S (Oct 15)

Dear Glen
We wanted to say a very heartfelt thank you to you, Alice, Dale and Nick for giving us the most spectacular ceilidh at our silver wedding party last Saturday.  We couldn’t believe it when, despite having all just eaten fish and chips, practically all our guests stood up for the first dance -  and most of them kept dancing all night!  We’ve never thrown a party so big (at our wedding we had 60 for a meal!) and you made it very memorable for us and for everyone else.  You have such an infectious sound and style, people just couldn’t help but dance -  even the teenagers!
We are still grinning from ear to ear at the memories -  so thank you once again.
Warm regards. Rick and Pam L (Sep 15)

Hi Glen,
Thank you very much for Saturday, everyone including ourselves loved it and had a great time dancing, it made our day even more special to have such a great band.  One of my friends who was there has asked for your contact details, on the 3rd October a charity ball has been organised at Whittlebury Hall Hotel in Northampton and we wondered if you would have availability to play?
Kind regards Elizabeth G. (Sep 15)

I just wanted to say thank you so much to you all for coming and playing at my 40th birthday on Sunday in Coventry.
The feedback we have had is fantastic. Such a fun evening and so many people have said they’d forgotten how much they enjoyed doing the dances you did with us all.  Thanks to you all for such a brilliant evening of entertainment, dancing and laughter!
With very best wishes from Sarah and Steve (Aug 15)

Hi Glen,
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for Saturday.  You guys did an amazing job. We loved the dancing and there were plenty of people on that dance floor who I would never have expected to get up.
Thanks for adding to the atmosphere and helping to make our day special.
Regards Jo and Mark (Aug 15)

Hello  there,
Well, myself and Andy just wanted to say a massive thank you to the whole band for playing at our wedding this weekend! Your were absolutely fantastic and everyone has told us how much they enjoyed dancing along with you. Even the people with three left feet managed to muddle through a dance or two! You were very professional and extremely talented at what you do! We had an absolute blast!
Thanks again!   Emma and Andy xxxxx  (Jly 2015)

Dear Knitters Jig,
Thank you so very much for last night, you were all amazing and we had an absolutely fantastic time. Our guests also had a brilliant evening some saying it was the best night out they had had for many years and even our shy teenage guests loved the dancing. Thank you for being so patient with us and for teaching us new dances that we very much hope we will be doing again soon, our son even said we should do it all again next weekend!
Kindest Regards Angela and Nathan T (Jun 15)

Hello Glen.
I'm sorry I didn't see you before you left last night.  I wanted to say how pleased we were with the dance.  I've been to quite a few barn and square dances before, but I can genuinely say that this was by far the best we've been to.  The way you led the evening was perfect and the music three musicians made was fantastic.  I think that the dance floor was packed all evening was testimony to that.  Please pass on our thanks to the other two members of the group.  You all did a superb job and we are very grateful.  It was the perfect evening and was just what Hannah and Luke wanted and I know they'd want to express their gratitude too.  Hopefully, we might get the opportunity to arrange another barn dance in the future and if we do, then we'd certainly want Knitters Jig!   Peter W (May 15)

Hi Glen, Alice and Nick,
Just a quick note to say a very big thank you for a wonderful night on the 11th April.  Everyone said how much they enjoyed your music and how patient Alice was with all the dancers!  There were some people at the party who had never been to a barn dance before but are now looking forward to their next one.
Thank you all once again,  Jill C (Apr 15)

Hi Glen
Hope you are well. Apologises that it has taken me all week to send you this email (I am a teacher and I have had Parents' Evening and an Ofsted inspection this week!!!), but I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you, Alice and Nick for such a fantastic barn dance last weekend for my Mum's 60th birthday! We all thought you were such a fantastic band (we would highly recommend you!), and you all made the evening such a wonderful and memorable occasion, so thank you once again.. Hayley C (Apr 15)

Dear Knitter’s Jig
I would just like to say thank you for making our special day go with a swing.  We all thoroughly enjoyed the dancing and I think we have introduced the delights of the Ceilidh Band to a younger generation. Thank you once again from my husband and I.  Bev and Ray H (March 15)

