Organiser of the Haddenham Ceilidhs, John Heydon, welcomes new and regular visitors to the New Year of folk events in Haddenham village hall.
We are all looking forward to our first Ceilidh and Concert in the New Year this Saturday at Haddenham Village Hall.
For our Ceilidh in the Main Hall, we start at 8.00pm with music from Asha with Simon Loake calling the dances, a short dance display from Jo & Simon Harmer and a couple of songs from Ninebarrow.
Asha is an exciting five-piece multi-instrumental ceilidh band with a broad dynamic range second to none, ranging from exhilarating tunes with synthesizer and electric guitar to soft lilting melodies featuring flute, violin and melodeon.
Our concert in the intimate Walter Rose Room will start at 8.45pm with a short spot from our compere, Kitty Vernon, followed by a 20-minute spot from Out of Hand and then two 45-minute spots from our main guests of the evening, Ninebarrow.
From this January, the 20 minute spots will feature young musicians and singers. For the first -one of this series we have Out of Hand, a spin-off band from NYFTE who provided the music for one of the afternoon ceilidhs at the Chippenham Festival earlier this year. Following their performance, you can then enjoy Ninebarrow whose accompaniments are sensitive, never intrusive — they leave plenty of room for the song. These musicians are making a big name for themselves!
Doors open 7.15pm, dancing starts at 8.00pm. £11 lets you dance or enjoy the concert or perhaps a bit of both! We rarely put up "House Full " signs as the village hall is a wonderfully accommodating venue but if you are concerned about gaining admission on the evening, just email or telephone me and I will reserve ticket for you on the door.
Full details of our programme up to June 2016 are available on our website.

Moreover, unlike last year, very few of those only went in for one or two classes, so the overall number of classes entered was well up at 579. Most classes...
