The Broken String Band are an integral part of Spank The Planks and provide the live music to the performances. The band play traditional string music known as 'Old Timey', somewhat akin to bluegrass, on fiddles, banjo, guitar, mandolin and bass which together produce the electrifying Appalachian music originating from the mountains of North America.

The Broken String Band have released a CD featuring many of the tunes that accompany the dancing. Copies can be purchased at performances or by contacting John. CD’s cost 12.00, including postage and packing. See the 'Contact Us' page for further details.

If you would like to book the band for a live performance - a ceilidh, fair, festival or barn dance - just get in touch with John, our Band Coordinator. Again, see the 'Contact Us' page for further information
