Wirral-based barn dance band Two Left Feet, was formed five years ago, and consists of Richard Wilde on fiddle and melodeon, Jon Mayhew on guitar, mandolins, and bodhran, Chris Watson on keyboards and guitar, and Jonathan Heyes on bass, guitar, and flute.
The band is joined by Arthur Marshall, caller extraordinaire. Arthur plays accordion, mandolin, and anything else at hand, and explains the dances to the audience in his own inimitable style, ensuring that nothing can possibly go wrong (well that's the theory anyway).
Two Left Feet have a huge repertoire of music and dances from the British Isles, and America. Arthur explains each dance before it is played. Then the band let rip!
The band plays for all the main ceilidh nights - Burns Night, St Andrew's Day, St Patrick's Day, New Years Eve - and also provides ‘hoe downs’ for American Independence Day. They have also performed at weddings galore, socials, carnivals, fairs, company shindigs, movie launches for Twentieth Century Fox, school and charity fundraisers.
The band has broadcast on BBC radio and has been twice featured on Radio Merseyside's Folk Scene programme, as well as many other local radio stations around the country.
The band provides it own PA system, through which they can play recorded music during their breaks. They normally perform for about two hours and our quoted price is for the five-piece band including caller.
Price: from £450
