Irish - Box Hill School St Patricks Night, Trafalgar Square Irish Festival stage
General - Glastonbury, Brighton Festival, Cite de la Musique Paris, Celebrity Weddings, Folk Prom Albert Hall, Masque of the Red Death end of show ceilidh.
With their line up you get a few extras thanks to their multitaskers - the caller is also a musician playing a variety of wind instruments (although she hasn't managed to master this while calling!) and a melodeon lead who plays a thumping dance rhythm on a genuine 1930s Hawkes bass drum. This band are guaranteed to get your party jumping around with their lively sound and thier caller soon has young, old and those who protest they never dance polka-ing, jigging and reeling like they never imagined.

|Wedding Anniversary||"In the confusion of getting everyone to finish their beers and get on the buses I completely forgot to come and thank you and say good-bye! Well, can Ann and I please say a huge thank you for a great evening's entertainment. All my guests were trying guess what I had been planning - anything from pub games in the village local to clay pigeon shooting to polo! I don't think anyone expected Scottish Country Dancing so my little surprise went well. The music was spot-on and you were brilliant with your calling and getting people up dancing. Everyone really enjoyed it so our thanks again - even our Scottish friends and relations said it was a long time since they had "been to a ceilidh". The little spot of rain was a shame but I think by the time we all had our curry we would have been too full for dancing! Best wishes - Dave & Ann. PS: we will have no hesitation in recommending you to others."|
