So what is English Country Dance Music? It's the tunes from Barn Dances Ceildhs and Morris Dancing! Music that people like to dance to, it can be a waltz or a polka but most of all it's the Hornpipe!
We love hornpipes! Those kind of steppy jumpy tunes that sound like the seaside, full of rhythm and fun! It's a hornpipe for us every time!!
We are also known as Ye old vic band -- just to confuse things....also Ye Olde Vic Banned  also The Olde Vic Band---In fact we should have chosen a name which was easy to remember and you couldn't mispell like The Poatoes or something!
