The distinctive sounds of ceilidh music return to Baldock Town Hall next Friday night as the Unicorn team bring another special guest to their monthly sessions.

Topping the bill are Random, whose six members delight in bringing their vast experience of all kinds of folk and dance music to the fore to get audiences up and moving.

They serve up a sound which is gutsy and melodic as they play a folk-rock interpretation of tunes with traditional roots.

It creates scintillating but subtle ceilidh music that will make you want to dance.

Calling the dances will be Barry Goodman, who is returning to the Unicorn Ceilidh stage for the first time this season.

Barry’s relaxed style has made him a popular caller at ceilidh events and festivals all over the country, and his repertoire of dances will be sure to please.

The interval entertainment will be provided by the English Miscellany dance group from St Albans who perform a range of English traditional dances, both in this country and abroad.