Dear Knitter's
Diane and I want to thank you all again for making last Saturday such a wonderful evening.  You were very patient with us considering we were such a dim bunch of cowboys and girls.  It was a night we'll remember for a long time, our grandchildren have been converted from disco to your wonderful brand of music and dance.
Thanks again   Yours sincerely Diane and Steve U (Feb 15)

Hi Glen
Thanks once again for a fabulous performance on Friday Night. We've had so many positive comments that we want to do it again on Saturday 23rd Jan 2016 if you are free.  
Best regards  Mark c. (Jan 15)

Hi Glen
Just a quick email to say a massive thanks for Saturday night.  A great time was had by all and many people commented on you guys :-). Thanks so much for all you did and rest assured that we will recommend you to anyone who asks!!
Thanks again.  Andy B (Nov 14)

Hi Glen,
Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you and the rest of the band for your attendance on Sunday – you all played amazingly, the caller did a fantastic job and everyone commented on how well you played so thank you.
We are planning to host more events in the future so we will be back in touch in the future.
Best Wishes,  Kate  Chapterhouse Theatre Company (Nov 14)

Dear Glen and the band,
Just a short note to say how much everyone enjoyed the band last night. We've had lots of great comments this morning - it was a huge success. We do appreciate you playing until 11.30 and hope that you weren't too late home.
We probably weren't the most obedient of audiences but you managed to get people up and dancing who haven't done so for years!
Many, many, thanks,   Sheila S (Sep 14)

Hi Glen,
Just wanted to say thank you again for last nights Ceilidh. Everyone has said how great they thought the band were and the caller was brilliant! It was such good fun. I wanted to leave you a review that you could put on your website? So here goes. Knitters Jig are a brilliant Ceilidh band! Everyone who came to our event loved the night and kept saying how great the band were and how patient and fun the caller was (most of us were complete beginners). It was one of the best nights any of us have had in a long time so to anyone who is thinking of holding a Ceilidh, I would highly recommend that you hire Knitters Jig. We definitely would again.
Kind Regards,  Louise  Corby T (July 14)

Hi Glen,
Just a quick note to say thanks again for your playing on Saturday night. We had a great time and everyone who came along has been very vocal in saying what a fantastic time they had dancing - the response to the night has been overwhelmingly positive, so thanks for helping to make our evening so much fun.
Cheers,  Graham M (July 14)

Dear Glen
You all gave us an amazing and hugely fun and enjoyable evening. Your playing was superb and your teaching, calling and encouragement were fabulous.  I think everyone, young and old alike, had a great time. I haven't had such a night in a long time and next time I have a party I know exactly who I shall be getting in touch with.
All best wishes  Jane F (Nov 13)

Hi Glen and Knitters Jig, we are just back from honeymoon and we both wanted to say thank you! You guys were great, getting everyone involved, paying great music and basically getting us to Ceilidh. Our lasting memory of our big day will be everyone (well nearly everyone :)) successfully stripping the willow, you helped us have great fun.
Mr and Mrs P  (Feb 14)

Dear all
Thank you so much for helping to make my 60th birthday party on the 5th April such a good one. The music was wonderful, I am sorry you had to work so hard at times to get some on their feet.  I shall certainly be giving out your name if any one wants a Ceilidh, actually I felt sure I had seen you some where before perhaps at a folk festival some where. Once again thank you so much.
Best wishes  Angela and David W (Apr 14)

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to the band for a fantastic night of music and dancing! All the guests who stayed to dance had a fantastic time and it was brilliant to see the delighted faces of those who had never barn danced : ) you are a wonderful group…………….
Many thanks, Mary and Marc

Hi Glen,
We just wanted to say thank you for your performance last night,the band was absolutely fantastic and everyone had a great time.
many thanks  Daniel and Rachel B (Oct 13)

