Joining them on this special night will be guitarist Adam Dobres (Daniel Lapp, Ruth Moody, Tony Childs), Oliver Swain (The Duhks, The Bills, The Red Stick Ramblers), Another special guest includes a capella singer Graham Metcalfe, who for the last thirty years has been an important part of the extremely rich traditional music scene in Oxford, where he is known as "Oxford's favourite Yorkshireman".

A Celtic Ceilidh would not be complete without some flashy Irish step-dancing, so they’re very pleased to once again have the award winning dancers from the O’Brien School of Irish Dance.
