Kathryn currently plays for The Dennis Cuddles Starlight Band (DCSB). There are several local ceilidh bands around and each one has its own unique sound, but all of them are undeniably toe-tapping and dance-worthy.
"Formed in 1981 by, The Dennis Cuddles Starlight Band has a strong heritage of family barn dances across East Anglia. We are all experienced dance musicians and work with a caller to guide you through the dances. Expect a friendly, fun event dancing to stomping British Folk Music with a jazzy twist. Squeezeboxes, saxes, bass and drums will have you itching to leap to the dance floor. We may squeeze in some highland pipes if you are so inclined!"
Head in The Sand Ceilidh Band (HITS)
HITS was formed back in 2019 when Kathryn and her good friend Oliver Simons decided to start a ceilidh band. Unlike many ceilidh bands in the area that used a selection of musicians, HITS agreed that we would endeavour to use the same musicians in our line up to help create consistency and musical brilliance for our audience and ceilidh dancers.
Unfortunately, after three successful and extremely fun ceilidhs, Zoe moved away from the area and Kathryn had some other personal commitments which forced the sad decision to end Head in the Sand as we know it.
We recently found out that our good friend, and amazing guitarist, Steve Makin, sadly passed away after a short illness. He was an extremely talented musician and he, and his music, will be greatly missed. He gave so much life to the band's music.
Whilst the "Head in the Sand Ceilidh Band" no longer exists, a "Head In The Sand" monthly music sessions has continued to thrive at the Ostrich Inn, in Peterborough, with many thanks to Ollie.
