This just in from Haddenham ceilidhs:
We are looking forward to Saturday evening, December 3rd for our Ceilidh and concert at Haddenham Village Hall.
For our Ceilidh in the main hall, dancing starts at 8pm – Music provided by DIATONICS, NICK WALDEN calling the dances and a chance to watch THE HADDENHAM MUMMERS performing the traditional Haddenham mummers play.
Diatonics are a lively and energetic band with a distinct style that will ensure dancing will be at it’s best. The band has a back line of drums, bass and guitars which fuse with melodeons and fiddle. The last time at Haddenham they took the place by storm!
Meanwhile, our concert in the intimate Walter Rose room starts at 8.40pm with a short spot from our compere. KITTY VERNON, followed by a 20 minute spot from WATLING STREET and then two 45 minute spots from our main guest of the evening, JOHN SPIERS.
John Spiers, known as Squeezy, has made a name for himself as one of the leading squeezebox players of his generation. Well known for his long-standing duo partnership with Jon Boden in the formidable Spiers & Boden as well as his contribution to the massively popular Bellowhead, John has also played with Eliza Carthy’s Ratcatchers and a number of local folk-dance bands.
Doors open 7.15pm, dancing starts at 8pm. An admission charge of £12, lets you dance or enjoy the concert or perhaps a bit of both! We rarely put up “House Full” signs – it is a large venue but if you are concerned about gaining admission on the evening, just e-mail or telephone and we will reserve tickets for you on the door.
Please feel free to forward this e-mail to anyone or any other groups you feel may be interested.
Details of our programme up to June 2017 are available on our website.
