The Giggleswick Temperance Band are a 5 piece group based in the Yorkshire Dales. They play for ceilidhs and barn dances at weddings, private functions, fund raisers and folk festivals and any other event where dancing to great music and caller is required. As well as playing for dancing the GTB’s have a wide repertoire of songs and tunes suitable for concerts or folk clubs.
The band members have all been involved in the music scene for many more years than they care to recall and the breadth of their experience is evident in the quality and variety of their music which ranges from the traditional through jazz standards to ragtime and everything in between.
Band members are:
Steve Keene: Fiddle
Mike Harding: Mandolin, tenor banjo, mouth organ and vocals.
Clare Douglas: Keyboards, violin and vocals.
Gaye Woollard: Percussion
Andy Service: Accordion and fretless bass
