The next Unicorn Ceilidh is tonight (Friday), with The Pigeon Swing and Barry Goodman calling.

The Pigeon Swing features Dan Quinn (melodeons), Martin Brinsford (harmonica and feet), Paul Burgess (fiddle), Ian Kearey (bass guitar) and Tim Normanton (banjo).

They play a repertoire that is strictly French-Canadian, culled from recordings and transcripts of the old players, but played in a style for English ceilidhs.

Barry has been calling and playing with his own band for many years, and has a huge repertoire of excellent dances.

The music is performed at the Old Town Hall in the High Street, Baldock.

The evening starts at 8pm with doors open at 7.30pm, and finishes about 11.15pm.

Tickets for adults are £10, £9 for seniors over 65 and £6 for children. Entrance is £7 for students and the unwaged.

The first six students before 8pm can hear the music for free.
