We’re looking for a solid, consistent percussionist (not a stereotypical drummer nor a bhodran player)to play for dance 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. Note we’re a dance band not a concert band.
Being folk, it’s badly paid – usually fuel money, festival tickets and some beer vouchers!
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).
