Reeltime Ceilidh Band

Reeltime Ceilidh Band came into the studio to talk about a project called Furness Youth Radio as well as playing their music and talking about appearing on stage at the Christmas lights switch on in Barrow Town Square on Saturday 22nd November 2008.

The line up is Karl on the Melodian, James on the Drums, Sarah on the flutem Hayley also on flute and Anna on the violin.

There were plenty of text messages coming into the studio in support of them and overall a fantastic atmosphere was created in the studio whilst appearing live on the show.

It came to light that Sarah would like to be a radio presenter when she leaves school and I surprised her by allowing her to sit in the big chair in front of all the controls and let her finish off the show.

Two videos were filmed of them performing live in the studio and they are both below.

The christmas light switch on was fun for all the family, especially the kids. I would like to say thank-you to these young musicians for giving my 2 young kids a perfect idle to admire.