Hello Glen,
We had a fabulous time last night, one which we shall always remember, enjoying time dancing with family and friends. It is your band which made the night so very special. Thank you so much for coming out in such horrible weather conditions. You were fantastic. Everyone I spoke to enjoyed the music. Even people who never dance joined in, and the teenagers who had never been to a ceilidh loved it. The dances you chose for such a mixed group and your instructions were perfect, and your skill on the instruments a joy to listen to.
Jo and John

Hi Guys,
Firstly, thank you all so much for a brilliant ceilidh and helping make our day so perfect!!!! Most of our friends had never taken part in a ceilidh before and all said it wouldn't be their last!!!!!! Due to the huge impracticalites of my dress I didn't manage many dances as I usually would, but I gave it my best shot!!!!!  Our photographer has uploaded the wedding photos onto……………………………

To Knitter’s Jig
I had such a good evening – I’m sorry I didn’t manage to thank each of you before you left – the music and dancing was brilliant. Well done the caller for keeping everyone swinging around. I absolutely loved it. Thanks for a great evening, and doing your stuff so professionally without any fuss. There were lots of people who said how good you were. I’ll grab the chance to pass bookings your way.
Thank you again. Regards, felicity

Hello everyone,
Just to say thank you once again for the beautiful music for Rebekah's wedding.  We were so pleased with the band and really enjoyed the music at the church and of course the dance which everyone agreed was brilliant! So much better than a "disco".
best wishes Chris A

Dear Glen
Now that we are returned from our honeymoon and are getting back to normality we just wanted to write to thank you and all the members of the Knitters Jig for delivering such a great musical support to our wedding Ceilidh, which was a highlight to our wedding celebrations. All of the family and friends we have spoken to have mentioned the Ceilidh as a being key to their enjoyment of the celebration on the day.  It was great to see young and old, kilted and otherwise thoroughly enjoying themselves on the evening.  Many thanks again to all of knitters jig.
With best wishes  Ian, Maria and Anna

Hi Glen
Hope you are well.  I just wanted to drop you a line to again say a really big thank you for playing at my 40th birthday party at Risley Hall the other weekend - apologies for the delay in dropping you a line but I have just returned from a lovely holiday in sunny Tenerife!   I have had some lovely feedback from the evening and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music and dancing at the Ceilidh.  Please pass on my thanks again to everyone it really was a fantastic evening.  Just one other thing, my sister in law (who was at my do with her husband to be) were so impressed they are really interested in booking you for their wedding next year………
Take care.  Michelle

Hi Glen & team;
Just to say a massive thanks for last Sunday. The whole evening was a great success – everybody seemed to enjoy themselves - & your enthusiasm was infectious.  We love having you around for these occasions.
Thanks again & best wishes to you all.  Keith M

Hi Glen
we had a great evening thank you, lots of people texting to say they had a really good time. we both had achy knees and feet the next day but it was worth it! Thanks to Alice for her patience and you all for your accomplished playing. we enjoyed all the music you played.
Many thanks  Linda and Celia

Hi Glen
Just wanted to say a huge Thank You for all your help, the band were fantastic and party was brilliant.  I am getting loads of feedback from friends and family saying how much they enjoyed it and everyone was complimentary about the band.  They were friendly, kept the party flowing and the music was amazing.  So thanks again, we are thinking up an excuse for another party already!  
Kind regards Dionne

We just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for playing at our wedding reception and giving us all such a brilliant time!!  The music was fantastic and we saw people on the dance floor who we never thought would dance, that includes Colin who had been adamant all the way along that he wouldn't be doing a first dance! But you got him dancing which is no mean feat!  We've had lots of comments from friends who said they loved the evening and really enjoyed themselves so thank you from them too!  We are now looking for any excuse to hold a party and book you again!! We'll be back.......!!
Thanks once again!  Best wishes,  Becky and Colin x

We would just like to say a big thank you to the band for Saturday night. You were EXCELLENT and really made the party go with a swing.  Everybody enjoyed the evening, and were so excited about the dancing.
Many, many thanks,  Hilary

