Treacle City Dance Band hail from the villages on the slightly Northern fringes of the Derby borders! They come together in the village of Milford (which is known as Treacle City – and if you want to know why, ask them, and be prepared for numerous answers!)
The band comprises Alan Squires, John Adams, Michelle Short and Pete Bullock – all members of the Derbyshire Volunteers as well as countless other folk bands spanning many years and styles.
They’re all wonderful players, and great friends to the festival, so we really hope you’ll enjoy joining them for a lunchtime bop!
Caller for the dances will be Vicky Johnson – a great caller, dancer, and another friend to the festival for many years (Vicky called for the first festival ceilidh in 2007!)
