WHELKWOOD: dances from Britain and beyond


WhelkWood musicians have decades of experience in playing music for a cornucopia of dances inspired by the English, French, Irish, Klezmer and Scottish traditions. In fact, we have probably spent more Saturdays at other peoples’ parties than at our own events. (disclaimer: we are available on other nights, too)

Whether you are a novice to ceilidh dancing or have years of experience, our callers will lead dances to make sure your party or event goes with a swing.

If you have a favourite dance or tune you would like to include at your event, just ask. If you do so in advance, we may even learn it if it is not already in our extensive repertoire.
