Highly Strung Community Band

We play traditional dance music from England, Ireland and Scotland for barn dances, ceilis, fetes and community events.  New members are very welcome.

We meet weekly to practice and learn new tunes.  We learn by ear and also have the option of revising tunes at home with on-line recordings and visual aids such as tabulature and manuscript.


Weekly group practice session - we are currently meeting via zoom - contact Jill for the link  jillyelliot@gmail.com

Beginners are encouraged to play with more experienced players at one of our weekly events.  Use your new skills in practical and fun way with others and quickly gain in confidence.
