Dances with The Fruitcake Ceilidh Band

The Fruitcake Band

The Fruitcake Band

Ceilidh is now a generic name for social traditional dance night. Some call it a Barn Dance or a Country Dance. Dances and tunes come from all over the UK and occasionally from other parts of Europe.

The members of the Fruitcake Band have been providing dance nights which are tailored to the occasion and the skills of the dancers, and with Maggie's clear instructions at the start of each set, you will all be able to join in the fun.

Most members of the band play more than one instrument so you will hear whistles, fiddles, melodeons, hammered dulcimer, small bagpipes, guitar, bouzouki, mandolin, banjo, and percussion. Between sets, while you get your breath back, you will get more music and song.

The band regularly plays in school, church, town  and village halls, barns and pubs throughout Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Rutland and even further. If you've got room to dance, the band will play the music to fill that space.

A Ceilidh night is the most fun you can have while remaining fully clothed. If you would like to organize a laugh filled dance for your sports or social group, your town or village or a family event then contact Alan or Maggie.
These events are great fun for young and old. They provide a lot of exercise and even if you just sit on the side to watch, a great evening out. If the event is private, organised for a club or society it will not be advertised here.

When the event is an open or public event, the following list of dates also shows the contact point - please check on availably of tickets before you turn up, and where there are tickets available come along, have fun and support the dance organisers.
