The Shropshire Heroes play lively traditional dance music from Shropshire. Guaranteed to make your Barn Dance or Ceilidh go with a swing!
The band was put together by Neil Brookes and Tony Weatherall after they recorded their cd, The Whitchurch Hornpipe, which focused on tunes from a series of old music books discovered in the village of Ash, North Shropshire. It seemed like a good idea to get people dancing to these tunes again!
From a small four piece line-up of melodeon, fiddle, piano and percussion, going up to the full, seven-piece, big-band, we have a flexible line-up suitable for any occasion.
