    The Ceilidh Project is back with another ceilidh and workshop, this time in Barnard Castle with the incredible Whapweasel.

    Renowned folk dance band Whapweasel have been delighting and exhausting the folk dance enthusiasts for the last 20 years. This solid eight piece folk rock dance band have over that time notched up 6 albums of enthralling, turbo- charged dance music attracting rave reviews and packed dance floors and the accolade of Dance Band Of The Year at the Radio Two Folk Awards.

    As with all of the ceilidh project events, M@HoT will also be hosting a free public workshop for musicians interested in learning the music and skills necessary to play for dancing. Led by the members of Whapweasel this will be a brilliant opportunity to develop your playing skills – all you need to bring is your own instrument to play.

    In addition to the amazing music, we have Michelle Holding as our resident ceilidh caller throughout the project. Michelle champions gender-neutral and fun approach to calling, catering for the adept and experienced as well as total beginners.
