Use our enquiry form to get in touch.


SheerHopody Traditional

The traditional recipe: A melodeon lead with fiddle, flute, guitar and bass - this has all the essential ingredients for a fun-packed barn dance. Richard Ashe on melodeon ensures a good traditional sound and a comprehensive repertoire of tunes, supported by Nick Wyke on fiddle, Sue Eeles on flute, Adrian Shearing on acoustic guitar and Trevor Melhuish on acoustic bass.

Priced from £725*.

SheerHopody Spice

For those who like it hot: Sarah Dean on alto-sax accompanies Bob Powell on melodeon and Nick Wyke on fiddle in this steaming 5-piece line-up - just great for a lively, english-style ceilidh. With Adrian Shearing on guitar and Trevor Melhuish on electric bass, this line-up produces a unique sound that is irresistible.

Priced from £725*.

SheerHopody Crème

Not for the faint-hearted: This line-up combines the above into one amazing 6-piece band featuring some of Devon's best folk musicians performing together to produce an impressively solid wall of sound. Undoubtedly, this is SheerHopody at its best. The Full English Ceilidh!

Priced from £845*.

* All the above prices include our experienced caller, Adrian Brayley. There may be additonal charges involved to cover travel costs - see below.


SheerHopody Lite

Looking for something smaller: If you can't manage any of the above due to space or budget limitations, then maybe this stripped-down line-up might suit. A basic 3-piece (melodeon, acoustic guitar, and acoustic bass) with Nick Wyke calling - who will also double up on fiddle.

Priced from £580.

There may be additonal charges involved to cover travel costs - see below.


Dates we definitely cannot do:

We are unable to take any bookings during August.

Choose the band that suits you best, or let us know your basic requirements and budget and we'll propose a suitable line-up.

Occassionally, one or more of the above named musicians may be unavailable for your particular date. If this is case, we will find alternatives for you to consider before you decide to book us. Book early to be sure of getting our best team. You can read about each of us on our 'biogs' page.

Travel Costs

If the proposed venue is not near Exeter or Crediton, we will need to make a charge for the cost of travel which we hope you'll agree is only fair.

Time of Travel

Occassionally, we may need to include travel time in the cost as well. There is no extra charge for bookings within a 45-minute drive of Exeter or Crediton, and we take into account the overall timings, so for instance, a short dance of two hours is unlikely to incur any extra travel time unless it's a long way away.

Discounts

If you are organising a public event as a fund-raiser, we may be able to offer a discount. Please ask when making an enquiry and give us as much info about the event as possible.
