Thread Name: Tech: amplifying acoustic ceilidh bands
Subject: Tech: amplifying acoustic ceilidh bands
We have a loose collective of around 50 musicians - squeezers, fiddles, whistles. guitars, banjos, bass, percussion and so on. We play as a ceilidh of whoever turns up. This generally gives a band of between 10 and 20 and surprisingly a good cross section of instruments.

In small halls we simply play acoustically but for larger halls I think we need some PA. In terms of mikes and so on what is the best way of collecting our 'group sound'?
