SPINACH FOR NORMAN

. . . for every celebration . . .

SPINACH FOR NORMAN plays traditional dance music for ceilidhs and celebrations of all kinds. We're based in the South-West of England but happy to travel beyond.

Most of our tunes and dances come from the British Isles, so you'll hear plenty of Irish Jigs, Scottish Reels & Northumbrian Hornpipes, but we're likely to slip in some French, American and Transylvanian flavours too.

We can give you a mixed bag, then, but if it's an all-Irish / Scottish / English evening that you want, that's also something we offer, and just as much fun.

WEDDINGS

S4N HAS PLAYED FOR WEDDINGS & CIVIL PARTNERSHIPS in castles, village halls, banqueting halls, barns, loads of marquees and a four-man tent. We've lost count.

We can provide background music when you would like some, but the heart of the wedding party is usually the ceilidh dancing, the perfect ice-breaker and a chance for everyone to let their hair down.

Every ceilidh needs a caller to lead the dancing and PAM HAYES is ours. She's hugely popular and great with adults, children, experienced & inexperienced dancers alike. Her dances are mainly traditional, always fun, suitable for everyone and quick & easy to learn.

Pam will consult you to find out exactly how you want the evening to go and can offer some special wedding dances. There's one for blessing the bride & groom, for instance - much wilder than it sounds - and another for giving them a traditional Scottish farewell as they leave for their honeymoon . . .
