A ceilidh, ceili, barn dance, hoe down, folk dance, country dance or whatever you want to call it is a great fun way to meet people and even helps to keep you fit. No prior dancing experience is necessary as all the dances are called – with the caller explaining all the dances in detail – ensuring everyone has great fun no matter how many right and left feet you may have!
Powerhouse Ceilidh Band
Powerhouse are a four / five piece ceilidh band consisting of melodeon, flute, electric guitar, bass and drums. Brought together by a mutual love of rock, beer and general geekiness, they combine traditional tunes with rock riffage and pop culture to tempt even the most determined non-dancer.
John Brown who is a bit of a regular at Derby Ceilidhs is an established part of the ceilidh scene in the north of England, and has become a large part of the Sheffield ceilidh tradition. His calling style could best be described as fun, blending interesting dances not often seen with old favourites delivered with a degree of humour that puts the dancers at ease and helps everyone have fun. He can be found calling regularly at most the ceilidh series in the north, and festivals up and down the country. He’s been very involved with the student folk scene calling for Sheffield Ceilidh Soc and plenty of behind the scenes work for IVFDF (the student folk festival).
Come along and enjoy 3 of the best hours of your week with a live band and caller. All the dances are explained so no experience is necessary. Doors open at 7.30pm with dancing from 8pm-11pm (with a short break halfway through).
