This month - Valiant Dance Band with caller Sheena Masson.
The line-up of Katie Howson (melodeon), Liz Giddings (fiddle), Roger Digby (anglo concertina), Rob Neal (cello) and John Howson (banjo) has created a band that plays unusual and danceable tunes with the conviction which only comes from years of total immersion in traditional music. Over the years members have played in many of England’s most influential ceilidh bands.
Sheena is a regular at Unicorn Ceilidhs, and has worked with many top bands. Her enjoyment of the dance and music is infectious!
It's a barn dance - or is it a ceilidh? And what's that? A ceilidh (say kayley) is your chance to dance English traditional country dances with others. The caller describes all the moves (very simple) and the dancers walk through the whole dance once - then the band starts - and a great time is had by all ! Dance as vigorously or as sedately as you wish - and don't worry if you get it wrong. Most dances are for couples, but singles and groups are welcome. There's a break about 9.15 when we organise a dance display - generally Morris or similar - to entertain you, and a Raffle . See our website at www.unicornceilidhs.org.uk for all details
St Mary's Hall venue
New venue with better access and ventilation, and also slightly larger - more room to dance! The hall is NW of St Mary's Church within its grounds. No parking within the church grounds.
The hall is in the grounds of St Mary's Church, Baldock. Park as near as you like to the Old Town Hall - it's a 2 minute walk from there to the new venue. Parking on High Street or at the Twitchell Car Park, off Simpson Drive (with the library on the corner).
Address: Church Street Baldock Hertfordshire SG7 5AE