It all went so well!!!  We couldn't have imagined anything like the turn out and enthusiasm of both the boys and girls and their parents.  Do thank Knitters Jig for me.  They had to work very hard in our very difficult space - the Sports Hall - where the acoustics are not the best …  but everyone loved it.  Thank you for your patience and support.  I am so pleased.  Again, do pass on our thanks to the band..
St Hugh’s School

Belated grateful thanks to you all for another great night last Saturday.  I had lots of appreciation afterwards from many happy punters!  We haven’t yet earmarked a date for next year’s repeat performance but will contact you after our next committee meeting.  
Kind regards to you all.  Jane T

Dear Glen,
Many thanks to you all for a great evening on Saturday.  We all enjoyed your selection of dances and Alice's easy and warm way of calling sorting everyone out! It was a lovely way to celebrate Elizabeth's 18th.
Many thanks  Ros and Nick

Dear Glen
Just getting around to all my thank yous - and I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your band - everyone LOVED the dancing , it was a huge hit; your caller was super ( and a mean fiddle player too) and I had a terrific time.  Big thanks and hope to dance with you again in the future.
Kind regards Judith

Thank you for the wonderful way you all contributed to Ben & Becky's wedding on Friday 2 August from playing in the church, playing on the way to the reception to the fantastic ceilidh in the evening.
Brian (Ben's dad)

Just a quick e-mail to say a huge thank you for Sat. Despite the hot weather I was glad to see full participation in a dry dance...I couldn't believe how quickly we got the last dance!
Best wishes and thanks again,
Alison and Steve

Hi Glen
Just to say thank you very much for helping to make Kate and Simon's Wedding Day a day to remember.  Your selection of music and dances was just right for the occasion and we have had many favourable comments from the guests.  The atmosphere the music created was just as Kate and Simon wished and they were pleased that so many people including the children participated in the dancing.  We all thought it was a lovely way to end such an important day.
We also really enjoyed the procession from the church led by your fiddle player.  Again their choice of music was perfect.  We have captured this on video, it is a bit bumpy but we have all enjoyed watching this and it will be a memory to treasure for Kate and Simon.  We are just so glad the weather was dry and that Kate was able to ride from the church on Molly (Kate’s Horse).  This had been her dream for many years.
Thank you again so much for your ideas and flexibility which enabled us all to have such a wonderful day.  If we ever need a barn dance group in the future we are sure to contact you and we will certainly recommend your band to anyone who is interested in holding a barn dance. We were extremely pleased with the service we received from Knitters Jig.
Many thanks,  Angela and Anthony

Dear Glen,
We just wanted to say a huge "thank you" to you all for playing at our wedding on Saturday.  We all had a fantastic time, even if we didn't always get the steps in the right order!!  It was a truly memorable day for everyone.
Many thanks again.  Helen  and Anthony

Hi Glen,
Thank you all so much for playing on  4th June at our party in the park!  Everyone had a fab time, and all loved the dancing. Hope it won't be too long before you are back in our village!
Regards Liz

Hi Glen
Just wanted to say thank you for attending our family fun day, you provided a professional friendly service & everyone enjoyed your music especially those who participated in the dancing. It was certainly one of the best highlights of the day.  Once again thank you for being part of our family day & helping to make it a great success.
Regards,  Claire

Dear Glen
I would like to thank you and the rest of the team for being such a significant factor in making my wedding day say utterly brilliant. I loved walking up the field to your music, it was just what I wanted and I don't think anything could have been more appropriate. The Caliegh in the evening provided some of the best memories from the day, if not the best memory; having asked a few individuals of they would like to dance, given that they seemed to be mesmerised by the the side of the dance floor only to be met with a look of "no fear" I returned a while later to see John, my uncle, a solicitor from Co Durham, Mark a surgeon from the village and Billy a scouse car salesman all holding hands skipping and clapping looking like they were having the time of their life. None of these people knew each other and none of them previously looked like they would even entertain the idea of getting involved. Secondly the last song turning into a "I do like to be beside the seaside" being song by all involved actually makes me want to cry its such a perfectly happy memory.  I look forward to having a party again, perhaps for no reason at all other than to get my friends together and have you guys play. You all really put so much effort into making my wedding go with a terrific swing and I am incredibly grateful for the fun, the forced mingling and the memories!
Send my best to everyone in Knitters Jig.  Emily and Scott

Dear Glen,
Just a quick note to thank you and the band ever so much for Saturday night, the band was great and everyone really enjoyed it. I hope everything was ok for you and we didn't make fools of ourselves too much with the dancing!
We know where to come if we do it again!
All the best,  Sarah and all at Derbyshire Veterinary Services .

