Andy says: 'I decided to book this trio after hearing them play at Gainsborough Folk Club.
It has been too long since Celtic was featured at Faldingworth/Nettlehamlive, and I am delighted that this trio, with their musical pedigree, can come and play for us.'
This is a trio playing and singing mainstream Celtic folk. The line-up is:
Chris Dyson: fiddle, mandolin and mandolin
Paddy Heffron: vocals, button accordion
Gordon Tyrrall: vocals, flute, guitar
Of their pedigree, they have many musical identities, but are perhaps best known as Chris for Gaelforce , Gordon for Dab Hand and Paddy for his association with the Leeds Comhaltas (as is Chris).
are a Lincolnshire a cappella duo comprising Jim Haycock and Geoff Convery. They sing fine songs from the British tradition and their own acclaimed writing, and we are delighted to welcome them back.
