You’ll be in safe hands with the expert calling and playing from our band Nedron’s Jig. Between them they play squeezebox, fiddle, mandola and bass. The caller will guide you through the dances and the four musicians are two from the folk super-group Feast of Fiddles and two from the band Phungus.

A social evening of dance in our 18th century Long Barn - no experience necessary!

 

Fri Nov 15      KATHRYN TICKELL & THE DARKENING.

Kathryn Tickell and her band of musicians from Northumberland, Scotland and England bring some of the oldest Northumbrian tunes and songs throbbing to life, intermingling them with new material and binding it all together with contemporary resonance and attitude. Featuring Northumbrian smallpipes, fiddle, vocals, accordion, mandolin, percussion and clog dancing this band’s music blazes fiercely….

 

Sat Dec 14      CHRISTMAS CEILIDH with NEDRON’S JIG.

Enjoy a festive fling at the Christmas Ceilidh! The 18th century Long Barn makes this particularly atmospheric at this time of year. This is a great alternative to the traditional Christmas party so groups are welcome too.

 

Thur Dec 19     THE ALBION CHRISTMAS BAND.

Simon Nicol, Kellie While and Simon Care join once again with the founder of Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span and The Albion Band, Ashley Hutchings. The Albion Christmas Show is a seasonal mixture of carols, spoken word, Christmas songs and humorous readings. The perfect way to start your festivities!
