Dear Slow Sessionistas,
I cannot recommend this ceilidh band highly enough. They make dancing joy!
And free! And Open air! And in the afternoon!
Unfortunately I am organising my mother’s memorial, otherwise I would definitely definitely be there… So dance for me too and enjoy!
Saturday 9 October, 4-5.30pm, Faringdon Market Place (S6 bus from Oxford every 30 mins)
The Dirty Big Canal Dance Band (in slightly scaled-down form as the Little Big Canal Dance Band!) is playing a ceilidh, outside, for real! Jane, Colin, and the mighty Jo(h)ns; Fletcher (Magpie Lane) and Ruddock (Xogara, Rholben) are delighted to reunite with brilliant caller Jane Bird. There’ll be an emphasis on keeping things safe and joyous, and Jane B will call dances that work in small groups. And it’s free! Come and dance your socks off with us!
This dance has been put on by the lovely people of Oxfolk Ceilidhs, in partnership with ‘Folk Weekend Oxford On Tour’, who have created a one-day mini-festival in Faringdon. There are sessions, Morris, and gigs going on all day, culminating in a concert by the incomparable Nancy Kerr and James Fagan. Details of all the events as part of the day are available here: https://www.folkweekendoxford.co.uk/9-uncategorised/449-folk-weekend-on-tour-faringdon.html
Have a great day!
