In which we reach the heights

Yes, it was oxygen mask time again on Saturday for our third time at Walmersley Golf Club near Bury, perched high on the hills with incredible views over the valley.

To be honest you don’t expect Golfers to enjoy folk dancing do you ? but the gig gets better every year, and a capacity crowd danced all night and made many kind appreciative comments.

I think if the Music is good, and the caller can put over the dances to perhaps a sceptical first time audience, people can forget their built in predjudice (teenagers and heavy metallers excepted) and have a good time.

I only speak for the Old School Band, here, not all Ceilidh Bands, try us and you won’t be disappointed.

Don’t believe our word

I did say our Poynton gig was good, here’s the customer’s view ….

Dear Phil and members of the Old School Band
 
On behalf of our group I’d like to thank you very much for providing such tremendously enjoyable music and dancing for our fundraising event last Saturday night. We all enjoyed the event very much and this is mainly due to your excellent music and caller. Personally even when I felt quite tired, I could not help but dance to your very uplifting music.
 
Thank you also for providing such a professional service. Everything went very smoothly from booking to setting up to the whole event itself.  
With kind regards
Maïté MORANTIN-MILLER
