Chaos on The Dancefloor

Cambridgeshire based Frog on a Bike will led the festivities as we danced the night away!

Often described as one of the Flat Lands’ finest folk-rock ceilidh bands, Frog on a Bike have been an established and popular name on the professional East Anglian ceilidh scene for over 30 years. They have also become a staple of the wider English ceilidh circuit, which includes some of the UK’s biggest folk festivals.

Composers and creative interpreters of traditional tunes, Frog on a Bike’s frenetic energy, distinctive sound and driving rhythm were guaranteed to have us up and dancing.

"[Their] seemingly endless surplus energy should perhaps be harnessed and channelled back to the national grid!" (Richard Penguin for FATEA Magazine, Folk East 2022)".

With a luscious line-up of sumptuous melodeon, recorder, fiddle and mandolin, backed by a riotous rhythm section of bass guitar and drums.

"Just what English Ceilidh dancing is all about!(Hastings Jack in The Green Festival 2023)"

Leading us through the dances for the Stortford Music Festival ceilidh was caller Mary Panton. Mary is one of the most experienced callers and stalwarts of the ceilidh scene today. Mary is also instrumental in running the Knees Up ceilidhs at Cecil Sharp house in London.

Fun for all the family.
