Party Band Promotional Demo

As part of the Folk Camps Party Band project a promotional demo has been produced primarily for presenting to festival organisers when pitching the band to them.

There are four tunes on the demo: Shephards Hey (traditional English reel), The Sty at Night (newly written English reel), Highway Carpark (Scottish hopstep) and Edwins Jig (English).  Instruments are guitars, fiddles, melodian, brass, drums, percussion and bass.  Musicians are Andy Glass, Jenny Newman, Chris Jewel, Alfie Glass, Laurie Glass and Aoife Glass.  The video was edited and produced by Andy Glass.

The video is intended to add a little Folk Camps atmosphere to the carefully chosen music. See it on the Party Band Page.
