Excited that Bottle Bank Band are to be a part of the brilliant Swaledale Festival.
“Infectious jigs, reels and hornpipes brilliantly played by a quartet from the North-East of England – a region which enjoys a centuries old tradition of fiddle playing. The glorious sound of the four fiddles, rich in harmony and captivating arrangements, is underpinned by an instinctive understanding of traditional playing.”

Four exceptional musicians collaborate to create a new, exciting take on traditional fiddle music.
Bottle Bank Band brings together the fiddling talents of Sophy Ball, Chloe Jones, David Jones and Stewart Hardy. The glorious sound of these four fiddles, rich in harmony and captivating arrangements, is underpinned by an instinctive understanding of traditional playing, which gives voice and space to the musicality and talent of the individual players.
Their repertoire is firmly rooted in, but not limited to, the North East of England and its centuries’ old tradition of fiddle playing. Individually the members of Bottle Bank Band have all established reputations as outstanding musicians, and by coming together in this combination they have created a new, exciting musical landscape.

4 weeks agoIsn't this beautiful? Shepherds Dene is such a peaceful location for our first Advanced Fiddle course back in person since restrictions eased. This will be a very small, intimate course, and there are just three places remaining.🎻 The material will include a couple of tunes to challenge your technique, tax your brain and torture your fingers as well as a whole batch of beautiful melodies where the emphasis will be stylistic interpretation. Evenings will offer an opportunity to play tunes together in a session, something which we have all sorely missed. 🎶 Fancy joining us?
