This month - King Kontra String Band band with caller Adam Hughes. Phoenix Morris dance at the interval.
Vere on fiddle, Ian on mandolin and banjo, and Pete on guitar are joined by amazing double bass player Al Harris to create that special string band sound. Expect a perfect fusion of the drive, energy, and originality of King Kontra with steadier authentic Western Swing, Old Time and Irish. A great blend of original and traditional material played by masters of their instruments.
Adam has been calling for ceilidhs for many years and with many bands, and loves Contra dances. If you like Contra, this one's for you!
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).
