Folk Camps Party Band -  mixed generations and mixed abilities making distinctive folk music together that is both musically satisfying and good to dance to. There is a core of 4 professionals combined with teenagers young kids and grandparents making up a 18 piece band - fantastic tunes with a funky rhythm section and great brass and sections.
 
Folk Camps Party Band had its first outing at Chippenham Festival last year. To call it a success would be an understatement. The reception from festival organisers, dancers, fellow musicians, sound crew and general public was positively overwhelming.
