Ceilidh, Barn Dance Band, Cumbria, Lancs, Lakes (TT5)


Combining the best in British folk music with roots, rock and reggae rhythms, this line-up has been one of the leading ceilidh bands in the area. They developed as part of the new wave of folk dance bands that use predominantly English music with its robust rhythms to get people on the dance floor. They re a 5 piece melodeon led band with keyboards, electric guitars, drums and bass so…..not exactly ‘tea with the Vicar’ !

The band have played every sort of ceilidh – folk festivals, weddings, PTAs, village socials, May Day celebrations you name it, they’ve probably done it.- and they have performed at every major venue in South Lakeland as well as innumerable village halls, schools and hotels in the North West, Kendal Leisure Centre, Coronation Hall Ulverston, Forum 28 Barrow and the Brewery Arts Centre Kendal to name just a few.

One of the musicians also acts as caller to coax you and your friends onto the dance floor, whether you re first timers or experienced dancers.and get you all dancing to their irrestible dance tunes and rhythms. And with 2 vocalists in the band, dancers get a chance to rest and still be entertained.
