With days of playing for ceilidh dances in village halls around the North of Scotland a thing of the past, Julia Gordon (accordion), Brian Yates (small pipes) and Alan Heap (guitar) - the Damfankle Ceilidh Band - still get together each summer to play for tour groups on board the Lord Of The Glens, the magnificent cruise ship that transits the water of the Caledonian Canal from Inverness to Fort William and out around the sheltered waters of Scotland's hauntingly beautiful West Coast.





    This page is just a place to hold some of the band's memories, pre-Covid 19...
