Striding Edge


In stock


Striding Edge’s first full length studio album. A wonderfully varied collection featuring the band at their inventive best. Top dance tunes, haunting ballads, big brass breaks, moments of both grandeur and savagery, this album is dark and mesmerising in it’s intensity. 

Twenty years of playing the community events and festival gatherings of Cumbria and North West England has forged Striding Edge into one of the hottest professional roots bands of the region: A people’s firm favourite for their energy-packed ceilidh nights and varied concerts.

Ben McCabe  Drums, percussion, French horn, vocals.

Carolyn Francis  Fiddle, border Bagpipes, Trombone, vocals.

Mike Willoughby  Vocals, dance-calling, melodeon, bouzouki, guitar, harmonica.
