Music Groups

The Blue Kettle Ceilidh Band

The Blue Kettle Ceilidh Band is an adult student band which meet weekly to rehearse and perform together – all levels are catered for. We have stacks of fun and perform around 10 ceilidhs a year – many of these gigs are for charity in local village halls around the Vale of Belvoir and we link up with Toothill School Ceilidh Band and local ceilidh caller Charlie Charlton and Inverness born ceilidh caller Dougie McInnes to create some really fun ceilidh barndances!

The repertoire is varied from ceilidh music to world music and exciting classical tangos!

Toothill Ceilidh Folk Band

Tuesday lunchtimes at Toothill School this student band is led by myself and we perform around 6 gigs a year and we link up with The Blue Kettle Ceilidh Band to have a lot of fun on stage – sometimes we are a 3 generation band of 20 musicians!

Classical Tango Band

This is an adult student band and we meet monthly to play classical Argentinian tangos, focussing on ensemble playing and refined classical technique – the music is exquisite!

Orston Violin Club

Local children I teach meet weekly on Mondays after school at Orston Primary School to play fun tunes they enjoy and to learn ensemble playing so they can perform regularly at Orston Primary School where I teach violin and have confidence to audition for local ensemble groups and orchestras.

Cotgrave Violin Club

Ensemble playing and solo performances at school concerts at Candleby Lane School where children enjoy playing fun tunes regularly to their class and to parents at school concerts – this is where I teach violin on Tuesday afternoons.
