Muscadin is a ceilidh band, though we also play other kinds of music and enjoy singing together. We have been playing for barn dances, weddings, birthdays and other events for over thirty years. We specialise in making folk dancing enjoyable, especially for people who may not have done much - or any - before.

Most of our gigs are for private functions, but there are also a few events, such as charity fundraisers, which are open to the general public. Our most recent performances were at Shrewsbury House Community Centre, SE18. On Sept 27 we played an evening of music to raise money for the Centre's defibrillator, and on Oct 18 the band were joined by other musicians to play the music for dances by Ignatius Sancho.

Our ceilidh in Winchelsea on March 11 raised £1607 for the Mayoress's charity: Hospice at Home.
