Stalwarts of the North West scene, Tumbling Tom will be your dance band on Saturday night. TT combine the best in British folk music with roots, rock and reggae rhythms. The band developed as part of the new wave of electric folk dance music playing predominantly English music with its robust dance rhythms. The musicians in the band have tons of experience, having played festivals and every other type of dance event in the region over more years than some of them care to admit!
The band has a ‘folk rock’ lineup featuring melodeon, harmonica, electric guitars, percussion, drums and bass. Our caller Les will lead you through a selection of dances and will coax you and your friends onto the dance floor, whether you’re first timers or experienced dancers.
Especially for the festival the band will be augmented by brass players Rose on trumpet, and Claire on alto sax to create the unique Tumbling Tom Big Band sound.
So come down and join us and get ready to boogie.
