Lewes Ceilidh's Summer Ball - 13th July
Come to the Lewes Ceilidhs Summer Ball. (adults and over 14s only)
We are throwing tradition to the wind by holding a summer ceilidh on Friday 13th July no less. The music will be fantastic; driving, inspired, rhythmic and bold. We have Linda Game on fiddle, Tom Andrews on drums, Graham Burgess on keyboard and Connie Everard on double bass.
Bring lots of friends and help make this the most successful Lewes Ceilidh event to date.
Linda and Tom are both members of ‘The Fold’ a highly successful folk rock group who play both nationally and internationally. For one number during each Fold gig, the other musicians leave the stage to Tom and Linda whose remarkable, improvised duos are a highlight for many in the audience. Linda’s playing is so versatile and dynamic and Tom follows her lead impeccably, matching her every move.
Graham and Tom play together in the Jethro Tull tribute band ‘The Dayglo Pirates’. Graham is the newest member of the band and his outstanding keyboard playing is helping the ‘Pirates’ forge ahead. He and Linda musically feed off each other to create a very exciting and fresh sound.
Connie is quite simply a fantastic double bass player whose playing has been the root of many bands, Lewes Ceilidhs and Ceilidh Club events.
The four of them played for the last Lewes Ceilidh event in May and I was so impressed by the driving rhythms and sounds they created I just had to book them again!
I will be calling the dances with my usual enthusiasm and will cater for dancers both experienced and new with a range of interesting dances.
