ceilidh / barn dance band

Second Front has many years of experience playing for barn dances (aka English ceilidhs) in South East England. Our working area is roughly anywhere within 45 minutes drive of Guildford / Farnham, covering middle and west Surrey and adjacent parts of Hampshire (Hants), West Sussex and Berkshire (Berks).

Our sound is rich, lively, rhythmic and musical, with a broad range of tunes and influences. Our caller's main aim is to make the dancing enjoyable for everyone, from beginners up. We do a mix of reels, jigs and polkas, and the occasional hornpipe and waltz. Also, having a Scottish band leader, we are always happy to include some Scottish ceilidh favourites (even have a full Scottish ceilidh).

Typical events we play for include birthday, anniversary and other parties; weddings; social and/or fund raising events for groups such as school PTAs, sports clubs, church groups, charity fund-raising, Morris dance sides, etc.

If you would like to get an impression of how it all looks and sounds then our Demo Video is a useful starting point. For more information and detail see The Dancing page, The Music page, and Frequently Asked Questions and Testimonials pages.
