'For the good folk of Prestwood and beyond'
Originally formed in 1995 to play for the famous Lighthouse end of week barn dance, The Wick Trimmers play a variety of music for both listening and dancing. Mixing traditional Irish, English and
Scots music with our own self penned pieces, and foot stomping jigs and reels with evocative slower airs.
The six piece band consists of (left to right) Gerard Hallows on accordions, mandolin, banjo and mouth organ; Pauline Hallows on bodhran; (and formerly, Ken Foot on fiddle, before sadly, he passed away in September of 2016); Philippa Wallin on flutes and whistles; Colin Veysey on guitar and mandolin; John Stevens on bass and George Rivas who calls for the dances.
Here's a piece called Jane's Jig written by Colin for the birthday party of a good friend of ours and some footage of us in action (and joined by our friend Peter Cross on mandolin) with some bluegrass styled music at MALT's Trumped Up evening on Friday 13 July 2018. Thanks to Linda Cross for the filming and editing.
