Ceilidh // Barn Dance

Stanstead Abbots Ceilidh Society

Sunday15th September

Veteran drummer Rob Gifford (The Committee Band, Flowers and Frolics, Chalktown, Stomp) and seasoned bassist Trevor Lines (Bonfire Radicals, Molten Amba, Chalktown) provide the groove whilst a youthful frontline formed of accordionist Matt Brookes (Capers and Japes, GiffordBrookes) and violist Beth Gifford (Mrs Savage’s Whim, GiffordBrookes) add their dynamic expression and lyrical phrasing to the mix.


Original material from each member of the band results in a plethora of self-penned tunes. Expect impetuous Drums and alluring Bass, layered with brooding, irascible viola and agile, bright accordion, each interacting with the others for a rich and varied texture.

We're available for festivals, weddings, parties and charity fundraisers.
