Cheap Jack are available for social dances at festivals, charity fundraisers, school PTA events, birthday parties, and weddings.

The classic line-up of fiddles, melodeon and piano is intriguingly enhanced by the addition of hurdy gurdy, concertina and foot percussion to provide a solid, driving beat guaranteed to get everyone up dancing. A friendly caller will talk you gently through the dances and a professional sound system will be provided.

Based in London and Bedford, the band play mainly in London and the Home Counties (sometimes beyond!) dispensing mirth and jollity with their infectious, no nonsense approach to country dance music. The repertoire is mainly traditional English tunes, collated from the tune books of village musicians from the seventeenth to twentieth centuries.

This is great! Is it Irish?
