LDbandStG2009

The Lizzie Dripping 'Big Band', Town Hall, Sheffield, St George's Day 2009.
L-R: Dave (fiddle), Mike (tenor saxophone), Celia (melodeon), Steve (melodeon), Paul (melodeon), Brenda (tambourine)

Our musician Mike Steel died on 16th July 2011. We will all miss him terribly.

Lizzie Dripping's music is drawn from a wide range of folk and music-hall traditions. We use tunes from England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, France, USA and Canada. This eclectic mix gives our music a bright and cheerful sound guaranteed to get your feet a-tapping!

Our current core group of regular musicians is supplemented by our guests - friends and former Lizzie Dripping musicians whom we can call upon when we have a big event and need a big sound.

All our musicians are highly experienced and know just how to play for dancing. It's much more than simply playing the right notes at the right time! Nor is it just background music. We work with the dancers at all times to give them the musical lift which makes for a spirited and engaging performance.
