About us

The Brim specialise in providing an upbeat Ceilidh (‘Ceilidh’ or ‘Barn Dance’) for weddings, birthdays, fund raisers and other events however big or small across Cornwall, Devon and the UK. See our ceilidh page for more info.

Consisting a mix of piano accordion (Alan Pengelly), guitar (Cas Davey), fiddle (Annie Bayliss), Bodhran (Keith Mountifield) and ‘caller’ (Julian Whiting), The Brim boasts a collective wealth of experience playing for some of Cornwall’s top ceilidh bands as well as other music ensembles across Cornwall.

The result is an exciting and energetic mix of both new and traditional ceilidh dances with a sound that will have you uncontrollably tapping your feet! The Brim have confirmed their reputation as one of the top ceilidh bands in the South West boasting a reputation for repeat appearances on the Main Stage at The Little Orchard Cider and Music Festival.

Line-up Options

Our core line up is piano accordion and guitar. Both instruments are professionally fitted with bass and midi technologies providing a large, full and high energy sound far greater than expected from just 2!

Line-up options include a fiddler as a 3rd musician which adds an additional melodic layer and we can also add a 4th musician adding percussion for the full Brim big band experience. Please discuss these option with us as whilst we can provide full and high energy sound with just 2, we can tailor to suit your budget or requirements.
