Some of our relatives

Miranda Sykes
She's a fantastic singer and bass player who is Spalding born and bred. Miranda still plays now and again with Show of Hands and is also now part of Daphne's Flight. She's a proper star, catch one her solo gigs if you can. 

The Beltonas

A great ceilidh band in their day, but in hibernation for the  time being due to illness. 

Akmed's Camel
The artistes formerly known as Akmed's Camel.  And then weren't. And now are again. Another terrific ceilidh band with many years experience

Much rockier version of the Acoustic Itch with expanded line-up and different repertoire. 

The South Lincolnshire Appalachian Dance Show. Meets for practice on most Tuesday evenings at St Mary’s Church Hall, Pinchbeck.
