With well over 1000 gigs under their collective belts, Silver Thistle's players are masters of the upbeat ceilidh party. Katherine, Alexander and Phil all have a wealth of experience performing traditional and classical music across Europe at top festivals and major concert venues from The Barbican to Disneyland Paris, from Sheffield Cathedral to Sidmouth Folk Festival.
Katherine, Alexander and Phil have all served as band leader in other ceilidh bands and are all experienced dance callers, accredited teachers/ workshop leaders and recognised as some of the finest traditional musicians on the circuit.

Our percussionists are vastly experienced, playing for ceilidhs, classical concerts and are often found on stage at the UK's top folk festivals.

They've individually toured the UK, France, Belgium, Austria, Italy and more, had many radio appearances and have been on BBC TV.
