Triptych is a new ceilidh band who draw their material from a variety of sources; largely English and English-style tunes (including some self-penned), but their search for awesome tunes has also taken them further in to Europe – their set list currently includes a waltz from Belgium and a Swedish schottis! The band will be playing for the Sunday evening ceilidh so save some energy for the last dance of the festival.

Triptych is a new ceilidh band who made their debut at the Anchor gardens, as part of Sidmouth Folk Week 2011. They draw their material from a variety of sources; largely English and English-style tunes (including some self-penned), but their search for awesome tunes has also taken them further in to Europe – their set list currently includes a waltz from Belgium and a Swedish schottis!

Triptych is: Jamie Huddlestone (melodeon, guitar), Cat Kelly (fiddle, flute) and Oli Matthews (saxophone, melodeon). The variety of instrumental combinations makes for very interesting listening, and the fact that all three are seasoned ceilidh musicians means that the music is irresistible to the feet as well as the ears!

“One of the best bands I saw all week [at Sidmouth Folk Week]” — Richard Arrowsmith; Hekety, Glorystrokes, The Melrose Quartet
