It’s with a heavy heart we wave goodbye to the Old Swan Band who have previously filled this weekend … but we’re delighted to welcome Token Women for a fun and funky folk weekend of tunes and dances to leave you sockless!

With an unbeatable line-up of Jo Freya, Alice Kinlock*, Heather Horsley, Jo May, Linda Game and Fi Fraser, Token Women are an unrivalled ceilidh band who also play concerts – as well or a mix of both. Driving fiddles, saxes, clarinets, keyboard, percussion, tuba, euphonium and trombone combine with a pan European repertoire for a really varied mix of sound. Listening to them is like being inside someone’s wild, joyous music party – and you’re invited to join them for this practical musicians’ weekend! What better way to get your year off to a riotous musical start?

We’ll be adding more details shortly, so watch this space…

*Alice sadly won’t be able to make it to Halsway for the whole of this weekend, although we hope she may make it for the gig / ceilidh on Saturday evening. We might be bringing in someone to dep for her, we’ll let you know asap!

Who’s it For?

Musicians – all ages, all instruments, all abilities except total beginners – who want to have fun exploring playing music for dancing in small and larger ensembles.
