A Ceilidh (pronounced "Kay-lee", emphasis on 1st syllable) is many things. It derives from the Gaelic word meaning a visit and originally meant just that (and still does in Gaelic). It can also mean a house party, a concert or more usually an evening of informal Scottish traditional dancing to informal music. Ceilidhs in the lowlands tend to be dances, in the highlands they tend to be concerts. Ceilidhs are extremely popular indeed with young people and often attract from a few dozen people to several hundred.
St. Andrew's Society of Detroit's Ceilidh is Metro Detroit's premier Scottish concert. It is a kick-off party/concert to our Annual Highland Games and is held the night before the Games on the Games field.
