We’ve had a busy year playing a number of barn dances as well as lots of private parties and some local festivals at Newick itself, the Black Pig orchard and Townings Farm.
We’re continuing to play every first Sunday of the month at the Crown Inn in Newick and this is gradually attracting more musicians and an ever increasing standard of music.
We’ve also got a couple of new members in the band. Karn Broad who plays Bass when we’re doing Ceilidhs and who has increasingly been depping for Steve and “Professor” Roland Batty on Piano. Roland is an incorrigible boogie player who has both added attack to the dance gigs and has greatly extended the range of numbers that we can attempt.
We welcome them both to the band. Here’s a video of our currently Ceilidh line up performing The Leaving of Liverpool with a brief cameo from Jenny Walton – our splendiferous caller.
