Frog on a Bike

One of the Cambridgeshire flatlands’ finest folk-rock ceilidh bands, Frog on a Bike is a hugely popular name on the professional East Anglian ceilidh scene. Composers and creative interpreters of traditional tunes, Frog on a Bike’s frenetic energy, distinctive sound and driving rhythm is guaranteed to get you up and dancing. “[Their] seemingly endless surplus energy should perhaps be harnessed and channelled back to the national grid!” (Richard Penguin for FATEA, Folk East 2022). With a luscious 6 piece line-up of melodeon, recorder, fiddle and mandolin, backed by a riotous rhythm section of bass, drums and electric guitar, you won’t be disappointed you came along for a ride with this “bit of treasure” (Sue Marchant) from the Fens. “Just what English Ceilidh dancing is all about!” (Hastings Jack in The Green 2023)” Calling for the Friday night ceilidh at Ely Folk Festival will be Ollie Simons, one of the most charismatic and in demand young callers around. Ollie’s calling is infectious, you can’t help but dance with a grin on your face! So, get yourself along to our late night Friday night ceilidh for fun, frolics and frenetic dancing (no experience needed!).
