Caddam Wood is a four piece band, based in Sheffield. We play for barn dances, weddings, birthday parties, fund raisers, plus any other celebrations where country dancing is part of a fun and enjoyable evening.
We mainly play for bookings in the South Yorkshire area plus Derbyshire and North Nottinghamshire. We will sometimes travel further and we have played in other parts of Yorkshire, plus Lancashire and Lincolnshire.
Our usual line up comprises:
Fred Butlin: Mandolin & Mandola
Tim Cole: Guitar
Roger Boreham: Piano Accordion
Donald Richardson: Keyboard, Flute & Whistles
We use several different callers with the band, who will walk you through the steps before you dance with the music. We play music from all parts of the UK, plus USA, France and other parts of Europe. In addition to the dance music we play music to listen to, in between the dances, from a variety of sources, including Eastern Europe, Sweden, and music written by band members. The band is also available to play at a party where you would like music to listen to, but no dancing.
Here are a few examples of our music; if you would like to hear more a CD is available, please contact us.Player not loaded? Click here to listen to our demos on Soundcloud
