Get ready to dance the night away with a traditional Céilidh performed live by one of the UK’s best rock ceilidh bands – The Outlandish Knights.
A ceilidh, barn dance or country dance 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!
The Outlandish Knights consists of Ceri Ashton on Flute, Clarinet and Whistle, Cat Ashton on Fiddle and Flute, Chris McMahon on Bass, 12 String Guitar and Keyboards, Paul McMahon on Guitar and Bass, and Danny McMahon on drums. Formed in Sheffield in 2006 by Cat & Ceri Ashton, with Chris & Danny McMahon and Paul McMahon of classic rockers Haze, they play a mixture of traditional tunes and original compositions.
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).
