Description

Price from: £450
Fee will be Base price plus an allowance for travel time and expenses.

Dawntreader are a powerful and dynamic Ceilidh/Barn Dance Band with Caller.

We are a 3 piece Ceilidh Band playing English, Irish, Scottish and some European music. Our mix of traditional folk music with strong melodies and powerful rhythms is ideally suited to Ceilidh and Barn Dances.

Debs, our Caller has 15 yrs of experience in Calling with Ceilidh Bands and has Dances to suit all abilities, including some fun dances for the little ones. She has been the resident Caller with the Dawntreaders since 2009, and has grown with the Band into a highly professional Wedding Ceilidh Caller, although she is equally at home with a local village hall Party.

Our Musicians are :-

Lynn Fiddle : I don't need to say much about her playing, the music sample speaks for itself. She is a gifted Musician with ability rarely seen at this level. She plays a 5 string Fiddle, which gives her an extended range of notes compared to a standard 4 string. Mel has been playing continuously with Lynn since 2005...

"Burns' Night Supper, RMB Chivenor,

""Just a quick email to thank you and the rest of Dawntreader for attending our Burns Supper Saturday last. You were Fantastic and were instrumental in making the night a raging success. Debs controlled the whiskey induced masses with true style and the music was exceptional. I hope all was good for you, and that you all enjoyed your night. We will definitely be using your services again. Thanks again Mel and regards to Debs, Mark, Lynn and John."""
