WHAT WE DO
The Hosepipe Band
is usually a four-piece band playing for English ceilidhs / barn dances. We play for public events – festivals / public dances – and private events – weddings, parties etc.

Our repertoire combines traditional dance tunes from England, Ireland, Scotland and elsewhere with  our own compositions.

We have made five recordings, all of which are available in various forms from our website.

We also work regularly with the Essex poet Martin Newell, providing musical accompaniment to his poetry. More information here: https://www.hosepipebandmartinnewell.co.uk
