Tumbling Tom Band 'the ceilidh roots dance band for people out there'

Combining the best in British folk music with roots, rock and reggae rhythms, Tumbling Tom has for many years been the leading ceilidh band in the area.  The band developed as part of the new wave of folk dance bands that use predominantly English music with it’s robust rhythms to get people onto the dance floor. Led by a melodeon, the 5 piece band also include keyboards, electric guitars, drums and bass to produce a lively sound.
