Diatonics 02
John Spiers

Another of the very popular Haddenham Ceilidhs takes place on Saturday week, 3rd December

Music for dancing in the main hall (which commences at 8.00pm) will be provided by Diatonics, with Nick Walden calling. There will also be an opportunity to watch the Haddenham Mummers perform their traditional folk theatre.

Diatonics are a lively and energetic band with a distinct style that will ensure dancing will be at its best. The band has a back line of drums, bass and guitars which fuse with melodeons and fiddle. The last time at Haddenham they took the place by storm!

Meanwhile, the concert in the intimate Walter Rose room, which will start at 8.40pm with a short spot from the compere, Kitty Vernon, will be followed by a 20 minute spot from Watling Street and then two 45 minute spots from the main guest of the evening, John Spiers.

John Spiers, known as 'Squeezy', has made a name for himself as one of the leading squeezebox players of his generation. Well known for his long-standing duo partnership with Jon Boden in the formidable Spiers & Boden as well as his contribution to the massively popular Bellowhead, John has also played with Eliza Carthy's Ratcatchers and a number of local folk-dance bands.

The doors will open 7.15pm. An admission charge of £12, lets you dance or enjoy the concert or perhaps a bit of both! The "House Full" signs are rarely put up as the village hall provides lots of space, but if you are concerned about gaining admission on the evening, just Email or telephone John Heydon and he will reserve tickets for you on the door.

For more information, contact John at Action Folk, John's House, 5 Church Street, Aylesbury, Bucks HP20 2QP Tel. 07717 047039. Email: john@actionfolk.co.uk
