The next event organised by Haddenham Ceilidhs is this Saturday evening, 1st April, at Haddenham Village Hall.
For the Ceilidh in the Main Hall, dancing starts at 8pm — with music provided by Jam and Crumpet Band and Bob Morgan calling the dances. Customs and Exiles will give a dance display.
The Jam and Crumpet Band are the very essence of English dance music. Four great Warwickshire musicians come together to provide super foot tapping dance music. They feature Ted Crum on melodeon and and harmonica, Andrew Sharpe on piano, Sue Crum on drums and Mandy Sutton on tenor saxophone. Three of the band members are also in that world-famous Warwickshire band, Steamchicken.
Customs and Exiles from Wokingham perform traditional Northwest Morris dances with high energy and precision with superb music provided by an awesome band.
In the Walter Rose room, compere Kitty Vernon will start the proceedings just after 8.30pm and will introduce Gregg Russel and Ciaran Algar and one of last year's New Roots Finalists, Ben Moss.
Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar are BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award winners 2013, BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award winners 2014 and BBC radio 2 Best Duo nominees 2015. Not a bad record so far! Ciaran plays fiddle and Gregg guitar. Gregg was in the recent wonderful production of The Transports.
Ben Moss, on this occasion as a solo performer plays self-penned songs and tunes as well as lesser-known traditional songs. He accompanies on fiddle and melodeon. He also plays in one of our recently booked ceilidh bands, Diatonics.
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! The "House Full" signs are rare put up but if you are concerned about gaining admission on the evening, just Email or telephone and John Heydon and he will reserve tickets for you on the door.
