Picture of Trevor Melhuish - Bass player with Sheer Hopody Barn Dance Band

"I started playing bass for Frank Purslow's 'Bampton Barn Dance Band' in the 1980's after a chance meeting with their fiddle player. Since moving to Devon in 1993, I've been very pleased to have played bass for several bands of various styles but am always kept busiest by SheerHopody. It's such a pleasure playing music for dancing, and a good English ceilidh really is such fun.

"I also help to run Hollocombe Music Club - organising their events, as well as giving them the benefit of SheerHopody's top quality sound system."

Playing bass for Sheer Hopody since its inception in 1995, Trevor also has the job of looking after the sound and the administration.
