Ceilidh band
Public liability insurance of £10 million
Sussex Folk / Ceilidh band playing traditional music of these islands + other stuff we like. Can be booked as Trio to 6 piece with caller

The band was started in 2010 so now we have been playing together for 7 years. We’ve come a long way in that time. David and Jem are sadly no longer with us. Karn (Bass), Roland (Piano), Rhiannon (Violin) and our Caller Jenny have joined Martin (Whistles) and Alan to form a tight line up suitable for pubs, parties and Ceilidhs. We’ve learned our trade as we went and our range of tunes and songs now covers all the traditions of these islands ranging from full on Irish for St Patrick’s day to a number of what we term “off piste” numbers such as Lily the Pink, My old man’s a Dustman, GI Blues and even The Nightingale sang in Berkeley Square. We always aim to tailor the repertoire to the event and we can guarantee an entertaining evening. If you would like to hear us play before you book us we host regular sessions on the evening of the first Sunday of the Month in the Crown in Newick.

Just a quick thankyou to you and the band for a fantastic day at our wedding on 1st September. Everyone loved your music (some won't stop talking about you!) and we couldn't have asked for better.

Thank you for the wonderful performance you did at our wedding. Everyone said you guys were so good and I'm just sorry I didn't get to chat to you more - you know how weddings are, they tend to be a little hectic!
