The perfect band for your Folk Dance, Barn Dance or Ceilidh
(whatever you prefer to call it!).
Based in East Dorset, UK, No Strings Attached are happy to get your feet moving in Devon, Cornwall, Hampshire, Sussex, Kent, Somerset, Wiltshire, Berkshire - in fact anywhere on the south coast and beyond!
No Strings Attached play the best of English Dance Music plus tunes from Ireland and Scotland. Throw in a mixture of mid European music for variation and entertainment and you have the perfect evening.
Led by the melodeon of Martin Jardine with support lead from Bev Burgess on Sax, there is always a lively contrast of tune and counter harmonies going on. Bass and rhythm come from Vera Jardine on Piano, Steve Lilliss on tuba whilst Ray Sargent adds a jazzy overtone on alto sax or sympathetic accompaniment on recorder, all combining to add interest for the listener and an uplift for the dancers.
These motley musicians have been playing in various bands since 1974. Every member of the band is a dancer. This vast range of experience coupled with youthful energy creates a powerful line up that makes everyone want to get out of their seat and dance.
The band plays for Barn Dances, Folk Clubs, Weddings, Medieval Banquets and Corporate Functions. They also sing and play other instruments for a whole host of other events.
No Strings Attached have appeared at the following Folk Festivals:
