Calendar 2012: Schedule of Striding Edge shows


January/February 2012

Striding Edge have started their eighteenth year on the road and are now busy taking their Northern roots music around the community venues and function rooms of the North West once again. Its great to have warmed up to the new year with some cracking gigs including a couple of Burns Night ceilidhs, at Slyne near Lancaster on the 28th January and on at Kirkland on February 4th. There is a strong connection in our music with Scottish dance music and song...Carolyn plays the Scottish border bagpipes, and we presented some songs by Robbie Burns, the great bard of Scotland, plus some specially arranged wild Scottish pipe jigs on these nights. Both nights proved to be absolutely cracking ceilidh dances, with the floor filled for every dance called: It was nice to make new friends amongst the dancers, and also great to meet again some familliar friends who keep returning to our Burns night ceilidhs in the Lancaster region over the years: A big "Hello and thanks" to all!!

Striding Edge are ever popular in the local village hall setting, and you have the chance to enjoy 'Edge at one of their regular village hall ceilidhs at Halton Community Centre on the 10th March. For booking details on this show, go to our calendar>>

BOOKING NOW ! Mike is manning the phone and the e-mails and is busy scheduling the year's shows so do get in touch with him if you wish to discuss your own special ceilidh night! (Mike says: "Brrr! its a bit chilly in the office right now..black ice on the street outside...hope it's a bit warmer where you are!")
