The Caller: Adrian Brayley - the linchpin of the whole event. With a calm, gentle and humorous manner, he'll take you through each dance, guiding you in the right direction.
If Adrian is unavailable then Nick Wyke or Chris Jewell will lead the dances for us.
Flute: Sue Eeles - filling in the harmony.
If Sue is unavailable then her place is usually taken by one of our fiddle players (see below).
Sax: Sarah Dean - flavouring with pzazz!
If Sarah is unavailable then her place is usually taken by one of our fiddle players (see below).
Bass: Trevor Melhuish - laying the foundation.
If Trevor is unavailable then his place is usually taken by Ed Rennie or Nick Wyke.
Fiddle: Chris Jewell - adding a touch of richness.
If Chris is unavailable then his place is usually taken by Nick Wyke or Claerwen Gillespie.
Please book early: As you'll have noticed, we have a good selection of excellent stand-ins to fill any gaps in the line-up for your particular date. All of these deps are carefully chosen to fit well with the rest of the band but, of course, we will always be at our best when playing with the usual team on board. Booking early will help ensure this but if time is short we'll still put together a first-rate team for you. Guaranteed.
There are some more photos on our music samples page where you can have a listen to some live recordings.
