CEILIDHS & DANCE

FAMILY CEILIDH
Friday | Stage 2
 
Stumpy Oak - with caller Mary Panton
Natives of East Anglia, the ever-popular Stumpy Oak present a rhythmic, frenetic performance of tunes from across the British Isles featuring an extended line-up of fiery dual fiddles, accordion, flute, guitar and stomp box. Prepare to get your feet moving!
 

MAIN CEILIDH 
Friday | Stage 2
 
simoncareTrio - with caller Kate Haynes
The simoncareTrio are Simon Care, Guy Fletcher, Mark Jolley and Tom Wright - famous for the fact that they’ve always been a four-piece!! Between them they have played with many bands, Edward II, The Magpie Arc, Little Johnny England, Whapweasel, Banter, TRADarrr, The Morris On Band, The Albion Band... the list goes on! There is every chance that the line-up will also include Phil Beer (Show of Hands), and Tim Walker (Banter). We are really looking forward to them returning to Cambridge Folk Festival for a stompingly cool ceilidh.
 

SILENT CEILIDH
Saturday | Stage 2
 
The Urban Folk Theory's Silent Live Ceilidh band - featuring caller Cate Haynes
There have been many versions of the Silent Disco or Ceilidh, but none like this! The Urban Folk Theory are back to bring their all new and shiny Silent Live Ceilidh Band to Cambridge...top trad tunes played live versus classic and groundbreaking dance, pop, reggae, folk and just plain awesome tracks remixed specifically for the ceilidh...two channels, two worlds of dance, one Cambridge! Bring your dancing shoes people!
