Our Favourite Links On The Web

Martin Kiff's Dance Pages:
Probably the Best web resource for the dancer in the U.K. Links to lots of other bands, venues and
festivals - also Martin's views on dancing. Don't know how he does it as last I heard he spends most of his time working in Vienna.

EFDSS The English Folk Dance And Song Society: Lots of information about publications and events

Solent Waves : The monthly newsletter of the Folk Association Of South Hampshire (FASH)

Fo'c'sle Folk Music Club : Southampton's longest running folk club. I used to be a resident 20 plus years ago. Fantastic collection of useful links as well as the current program of events and guests.

M27 Megabops : Southampton's monthly "Big" Ceilidhi, Good bands and callers. Well I have to say that, don't I, they've booked us on several occassions.

Folk Roots : One of the most influential Folk Magazines in the UK.

Local Bands

Rufus Return: One of the best young bands on the South Coast. Danny the button box player is the son of Simon Harmer who used to play brass with us a year or two ago. New CD on the stocks can't wait to hear it.

Spike Island Band: They used to have a link to us but they seem to have removed it. We're not mean so their link is still here

Reavers Rant. Probably the best Celtic influenced band in this area, very popular and often seen at the local festivals

Instrument Sites

The Violin Company We now sell Violins - fiddles for folkies. Quite a good range both new and secondhand. Also Bows, shoulder rests, strings, rosin and other useful goodies. Stock constantly changing, it's a good idea to check if you're looking for a Violin or send us an email if you're looking for something specific.

Internet Radio American streaming radio station with a good selection of song and dance music. Mainly American, mainly folk but allsorts of other stuff gets included now and again, which keeps your interest alive. I listen to it lots. They've even got our CD but I've still to hear a track!!
