Calendar 2013: Schedule of Striding Edge shows

March 2013

Hello! Striding Edge have started their eighteenth year on the road and are well into a busy schedule of gigs that are taking them round their 'stamping ground' of North Lancashire and Cumbria once again. The years action once again kicked off with a regular trio of very lively function ceilidhs: The first was for Kendal Mountaineering Club at Staveley; a group of very fit outdoor people who from the first foot-fall on the dance floor made it plain that they were there for a full-on night of dancing and nothing less would do! We gladly obliged...Next up were two Burns night gigs we have played every year for a while now..Slyne with Hest on the 26th January and Kirkland near Garstang on the 2nd February. As usual, we relished the opportunity of playing some genuine Robbie Burns songs and some wild Scottish music courtesy of Carolyn's border bagpipes...Aye, stirring stuff. What great nights both these are; floors filled for every dance. The wedding ceilidhs we have played early in the year have also been absolute crackers: Typical of the kind of energetic gig we have played was for Ossi and Sarah's wedding in Windermere on the 16th Feb. Mother of the bride Angela writes: "Many thanks to you and all the band members for a fantastic ceilidh last weekend. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the dancing and the whole eveneing went with a swing..." for more comments on what Angela and other clients have said about us, go to client quotes>>.
