Ceilidh Band, North East England, Borders, Cumberland (NE01)


Based in Northumberland,as a 4 piece ceilidh band these fellows specialise in the lively jigs,reels,hornpipes and tuneful slow airs and waltzes which feature in the traditional music of Northumberland and the Borders.The band’s repertoire also includes many newly written additions to the Northumbrian tradition.

Whilst the band’s sound bases itself on the traditional blend of the fiddle and accordion,these are supported by a rhythm section which,depending on availability and/or customer choice,can include second accordion,piano,bass and drums – and maybe even the left hand side of Colin’s MIDI accordion.The line-up is completed by David,the band’s resident experienced caller

(available also as 5 piece band – see elsewhere)
