Walter Rose Room, VH
By Haddenham Webteam - 7th January 2017 10:30am
Haddenham Ceilidhs return to the village hall on Saturday 7th January. Dancing in the main hall starts at 8.00pm to music provided by 'Peeping Tom', with Hugh Rippon calling the dances and Mabel Gubbins Rapper offering a dance display.
'Peeping Tom' are considered by many to be the UK's favourite Ceilidh band. Their unmistakeable folk/rock sound has been often imitated, but never bettered. They are kept in control by Hugh Rippon, who was the Haddenham Ceilidh's regular caller for many years.
For the folk concert in the Walter Rose room, compere Kitty Vernon will start the proceedings just after 8.30pm and will introduce Granny's Attic and the Barber Sisters.
Granny's Attic are a folk trio who play with verve, energy and their own inimitable style. These three young men are all exceptional musicians and are heralded for their lively performances and maturity beyond their years.
For the 20 minute spot preceding Granny's Attic, the Barber Sisters, who are strongly influenced by the Scottish Fiddle Tradition, will create their own arrangements skilfully weaving their sounds into a musically satisfying whole.
Doors open 7.15pm, dancing starts at 8pm.
An admission charge of £12, lets you dance or enjoy the concert or perhaps a bit of both!
We rarely put up "House Full" signs — it is a large venue but if you are concerned about gaining admission on the evening, just Email or telephone and we will reserve tickets for you on the door.

Details of the programme up to June 2017 are available on the Haddenham Ceilidh's website.
