The Brookfield Band Picture of the Band

What is the Brookfield Band, and what does it do?

We're a Barn Dance Band (a.k.a. Ceilidh Band, folk dance band, call it what you will) that operates in and around Hertfordshire, in England. We play for wedding receptions, birthday parties, PTA events, church socials, ceilidhs, etc. We don't expect anyone present to be an expert, as we will bring along a caller to tell you what to do.

We normally go out as a 4-piece band, comprising violin, recorder (or flute), double bass (or bass guitar) and piano-accordion. We don't have a drummer, as the band produces plenty of bounce, thanks to the skill of the musicians, and the great tunes that we play. You can listen to us by clicking on the "Music" hotlinks (above and below).

Most of the band members live in central and eastern Hertfordshire, so bookings within an hour's travel of there should be OK.

And yes, we do have Public Liability insurance (via the English Folk Dance and Song Society).
