the band


The core of our band is usually melodeons, accordions and concertinas, but we have had almost any acoustic instrument you care to name at one time or another.  Sheet music is available for those who can "read the dots". Sometimes we hold band practices, and we often send the musicians into the next room when we are learning a new dance, so there is always a chance for beginners to have a go and join in.  We also have a fine tradition of retiring worn-out dancers to the band and hauling out musicians to replace them, so there is no need to feel you have to choose one or the other...
