Can you bear the suspense? Well, ok, I’ll put you out of your misery…
From 14-19th March next year, the Costa del Folk festival will see a hotel on the Costa del Sol filled with the sounds of Steeleye Span, Ciaran Algar and Greg Russel, and Coope, Boyes and Simpson. However, now in its second year, the 2015 festival will be even better than the first because…*drum roll*…they’ve decided to add ceilidh dancing to the menu!
Myself and the lovely Liam Robinson will be calling ceilidhs with the likes of Blackbeard’s Teaparty, Steamchicken, the Liam Robinson Dance Band and the Costa del Folk Allstars. Pretty exciting to say the least! We’ll also be running some dance workshops in the daytime, including some beginner sessions at the start of the week (so not having done it before is no excuse not to join the fun!).
In other news, I’ve had a fantastic summer of festivals in the UK – which ended with calling a ceilidh with the fantabulous Simon Care Trio at Towersey Folk Festival. My next public gig to look out for is a contra dance in Birmingham with The Night Before on the 5th September. Hope to see you there!
