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
