November 2016 ceilidh

Euroceilidh feat. Moirai

with callers Jo Freya + Daisy Black

12 November 2016

Doors open 7.30pm, dance starts 8pm and ends 11.30pm

We are delighted to welcome Moirai: featuring what The Living Tradition magazine calls the “three auspicious talents” of Jo Freya (Blowzabella, Token Women, Fraser Sisters), Sarah Matthews (Cupola, Cupola:Ward) and Melanie Biggs (Boxtet).

This trio of superb dance musicians play compelling, beautiful and irresistible music and will give you a night of dancing you will never forget.

This is a Euroceilidh, so expect some continental European dances as well some ceilidh classics. All the dances will be carefully explained and called by Jo and special guest caller Daisy Black. Daisy is a Sheffield based caller, co-founder of Playford in the Pub (what a brilliant idea!) and expert on many literary and medieval things.

Half-time entertainment comes from the glorious Mabel Gubbins, Oxfordshire’s premier rapper team. If you’ve never seen rapper sword dancing before, it’s far too complicated to explain here, so come and see for yourself.
