The Bristol Ceilidh Quartet brings together three experienced English folk fiddlers and a fab cellist to make a big string sound with loads of energy and drive. The band take great tunes and create exciting arrangements exploring the dynamic range of the string quartet. This isn’t serious classical music though, all the musicians have spent many years playing for traditional dance; every tune is calculated to get feet tapping and people on the dance floor.
They were very excited for the opportunity to combine their other skills as composers, arrangers and singers to work with the Heritage Lottery-funded Single Gloucester project in 2016, and will continue to explore the rich repertoire of Gloucestershire tunes and songs this year. We are also delighted to have joined the Hop Till You Drop Live Music Agency.
“One of the most energetic and percussive ceilidh bands playing anywhere right now- their gigs are unmissable.” – Ed Barrow, Bristol Ceilidh
