‘Absolutely stunning… full on, full of life, and verve’ ~ Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2
Following another epic summer of festival appearances across the UK, folk septet The Old Dance School are bringing their dueling fiddles, soaring brass crescendos and foot-stomping grooves to Ropetackle as part of their Spring UK tour.
The Old Dance School’s new show draws on three widely applauded studio albums, and five years together that have taken the band from cowshed rehearsals, to remote lighthouses, to main stage appearances at international festivals.
Championed by BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris, the band’s provocative songs and expansive, cinematic sound has received plaudits throughout the country by press and audiences alike. The seven members of The Old Dance School may seem fresh faced, but don’t let them fool you, the diversity and scale of each one’s musical journey is quite remarkable. Epic stuff.
