Vic Folk : Ceilidh (part of the Weekend Tunefest)

All dances will be called, no experience or partner required.

There will be a session at the venue after the dancing.

Vic Folk has a ceilidh band with a flexible lineup that has been putting on ceilidhs in 2017. The aim of the band is both to provide lively dance tunes, mostly in the Irish and Scottish traditions, for the dancers and to offer an accessible way for musicians to gain experience in playing for dance.

To this end, Vic Folk runs regular practices, and will be hosting a workshop during the Tune Fest to give interested musicians a chance to learn some tunes and join in with the main band lineup.

On this occasion we’re lucky to be joined by a guest caller, Caoimhe McKearney from County Tyrone, Ireland. Caoimhe has led the Cambridge University ceilidh band and has years of experience on the professional ceilidh circuit in London. We’re delighted to have her here to get the party going on Saturday!
