CATS WHISKERS MUSIC
Welcome to Cats Whiskers Music Home Page.
|WHO ARE WE?
We are the Bristol based Barn Dance, Country Dance, eceilidh, Ceilidh
Dance or Folk Dance Band that everyone has heard about, but that are so
elusive that no one knows how to contact us. We are not to be confused
with other admirable bands within this musical genre that may have a
similar name. One day we will find about who's been around the longest
- if that really matters!
We play predominantly English traditional dance music, but also pick
appropriate Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Danish, French, Swedish, German,
French-Canadian and American tunes that suit our style of playing. Most
importantly the music is for dancing, uniquely Cats Whiskers play for
fun - we enjoy playing lively tunes. We believe that its our enthusiasm
for cracking good tunes that really are good to dance exudes from our
performance to bring pleasure, fun and laughs to our audience what ever
We specialise in playing for events that have novices, dance virgins,
beginners, non-folkies, the anti-morris dancer league, as well as
coping with hard toed eceilidh fanatics, and well stuffed wedding
guests. Birthday bashes and retirement hair downers (sorry not
hoe-downers) secret anniversaries, Village Hops, Harvest Homes,
PTA fund raisers, Barbies, Marquees, we'll do it!!
We will provide you with a caller and six musicians playing a mix of
instruments that makes Cats Whiskers style of music unique. Andy Brewer
on Bass Guitar; Dave Byett on Trombone and Melodeon; Nigel Cooke on
Melodeons and Anglo Concertina; Glynn Hooson Owen on Drums or even
Accoustic guitar; Tom Randall on Banjo; Paul Rosser on Electric Bridge
Fiddle and electro-accoustic Mandolin. Occasionally we may be joined by
Pippa Cooke on Clarinet and Peter Vowles on Piano Accordion or
Keyboards; Jeremy Cooke on Drums or Nick Cooke on Melodeon.
Dave on 'Bone
