Ross Hitchin, Herts CEILIDH - end of month (UK) (26) RE: Hitchin, Herts CEILIDH - end of month 21 May 09



Present on


The regular monthly ceilidh season continues into its eighth year in the Ballroom at Hitchin Town Hall on Friday 29th May 2009 with THE AARDVARK CEILIDH BAND, who are, without a doubt, one of the most energetic and exciting bands on the English barn-dance circuit.

The dances are called by melodeon and (hammered) dulcimer-player Pete Grassby, with Colin Halliwell on drums, Martin Trewinnard on bass guitar and Pete Laity on that most traditional of folk instruments - the Fender Stratocaster.

'If Led Zeppelin had decided to go into playing ceilidhs in the early '70s this is what they would have sounded like. It warmed the cockles of an old folk-rockers heart!' (Chester Folk Festival, May 2005)

Firmly enjoyed by beginner or seasoned dancer alike, The Aardvarks bring ceilidh dancing into the 21st century with their gutsy, energetic music, that drives your feet, your legs and your body to new extremes.

Unicorn Ceilidhs take place on the last Friday of the month at Hitchin Town Hall, Brand Street, Hitchin, Herts SG5 1HX.
