Ceilidh Liberation Front
Ceilidh Liberation Front, London’s most radical and colourful ceilidh band. Subverting and converting the world with their energetic new ceilidh regime, they breathe vigour and vitality into the traditional ceilidh, whilst honouring its roots and traditions.
United under the banner of The Nest Collective, the go-to for worldwide roots music, CLF is the brainchild of Mercury music prize nominee Sam Lee, who brought together some of the finest musicians and charismatic callers, with the most uplifting and inspiring tunes and dances. Their repertoire mixes the traditional with the brand new and sometimes spontaneous! They’ve torn up dancefloors at Southbank Centre, Sadler’s Wells, Glastonbury, and Wilderness, amongst many others. Combining music, dance, and a sprinkling of theatricals, this is ceilidh as you’ve never heard (or seen) it before. Don’t forget your dancing shoes.
