While our first Costa del Folk was judged a resounding success by festival-goers and artists alike, we’ve had lots of suggestions as to how we can make it even better.
Top of the list was a heartfelt plea that we should include regular ceilidhs in the programme of events – and that’s just what we’re going to be doing in Spain and Portugal next year.
And what a line-up of ceilidh bands and callers we’ve got for you. On successive nights in Spain you’ll be able to dance the night away with returning Costa del Folk favourites Blackbeard’s Tea Party and Steamchicken , plus the Liam Robinson Dance Band.
There’ll also be a new ceilidh band – including some old faces – making its dancing debut under the title of the Costa Del Folk All Stars!
Callers for the ceilidhs are Liam Robinson and Lisa Heywood, who will also be running daily ceilidh workshops, including classes for newcomers to ceilidh over the first couple of days.
