The Team

Hosted by Shirley Williams with Ivan Aitken as caller.

3D is Chris, Julie and Nick Dewhurst.  They are well-known in folk dance circles, both for their live music and for their popular recordings, and have a busy schedule playing for English and Scottish dance events and festivals up and down the country.  Their roots in folk music go back many years, but they have played together as a family band since 1997, when Nick decided he would like to join in the fun!
