More information about Fearless Folk

Fearless Folk began playing together and quickly realised they were on to something good.

They play a wide range of tunes, both self-penned and traditional in often unusual settings provided by the backline of bass, bouzouki and drums.

Working to blend disco, reggae, ska, and even bhangra influences with their Irish, English and European heritage, Fearless Folk is a band that never fails to make people smile and dance.

Fearless Folk, with their driving beats and memorable melodies, are sure to be well-received at corporate and private events as well as festivals, both with and without a dance caller.

Energetic, exciting and exhilarating.

“These guys were just fab as entertainment for our wedding day. When you have a mix of young, old and young at heart, it’s so hard to please everyone, but please everyone they did. With their infectious beats, comedic interludes and toe-tapping tunes, Ben and co brought energy, fun and laughter to the dance-floor. The dress code for guests was an optional touch of purple in memory of my mum, and I was really touched that they turned up in purple ties too. What lovely guys! We had a great time boogieing into the early hours as we added on a funky disco too.
 Thanks Fearless Folk! You’re Priceless!"

“Thanks for a wonderful evening at Phoenix Ceilidh. We had so much positive feedback from our regular ceilidh goers who had not come across you before that you will be at the top of the list when we are booking bands for next year. Hopefully we will see you at some of the larger festivals soon.”

“Ben calls an excellent ceilidh with easy to follow instructions that people with no prior experience can pick up, but are still exciting for the experienced ceilidh goer, with many places to add flourishes. He calls a variety of types of dance: waltzes, polkas, reels and the occasional Israeli dance. He includes popular moves such as stripping the willow, the basket and threading the needle. Fearless Folk ceilidhs are called with enthusiasm and an excellent sense of humour, making the dances fun for all ages, from children to retired. I must have been to half a dozen Fearless Folk ceilidhs this year and have enjoyed every one.”

“Ben and his band provided a hell of a surprise party for my mum’s 60th! Their ability to integrate with our extended friends and family, both in terms of the ‘surprise’ moment, the food and the speeches was superb, and really meant we were able to make it personal to mum. She hasn’t stopped beaming since, and commented that having a ceilidh meant that we could enjoy the dance on our own terms, and also chat to reunited friends and family with some excellent background music. From young to old, everyone had a blast!”

“Thanks very much to Fearless Folk for playing at the EAUC Conference event at Lancaster University last week. The Ceilidh was excellent and the feedback from delegates was that they thoroughly enjoyed your performance.  Many thanks indeed for helping to make a really good evening."
