Ceilidh Band, whole UK, Northants, Midlands, London (CE12)



Back in 1989,this ceilidh band originally formed as the perfect antidote to some of the stiff-starchy Country-dance bands of the time.They set out to be a a band playing traditional English music that rocked (rather than just being another 'Folk-Rock' band).After some line-up changes,the band finally hit the festival scene - within a very short time they were one of the most sought-after ceilidh bands on the UK festival circuit.

The band have since appeared at almost every festival in the UK,including Glastonbury, Sidmouth, Towersey, Chippenham, Cambridge, Fairport's Cropredy Convention etc

In a recent poll of BBC Folk Awards,the band were voted second in the Best Dance Band category.

Primarily an English Ceilidh band until three years ago - when enter Mark Hutchinson.Then their style combined song and traditional English music with so many different musical genres - Rap,Reggae,Blues,Country etc etc... whatever takes their fancy !
