2014 Events
We've had a good year and have enjoyed every gig. We've played 3 more than last year so things are still going the right way slowly but surely. There are a few that stand out for us. An early one at Manchester Ceilidhs where we virtually played ourselves out! One at Lytham where we'd dressed to kill on request but no one else had bothered and we played our socks off! A great wedding at Ramsbottom Civic Hall where we had to play an encore! Phoenix Ceilidhs was great too and finally, our recent trip to Ellel Village Hall where the enthusiasm of the dancers was second to none.

The new PA is a dream. It was expensive but proved to be money well spent. It's a quality piece of kit (or they are) and the sound is amazingly clean even when it's cranked up to fill a large concert hall. It's just over a year old now despite still smelling like I've just taken it out of the box! If I had to do the same again I would, definitely.

There are a number of people who deserve a big thank you from the band. Firstly bassmen Greg and John for stepping up to the mark so well. And, masters of the spoken word and all things dancey, Roger, Sid, Liz, Rachel, Dave & Rhodri. Without them all we'd have nothing to do. Thanks guys.

Our very best Christmas wishes from the Band to all who know us, to baby Laurel and all the others who we're yet to meet. We're looking forward to it. xx Here are some of the bookings we've played this year:-
