We’re looking for someone who can be a spare/dep bass sax player in Monty’s Maggot – a very English sounding ceilidh dance band with a line up of national names in the English traditional / folk music world. If no bass sax is about we might consider baritone. Being folk, it’s badly paid – usually fuel money, festival tickets and some beer vouchers! Ideally we want someone who can play FOR DANCE like Neil Gledhill (Monty’s Maggot & The Old Swan Band – listen to OSB cds or www.montysmaggot.co.uk tunes page, a typical tune is http://montysmaggot.co.uk/doc/babes_in_the_wood-double_figure_8.mp3
We play at major festivals (Sidmouth, Shrewsbury, Wallingford Bunkfest etc) and private dos, weddings etc and usually have a ‘national name’ caller like Nick Walden or Fee Lock.
We tend to get together to practise around the Wantage area (Oxfordshire).
