NEWS FLASH - Ceilidhography are sad to announce...1st March 2015
Ceilidhography are sad to announce that Simon Bannister, founder member and melodeon player for Ceilidhography for 10 years, will be leaving us at the end of this year and will be going out with a bang at Phoenix Ceilidhs (Friday 8th January 2016). It is with great fondness and nostalgia that we remember the genesis of the band in his front room all those years ago and intend to make this summer's performances worthy of his enthusiasm and commitment in that time.
The band are then going to take some time to reinvent our sound; Simon has been such an integral part of the group for so long that this is an important opportunity to develop, refine and explore old and new material in such a way that we come out in 2017 blazing a new musical trail through the national folk scene, with a different balance of styles, but with the same energy and drive to our music that we've always had.
See you in 2015 for some great dancing and "the Year of the Bannister"; then see you again once we explode from our musical chrysalis once more, as a beautiful butterfly of a band!
