band has increased in numbers and diversity of instruments since our
humble beginnings in 1986.
We started with one melodeon player and a concertina and have transformed
Black Pig Wall of Sound comprising of Melodeons, Concertinas, Banjos,Mandolins,Guitars,
Fiddles, Flutes and Recorders,Drums and Percussion to name but a few...
The majority of our dancers play some sort of instrument so whilst they
dancing, they join in with the band.
first CD, Roll
a Ferret for Jesus was produced in 2002 and was originally
conceived so that the musicians could get drunk while the dancers practiced.
However, the forces of creation greater than exploding suns absorbed
the energies of the universe and brought together a subtle blend
of ambiance v irreverence (That's what we tell everybody)
Following on from the huge success of our first CD Roll A Ferret for
Jesus,is our second CD Three

Techno and Soundscapes
