Coracree is a contemporary contra dance band that melds a mixture of traditional Celtic, Old Time, European and Original music played with an improvisational twist!

Featuring the always lively and playful fiddling of Jane Rothfield, the driving swing of Bill Quern on tenor banjo, mandolin & melodeon, Sarah Gowan’s inventive guitar stylings and the melodic and rhythmic stand-up bass playing of Allan Carr. These guys rock!
