Festival Cèilidh with Moonaroon

Tuesday 2 July
7.30pm doors open | 8pm – learn the moves | 9pm – The Barn Dance Proper

Founded in Oxford in the legendary Half Moon pub, The Moonaroon Cèilidh Band have been performing together since 2019. They combine a traditional Irish sound inspired by Fleadh-winning bands of recent years with callers from the comedy and theatre worlds to give audiences a thrilling night of dancing that feels rooted in tradition, with fabulous fiddles, irresistible rhythms, and calls that will get any dancer – whether a beginner or a veteran barn dancer (don’t worry – the festival director is a complete novice!) – spinning and cheering on the dancefloor!

Josh Newman, fiddle, vocals | Mitch Keely, fiddle, guitar, banjo, bouzouki
Dom McGann, vocals, bodhrán, percussion, harmonium | Jack Evans, guitar, vocals, whistle
