I've just heard Duncan Chisolm and Mike Mcgoldrick on radio 2 and it made me think who I would like as the ideal backing band. They would be hard to beat.
Any preferences?
FloraG.

I would be looking for 3 or 4 squeezers, 2 banjos, 3 guitars, 4 fiddles, loads of recorders and whistles, bongos and snares, smallpipes, maybe a 'cello or two and an elecrtic bass.

And here they are!

Best wishes

I'm surprised everyone wanted so many backers. This sounds more like an orchestra than a folk group. I know the trend is to finish a festival with a big band - but wouldn't most people for personal satisfaction want 2 or three playing with expertise and improvisation.

as long as they can play and follow the singer with augmentation and empathy, a fiddle and harmony voice.

Richard Thompson should have sacked his bassist

Assuming I played a lead instrument I'd want Sam Kelly on drums and Pete Stroud on bass. If I was on washboard I'd want Sonny Black on guitar.
