"A large and powerful body - too complicated to itemise - who have gravitated from a diary filler at

Cecil Sharp House Knees-Ups to a first choice, scene-stealing, headlining, barnstorming ceilidh band."


This is how the Committee Band was described in the 1996 Footworks programme, which does, in fact, reflect the band's origins. The Committee Band is a folk dance band which plays for English Ceilidhs. The 'English country music' movement of the late 1970s and early 1980s was the starting point for some members, but the tunes the band plays are as likely to be Italian or Scandinavian as English and arrangements contain elements of all sorts of popular and traditional musics.
