Description

Price from: £370

We play folk/rock English country dance music. We are happy playing for beginners and experts alike, or those somewhere in between. Our aim is to ensure that everyone goes away having had a really good time. Whilst we primarily perform in the South West of England, we are more than happy to go further afield.
