Any suggestions for a good CD to play when taking a 30min break at gigs. We mostly play at Wedding Ceilidhs. Something traditional but not all jigs and reels as we would have been playing them ourselves.

I think "what to play" should be the option of the venue management. I often hear a CD of the next-booked performer when I go to things and it helps raise awareness of what's to be expected of them when I see their name advertised at that venue or elsewhere.

When it's up to oneself (and not to the venue/promoter/whatever) to provide between-sets sounds, I would think you'd want to choose recordings more-or-less within the genre you play, but to avoid:

1) An entire CD (or even 2 consecutuive numbers) by the same artist; use a "sampler" album or your own mix instead;

2) Original versions of songs you "cover";

3) Recordings of individuals or groups too similar (in instrumentation, overall sound, etc.) to yourself/selves, to avoid suffering by comparison!

A bit left-field, perhaps, but how about some Western Swing? I always find it provides a perfect contrast to just about anything and never fails to raise a smile.
Bob Wills, Red Foley, any of those, and there are umpteen compilations out. There's a decent budget one called As Good As It Gets.

I am sure you have all thought about the performing rights/licence/copyright issues.

Not sure about the USA, but in the UK, if you want to play someone else's CD or copyright material in public, you need to ensure the venue is licenced!

Mary Humphries and Anahata's (treewind on Mudcat) new CD would be ideal.

if your band play all instrumental numbers, perhaps some vocals would be a good contrast. If there is a wedding party and people might like a
different sort of music than what they have been dancing to, how about
some celtic harp or something with less of a beat than the dance music?

We always tracks from our CDs (that we're not doing on the night) keeps things sounding "the same" and also has led to more CD sales!
