SUMMER CEILIDH SUCCESS

 

 

JAMAS band, augmented by our friend, Mary Marker, provided the music for the evening and the 60+ who purchased tickets as usual came from various dance groups around the Exeter area - Chudleigh Folk Dancers, Bovey Tracey Scottish Country Dance Class, the University of the Third Age, Ashburton Group and of course our Society were well represented - 50%  of the tickets sold were bought by Society members for themselves of their guests .

The enthusiastic dancers were led by Kathie de Salis, the leader of the Bovey Tracey Group in a mixture of English and Scottish Country and Ceilidh Dances. The word "enthusiastic" was used to describe the dancers, because for the last hour or so of the evening instead of clearing the floor and returning to their seats,they stayed on the floor and did one dance after another usually with a lot of noise and laughter !

The evening got off to a good start with our Piper, Charlie marching in, playing a couple of pieces and finishing with Amazing Grace, accompanied by the band - a very nice sound.  Charlie was once again featured when he accompanied Duncan Brown, an expert Highland solo dancer in a spot in each half of the programme - two very competent performers.  The evening was brought to a close with Charlie and the band in Highland Cathedral.

This was a very good evening, a very good buffet, thanks to Hilda, expertly compered by our Martin Taggart and the Exeter & District Caledonian Society was brought to the notice of our visitors.
