Northumbrian Ceilidh nights

warkworth ceilidhOn the 8th March we celebrated our first year of Northumbrian Ceilidhs at Warkworth Memorial Hall. 50 of us danced, played and sang through the evening.

We are very fortunate in having a wonderful live band for these events. On this occasion The Reel Northumbria Ceilidh Band were missing Peter Hollins, its regular Melodeon player. However Vic Gammon and Mark (a student from Newcastle University Folk Degree) stepped in to the breach ably supporting our regular musicians Sandra Kerr and Peter Bromley.

Elaine Carter was there to coax us through the various dances and between dances we were blessed with some fine singing, musicianship and cake.

The Ceilidhs are held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, with forthcoming dates of 12th April, 10th May and the 14th June. All welcome, no experience necessary. We have no bar so please bring your own refreshments and glasses.
