The musical repertoire of the band is based mainly on traditional English dance tunes and music written by Andy. This is complemented by classics from 1066 to 1966! The talented line up of skilful multi-instrumentalists plays in a wide range and variety of styles and draws on influences from traditional roots, folk rock, jazz, and rock & roll. The music sounds fresh and exciting with no two tunes ever sounding the same.
