2013 Events
This year was over in a flash but with lots of highlights. One minute we were experiencing a feedback problem at Phoenix Ceilidhs the next we were enjoying after-gig kebabs in Amman, Jordan where we played several gigs to mark St. Patricks night. Next we were supporting some well known folk stars as part of the Homeground Project. All in all another good year in which we continued to develop our professionalism, our repertoire and arrangements. Thanks to all those who contributed to making this another successful year including Roger Downing, the Calderbank Calling Company, Rhodri Davies, Alison Scott, Neil Graham, Gary Ward, & John Taylor. And a very special thank you to Jane-Ann Heffernan and Sameera Al Asir for being so helpful and hospitable and making our Jordanian trip more like a holiday. I look forward to our return, I hope you do!
