Barn Dance with Tenterhooks and Caller Sarah Clough
November 18 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Ryburn 3 Step’s 2017 – 18 programme of Barn Dances at Waring Green Community Centre in Brighouse continues on Saturday November 18th with the Tenterhooks Band with Caller Sarah Clough.
Sarah Clough called for our Barn Dance in February and we had a great night’s dancing. She has a range of dances in her repertoire, including some usual English, Scottish, Irish and American choices plus some more obscure dances to keep things interesting for the more experienced ceilidh-goer.
Tenterhooks is a fine local band playing traditional English dance music on fiddles, cello and border pipes. Their repertoire of tunes and dances is mainly Northern English, partly of their own researching from antique fiddler’s manuscripts. The twin fiddle, or fiddle and bellows-blown ‘half-long’ bagpipe, and cello lineup is typical of the old English village bands, as is the driving and rhythmic style of playing. The members of Tenterhooks are:
Chris Partington – fiddle;
Paul Roberts – fiddle and Border bagpipes;
Alison Roberts – Cello.
They have played together in various line-ups and styles for over twenty years, at many major Folk Festivals, including Broadstairs, Cambridge, Sidmouth, Whitby, and the National at Loughborough.
Start 8:00 p.m. finish about 11:00 p.m, bring your own refreshments.
