English Ceilidh (ECeilidh)

Dance to Random with Mike Courthold presented by ruffCeilidhs

In 2015 Random celebrated its 15th anniversary by playing many major Festivals & Ceilidhs at the end of which they decided to take a break for a while. One member then retired, another relocated a long distance away which would have made rehearsals difficult while the others decided to take time out to explore different projects. But now they’re back with a refreshed line-up, having been extremely fortunate to have been joined by Penny Kempson on Fiddle, Adam Courthold on Drums, Dean Clay on Bass Guitar & Jack Hogsden on Electric and Accoutic Guitars. They join Paul Nye on Melodeons, who is from the original line-up of the band, passing on the style of the band and tune repertoire onto the new members, along with all members bringing new tunes to the band. In addition to new arrangements of existing material there are new tunes, many of which have been written by Penny, Paul and Aaron.
