GIG CB! The George Inn Giant Ceilidh Band
Probably the biggest e-ceilidh (and euro-ceilidh) band in the UK – a 14-piece outfit featuring accordions, fiddles, concertina, flute, bass guitar, mandolin, mandola, saxophones and trombones. (A smaller 5/6-piece subset of the band can be provided If required retaining musicality but with reduced ‘wall of sound’ impact.)
Established favourites at one of Europe’s largest dance festivals, the Grand Bal d’Europe at Gennetines, central France, for some 15 years, GIG CB! have built a formidable reputation playing for and teaching English ceilidh dances.
But that’s not all – they also have an expertise with French and Breton dance which they bring to their performance to provide the perfect mix of traditions – euro-ceilidh! The GIG CB! Euro-Ceilidhs have become a regular part of the dancing evenings at Cecil Sharp House.
With musicians from classic bands Rosbif and Gas Mark 5 joining exciting new faces to give a fresh energy and edge to traditional dance music, their fusion of English, French and Breton traditions ensure an exhilarating and powerful sound. Two CDs available.
