Hole in the Hedge are an exciting new Irish Band from North West England.  They feature award winning professional musicians Bev Whelan, Ben Farmer along with their mutually favourite accompanist and singer Paul Beevers, playing a variety of contemporary and traditional tunes and songs for any event. They can play and sing for concerts, weddings, corporate events and ceilidhs. Experienced callers, Ben and Bev can specialise in calling and playing for a wide variety of needs, or complete beginners who just like to have a go. Bev and Ben have known each other for years and played with Paul Beevers in different bands.  They started playing together whilst teaching on a music workshop residential and decided they wanted to do more of it!

“Ben and his band provided a hell of a surprise party for my mum’s 60th! Their ability to integrate with our extended friends and family, both in terms of the ‘surprise’ moment, the food and the speeches was superb, and really meant we were able to make it personal to mum. She hasn’t stopped beaming since, and commented that having a ceilidh meant that we could enjoy the dance on our own terms, and also chat to reunited friends and family with some excellent background music. From young to old, everyone had a blast!”
