The Aldbrickham Band is an well-established and experienced barn dance band, based in Reading, Berkshire. We specialise in country dancing (or barn dancing) with our caller - Alan Dyer who will guide you through a variety of different dances. We perform mainly English traditional country-dance music and dances, but can include Scottish, Irish and American dances on request.
We play regularly for barn dances at weddings receptions, birthday parties, anniversaries and other functions. We have also performed at theatres (including the Reading Hexagon and The Wyvern Theatre, Swindon), arts centres and folk-festivals in Berkshire, Oxfordshire and the South of England. We can also perform songs and tunes just for listening to, with our vocalist - Marianne Segal.
We are able to offer different line-ups of our barn dance band to suit your occasion :
a) An ‘acoustic’ band - with a variety of traditional instruments, including melodeon, concertina, fiddle and cello. Most suited to smaller venues /functions.
b) A larger ‘electric’ band - with melodeon and fiddle alongside the more modern rhythmic sounds of electric guitar, bass and drums. More suited to larger venues / functions. (See the video film of this band in action - by clicking on 'Video' on top of this page.)
