Full Description
  • We perform traditional and some contemporary Irish, Scots and English music - tunes to dance to and songs to sing along with. If you don't know the dances, our caller will teach you. If you don't know the songs, just tap your feet and clap your hands! We will cover Dorset, Hampshire and South Wiltshire in general but you are welcome to try us if further afield. Available as 5 piece with a separate caller or, as a 4 piece with Noeleen calling. Either way it will be a great night with charismatic calling and mellifluous music and you will have been 'Murphed'. We can cater for Scottish 'flavoured' Ceilidhs, although for most Barn Dance/ Ceilidhs we would keep it mixed to allow dancers of all experience levels to enjoy themselves. Our aim is to 'entertain, not educate', it should be fun after all!
