ruffCeilidh Saturday November 19th. Make it a date for 8pm. CF14 4XW

“You know you’re guaranteed a good night when you see Steamchicken’s name on the bill. Their genre defying sound flirts shamelessly with jazz, blues and folk, but they refuse to be pigeon-holed. Their performance is endlessly watchable, enviably accomplished and ridiculously fun. And it’s a scientifically certified fact that no mammal can listen to Steamchicken and resist dancing.” – Blackbeards’s Tea Party

Lisa Heywood - caller

Lisa Heywood's repertoire includes Old English Playford dances and American contra dances, as well as English, Scottish and Irish Ceilidh dances. 

"My ethos is that that the important thing is having fun, not ‘getting it right’, so I will often adapt the dances I call to suit the age and ability of the audience. Whatever the event, I always ensure that the evenings’ dancing is fun, energetic and inclusive!"

Interval guests - 

The Cardiff Morris are one of the earliest 1970's revival sides. Formed in early 1970 by a small enthusiastic group made up of experienced dancers who had migrated from Morris sides in other parts of the country and local recruits with a feeling for folk dance and song, we have been dancing the Morris in South Wales for over forty years.
Our dances are generally derived from the Cotswold traditions, although you may see us perform our own tradition of dance from the village of Nantgarw, just north of Cardiff. This tradition is distinguished by the fact that it is an eight-person dance rather than the Cotswold style with six dancers. The local connection is reinforced by the Welsh dragon and Cardiff Coat of Arms on our Welsh-weave "baldricks", or cross-sashes, and we are often accompanied by Idris, our own dancing dragon.

Bob Morgan calling, Eddy Jay and Will Pound - together they gave us a superb ceilidh and the Moreton Roadshow kept up the standard with an outstanding interval spot.

It really was a super evening and I am only sorry so many of you missed it.
If I'd known Bob Morgan was recording this I might have tried to dance with more style but this is how it was.
