Barley Cote Band - a Yorkshire Ceilidh Band
Traditional English music from the foothills of the Pennines
- Chris Partington fiddle
- John Adams fiddle
- Anahata melodeon
- Mary Humphreys keyboard
We all have over 30 years of experience of playing for ceilidhs for local events (parties, weddings, anniversaries etc.) and at public ceilidhs and folk festivals all over the country.
Our music is mostly English and chosen through extensive research into traditional English dance tunes. Our tunes and speeds are carefully chosen to fit the dances perfectly and to get you on your feet and dancing!
We usually work with a caller who guides you through the dances, and we'll provide a caller (we have worked with many) or work with a caller of your choice.
A smaller version of the band is also available, consisting of Mary and Anahata playing as a duo. (formerly Four Hand Band.)
