Followed by the Science-Ceilidh!


The Science-Ceilidh is an educational project that aims to connect people through science and music. From a team of experienced educators, scientists, musicians, and folk dancers; the Science-Ceilidh works with communities, schools, and festivals in an effort to link music and culture with science. The Science-Ceilidh strives to bring communities and scientists together to explore the benefits of music, dancing and learning. They also collaborate with teachers to provide open-source resources to all educators and to students in need of support.

The Science Ceilidh Band is formed by Lewis Hou (fiddle, calling), Lewis Williamson (fiddle), Gary Rafferty (guitar) and Helen Le-Mar (flute, calling). They are a team of experienced musicians that have incorporated sounds from the techno and geek culture to the traditional Scottish music, which they play at festivals, events, weddings, and conferences (TEDxGlasgow, the Royal Society, Physiological Society Conference, Big Bang Bash at National Museum Scotland, etc).

So get ready for a full Scottish experience!