Hi Glen,
we're just back from our honeymoon and I wanted to send a quick email to say thank you to Knitter's Jig for such a brilliant ceilidh at our wedding. Everyone had so much fun and they all remarked on how much they enjoyed it and how great the music was.
thank you again,  Anne

Hi Glen and band
Thank you so much for playing at Liz and James' wedding on Saturday.  The music was superb and the caller cleverly assessed the amount of instruction required. We had many compliments on how enjoyable the evening was, with the fine musicianship and dancing making a friendly informal celebration.  We have passed your details to several interested guests.
Thank you. Best wishes Jenny & Nick

Hello all!
I'm embarrassed to write to you so late but really wanted to thank you for such a fantastic performance.  Thank you for the special songs and wonderful playing, and well done for adapting the range of dances to work so well with so many children there.  I had a great night and all our guests had a brilliant time.  We were all in expert hands - you may have made some converts to dancing!  Thank you for making my birthday so memorable.
Tania S

Hi Glen
After a very hectic few days I finally have a day off work and can catch up with myself.  I wanted to say a huge 'thank you' for last Saturday. What a fantastic night.  Graham loved it and I'm so glad I got yourselves and didn't go down the disco route.  Everyone got up and had a go at the dancing and you were all brilliant.  I hope you managed to get some food in the break.  I've had so many comments this week about how much people enjoyed themselves and one person is considering doing something similar for a fundraiser she is trying to organise for next year.  It certainly worked out really well and I can now take a deep breath out - the last couple of days got very stressful but it was well worth it as Graham didn't have a clue until he got to the party.  Thank everyone from us both for having patience with those of us who hadn't done the dancing before and for the wonderful music you provided..
with warmest wishes  Penny and Graham

Hi Glen
I just wanted to say thanks to you and the rest of the band for helping to make the wedding such a great day for us.  It was great to see how many people wanted to get involved in the dancing – we both thought it was excellent.  
Kind Regards  Tim L

Hi Everyone
Hope you are all well, Just wanted to send you a BIG Thank you for the great evening you gave us at Great Creaton the other night EVERYONE enjoyed it, our visitors have gone back to their countries saying what a great night it was!:)
Kind regards  Diana J

Dear Knitters Jig,
Ali and would like to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding on 1st August.  We really enjoyed the music and dancing and have had so many compliments on the evening.  People we have NEVER seen on the dance floor were reluctant to come off!  It was a huge success and we would definitely recommend you!
Regards,  Sarah C

Hi Glen and Norma
I've been busy at work this week which has flown by, probably due in part to still being on a high from the party at the weekend.  I had to write to say that last Saturday Knitter's Jig were brilliant and, despite the odd fall and rallying the dancers, both guests and birthday girls had a wonderful time.  Many thanks to you and the other members of the band for an entertaining evening.  Should the opportunity arise I will definitely recommend you!
Best wishes  Renata

Hi Glen and Knitters Jig
Just wanted to drop you all a little email to say how much we enjoyed our wedding on Saturday 22nd December and part of that was due to the fantsatic ceilidh you did!  It was brilliant and got everyone talking and dancing and they have continued to talk about it since!  I can't wait to see our DVD of the night to see all the dancing and general merriment!!  You even got my stepbrother to dance and I have never known this to happen!
Thank you so much  Joanna and John

Just a quick line to say that the Knitters Jig band and caller on Saturday went down a treat. Everybody enjoyed themselves and most people had a go at some point during the evening. Thank you very much I’d definitely recommend you.  Regards, Matthew
