The Exe Valley Barn Dance/ Ceilidh Band

We are four musicians living in the Exe Valley, in and around Bampton and Dulverton. Between us we have a wealth of experience in playing for audiences of all types and ages. We play music from all around the British Isles and beyond. John, our whistle player is strongly influenced by the Irish tradition and has taught courses at our local college in Tiverton. Peter, our banjo and guitar player, studied classical guitar in London, and has played in folk bands, rock and roll groups and big swing bands.

Matt and Lyn ran 'Scotch The Rumour' a highly successful, Midlands based, ceilidh and barn dance band. They also worked with local authorities, project managing large Folk Festivals. Matt teaches music in his spare time and is also a musician for West Somerset Morris Men.
