Freds Folks Ceilidh Band

for all your ceilidhs, barn dances, folk dances
A few Freds Folks testimonials

Hi Eric, Joy, and the band
We had great fun yesterday so a huge thank you to you all for being splendid and coping with the mixed ages and abilities.
Everyone had a good time and we will be able to make a good donation to our chosen cause thanks to your generosity.
Sincerely hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
With our very best wishes and let’s hope we’ll meet again soon! Sally and family

Hallo, es war gestern wieder so schön, ich habe es so genossen. Euch Alle mit der ganzen Familie in 3 Generationen zu erleben mit der Begeisterung für Musik und Tanz macht viel Freude.
Auch berührt es mich sehr, wenn ich erlebe, was für eine friedliche, harmonische Stimmung zwischen den sich oft fremden Menschen ihr schafft. Das fehlt uns in der "richtigen" Welt oft, dass offene, vorurteilsfreie, positive Aufeinander zu gehen  -  da fängt für mich Frieden an. Wenn das viele Menschen erleben dürften sich postiv zu begegnen, egal ob schwarz, weiß, dick, dünn, .....und sich dadurch ohne Vorurteile kennen zu lernen. 
Vielen vielen Dank. ich freue mich sehr auf das nächste Jahr. Allen wünsche ich eine gute und gesunde Zeit mit vielen schönen Momenten 

It was amazing! Thank you to all of the band. Lots of people have commented to us about how much they enjoyed the music and dancing. Brilliant!

Es war sehr lustig, auch wenn ich mit dem Tanzen häufig überfordert war. Carmen war begeistert, wenn Ihr so etwas noch einmal veranstaltet sind wir dabei.
Sehr originell waren Deine Schwiegereltern, “very british“, bemerkenswert, daß sie so fit sind! Ein gelungener Abend!
Herzlichst Carla

Thank you thank you thank you

Beides lief gut und dann zum krönenden Abschluss des Tages durfte ich Euch genießen und hatte sehr sehr viel Spaß.
Bitte sag deiner Familie und "Oma" und "Opa" ein dickes DANKESCHÖN.
Eine gute Zeit für Jeden wünsche ich.
Bis demnächst,  Jutta

WIR sagen thank you! Es war so schön bei Euch und mit Euch, für die ganze Familie und für unsere Freunde. Ihr schafft das so wunderbar, uns einen Abend abtauchen zu lassen in eine beschwingte andere Welt, das ist echt toll. Und dann noch für einen guten Zweck! Vielen lieben Dank und Grüße an die ganze Familie,

Wedding Anniversary Party
Thanks very much for playing for us on Saturday night at our night of many celebrations. We have had so many people tell us how much they really enjoyed the evening … even the bar staff said it was a pleasure to listen and watch everyone having a good time, especially the amount of young adults joining in. Just thought I’d let you know how much it was appreciated. Thanks again and hope to dance again with you all
Regards C and D

Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Party
I would like to say thank you for all your help before, during and after our Jubilee party, which was very much appreciated. You made a great contribution to a lovely day and a super party. The music and dancing added to the fun. This, in turn, helped to bring together about 100 members of the community. This meant something very special and will, I think, be remembered for a long time. Everyone who attended commented on how lovely it had been and how much they had enjoyed it.
Once again, thank you personally for you contribution. Yours faithfully, L

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. It was great of you to fit us in before your trip to Germany, and to fit us in literally to the ball room at Holme Pierrepont Hall!
We had a wonderful day and it was lovely to be able to do our first dance to the ceilidh and to have all our friends and family join in with the dancing. We have had great feedback from our guests, some of whom had never been to a ceilidh and all of whom enjoyed themselves thoroughly!
Many thanks for making our wedding so special and so much fun.
Kind Regards, A & C May 2012

Thank you for your wonderful performance at our wedding at the end of April. We have had many thank you letters and they all mentioned the dancing! I knew you would be good having seen you before, but you passed all our expectations! G & D

It was a brilliant barn dance. Thank you so much for the wonderful music and calling, you really are very special. Please pass on to the rest of Freds Folks how much we appreciated their musicianship and energy. It was great fun and brought a lot of pleasure. A & I

On behalf of the committee I should like to thank you all for playing once again for our Annual Barn Dance. The largest number of musicians we have ever seen at our events was really impressive. Everyone who came to the dance seemed to be having a wonderful time and it was well attended as always. We all thought the event was a great success. The Bluebird Trust

[From a German tour:] Vielen Dank für den wunderschönen Abend, den ihr mit so viel Liebe und Engagement, sei es die Musik, die tollen Tanzanleitungen, die lockere Übersetzung von Angus, die tollen Gesänge und Tänze, die tolle Musik und dazu auch noch das gute Essen sogar mit Nachtisch und Getränke. Es hat mir sehr viel Spaß gemacht! Super!

Hello both!
A substantial “thank you” for entertaining me, my family and some of my friends at my birthday bash. We all thoroughly enjoyed the occasion and judging by the many effusive comments received, it won’t be long before both of the groups I sing with set up their own “dance parties”, employing your services. I very much appreciate the skills, fun and warmth you injected into the evening to make it a big success….well done all! With warm regards, C

Thank you so very much for being part of a great evening. Hope you enjoyed it as much as everyone else did. Kindest regards, S

Dear Eric, Many thanks again for your wonderful playing our wedding. Seldom has a dance received such a round of applause- all appreciated it and many asked about the band afterwards. Best Wishes, R...

Dear Eric and Joy, THANK YOU so much for a fantastic evening on Saturday. We all really enjoyed ourselves and quite a few people have said how wonderful the band were!!

Thank you and the rest of Freds Folks for playing for my party. You did well to encourage reluctant dancers to enjoy themselves, and pitch the dancing at an appropriate level. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and many of the guests commented on how good the band was.

Everyone danced -from all the little children (Lilly is still talking about the dancing) to our grannies- and that was just lovely to see and to be part of and we all had a lot of fun. So, thank you, we are really glad that we discovered you!

We got so much good feedback from our friends and family who all said what a wonderful time they had and how much they had enjoyed the dancing and the music -so many people commented on how good you are at making people feel they can dance, even if they previously felt that they couldn't.

Dear Freds Folks, thank you so much for playing for us - from our point of view the whole evening went so smoothly and was a great success. Many people have asked about you and were MOST complimentary "encouraging without being forceful" "a perfect caller Joy" "the choice of tunes could not have been better". Everything was much appreciated. A.
