Product Notes

The Hosepipe Band is a five-piece band which was formed in 1993 and is an English ceilidh / barn-dance band playing traditional and composed material. Rhythmic and melodic, the band's sound combines British and European influences. The band plays at dance venues, folk clubs and festivals and for the normal round of private functions. Line-up Mandola / Melodeon; Concertina; Hurdy-gurdy / Drums & percussion / Bass guitar / Flute; Recorders; Wind controller; English bagpipes; Hammered dulcimer; Bombarde Kettleburgh Fete is the band's fifth recording but the first to comprise solely English dance tracks. The 16-page booklet which accompanies the CD contains instructions for 12 dances which can be danced to the 12 tracks of music. These instructions are provided by the band's regular callers. Reviews quotes English Dance and Song, Autumn 2007 • ...intended as a package for people to dance to. If you run a dance club or group where live music is not available, then this CD will prove a valuable addition to your resources. • For me, the real gem on this recording is the lead on recorder, as this adds a definite sparkle and brightness to the overall sound. The Living Tradition, Issue 75, Autumn 2007 • ...with this one CD, not only do we get a grand set of tunes, but we can learn things to do with out feet as we listen. • The music is as polished as ever. The tune sets combine traditional and self-penned numbers, and the music builds up in a nicely-layered manner, getting the pace just right for dancing, but also meriting a listen in it's own right. There is great interplay between the musicians, who are obviously having a great time recording. • A fine addition to the collection for anyone interested in English ceilidh dancing. Mardles, Autumn-Winter 2007 • On the first hearing of this album I was immediately struck by some of the tunes, especially 'Fork in the Road' and the set 'May's Hornpipe / Jet's Hornpipe'. • The playing is stylish, and the musical arrangements imaginative. This is a musical snapshot of an excellent local and nationally known dance band at work.
