We’re looking for someone who can take over from the 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. Neil has just left us (Manchester is a long way from the rest of us). If no bass sax/tuba/euphonium is about we’d consider baritone sax. Being folk, it’s badly paid – usually fuel money, festival tickets and some beer vouchers! Or if its a private do fuel dosh + £75-100. 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, Will Hall or Fee Lock.
We tend to get together to practise around the Wantage area (Oxfordshire).
