A bal is the European version of a ceilidh. Most of the dances are in couples rather than sets and are easy to pick up as you go. We’ll be running a beginners dance workshop at the start of the evening to show you everything you need to get out on the dance floor.

Doors open 19:00
Balfolk basics dance workshop 19:15
Bal starts 20:15
Tickets: £16.50 (£13.50 conc) including £1.50 booking fee

Geronimo is the solo project of Jeroen Geerinck (Snaarmaarwaar, Hot Griselda, Spilar). He is a musician and record producer active in the Belgian folk scene. Jeroen is mostly known for adding a signature style of energetic playing to the sound of the bands that he plays in. As a record producer and studio engineer he also has a great deal of experience in creating folk albums and always looks to mix in new flavors. ‘Geronimo' is a like playground where he can take the experiment of mixing genres further than ever since it is a solo project, and no compromises are needed. His new album 'Run High' is packed with pure melodies, fine rhythms; delicate fingerpicking, and folky shredding. https://www.jeroengeerinck.com/geronimo

Emily Bowden and Simon Dumpleton are two thirds of the Anglo-Belgian folk trio Emily & the Simons. Their music is centred around Emily’s compositions, drawing inspiration from life's encounters and the energy of the dance-floor.
