Haddenham Ceilidhs are hosting the Haddenham Festival on Saturday 6th December, from 3.00pm — 11.30pm, in the village hall.
On offer is a fun day of music, dance and humour before all the Christmas stress!
Belshazzar's Feast: start with traditional folk music, add a touch of classical and jazz, throw in a bit of music hall and top it all off with wry humour. Paul Sartin (Bellowhead, Faustus) on voice, fiddle and oboe plus Paul Hutchinson (Hoover The Dog, Playford Liberation Front) on voice and accordion 'play like no-one else you've ever heard', says Mike Harding (BBC 2 Radio), 'Their music is breathtaking and wickedly inventive.' Their 1100 seater concert at Sidmouth Folk week was a sell out. Come along and enjoy their seasonal Christmas show Stocking Fillers.
Ian English Boodlum Band offers a unique and entertaining mix of off-beat songs and comedy. Their instrumental line-up includes ukulele, mandolin, double bass, guitar, piano, washboard and phonofiddle. The Boodlums find humour in the best and worst of popular music — and present a show crammed full of comedy, music, parody and wit.
Penny Kempson was introduced to Haddenham Ceilidhs through NYFTE (National Youth Folklore Troupe of England) and we are pleased that she is bringing along some of her friends to entertain us for an hour or so.
Les Barker is an English poet. He is best known for his comedic poetry and parodies of
popular songs. However he has also produced some very serious thought-provoking written work. Originally from Manchester, he trained in accountancy before his talent for the written word was discovered. He is not a singer but his parodies are always performed to enthusiastic response.
