Midsummer European Dance Weekend - June 14/15

Friday June 14th - Blowzabella

Returning to one of their favourite venues this amazing band play driving European dance music with their unique and much loved wall of sound. They are now in their 41st year and legends in their own life time. Their music mixes bagpipes, hurdy gurdy, accordion, violin, voices, bass and saxes and whilst firmly based in traditional music is mostly self penned material. Blowzabella will be supported by a short set from Anna Pack (accordion) and Ravi Sawney (fiddle).
