Currently celebrating their 20th anniversary year, Hekety play music inspired by the English tradition, some ancient, some modern, all expertly crafted and arranged to please dancer’s feet and listener’s ears alike.
Rich Arrowsmith (melodeon), Jess Arrowsmith (fiddle), Jo Veal (clarinet) and Gav Davenport (guitar & cittern) weave lilting melody, rich harmony and driving chords underpinned by Nigel Holmes, one of the best bass players in the business. The ceilidh will be called by Martyn Harvey.
Hekety hail from Sheffield, and have graduated from bright young rising stars to veterans of the ceilidh scene over the past two decades.
