Ripponden Village Dance

September 29 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Ryburn Longsword have organised another “Village Dance” at the Victoria Hall, Halifax Road, Ripponden, HX6 4BG.

All dancers – young and old, experienced or novice – are invited to come along for a great evening of dancing plus the occasional alternative entertainment during the breaks from dancing.

The Band will be “Posthumous Curtain” and the Caller is Pauline Jones.

“Posthumous Curtain” is a new Folk Dance Band formed by three exciting young musicians who have already made a name for themselves in Folk dance, music, and song.
Alice Jones – whistle, keyboard and percussion;
James Tween – melodeon;
Michael Beeke – pipes and recorder.

Alice, Michael, and James first played together in 2004 when Alice was invited to join The John Dipper Band primarily as a singer but also on clarinet, whistles and piano.  They played many major folk venues and festivals in the UK and in Europe, and they featured on a BBC World television documentary about English Folk Music.

Start 7:30 p.m.

Admission £5:00.

Hope to see you there.
