Second Front has many years of experience playing for barn dances / English ceilidhs in South East England. Their sound is rich, lively, rhythmic and musical, with a broad range of tunes and influences. Their caller, Bridget Flett’s main aim is to make the dancing enjoyable for everyone, from absolute beginners to experienced ceilidh-goes. They perform a mix of reels, jigs and polkas, and the occasional hornpipe and waltz. Also, having a Scottish band leader, they are always happy to include some Scottish ceilidh favorites.

GBH Ceilidhs have been going since 1976. The raison d'etre has always been to book the best and most exciting English folk dance bands and dance callers from all over the country. Experts and newcomers are all welcome, especially the latter as it is important that we keep the tradition alive and thriving.
