The Falconers

The Falconers - Roger Wilkins on Accordion and Maggie Percy on flute - have been a fixture on the dance circuit since way back in 1974, when the newly formed Falconers Folk Dance Club in Bromyard was formed, and the dancers looked around for some budding new talent to play for them. Forty two years later, and the club still has its band! Roger & Maggie celebrated 40 years or performing together at Chippenham in 2015, and whilst only doing a dozen to fifteen dances a year, plus festivals, still travel all over the country. Whether playing for a Playford Ball - they play for many - or contras with Bromyard resident Joe Hodgson in particular - or indeed any form of English & American folk dance - they love playing, and work especially hard to give bags of lift to make the dancers really dance.
