Chorley Cakes Folk are a community band. We play for ceilidhs, barn dances, concerts and illustrated talks. Our music comes from many centuries and countries, but draws predominantly from the British Isles.
In the last 12 months, Chorley Cakes Folk have provided ceilidh band and callers for ceilidh dances at a number of locations in Lancashire, Cheshire and further afield. We have also performed a selection of folk and traditional music at markets, festivals and residential homes in the North West. We are available for hire to perform at weddings, parties, fundraisers etc – either as a ceilidh band or to play folk and traditional music for entertainment purposes. Our members come from a wide geographical area and we are happy to play in Preston, Wigan, Warrington, Liverpool, Manchester or other locations in the North West.
You can find more about Chorley Cakes Folk on our other webpages. In particular, you will find more about what we offer as a ceilidh band on our ceilidh page. More about playing folk and traditional music for entertainment purposes can be found on our performance page. Ceilidh is a very dynamic form of entertainment. The best way to experience it is live – but we have included a few clips of recorded music on our music page to give you an idea of the kind of music we play. You can find some pictures of our ceilidh dances and folk and traditional music performances on our gallery page. Our about us page has some background information about the instruments we play, how you can get involved in the band etc. If you can’t find the information you want or you would like to make a booking enquiry please use the details on the contact us page to send us an email.
