We are a group of musicians and dancers that are enthusiastic about the Celtic revival and Cornish music and dance in particular. Bolingey is a hamlet just in-land of Perranporth, on the North coast of Cornwall. It is a village with a rich history, including a September Fayre and is an example of the kind of community entertainment from which the band & dancers draw their inspiration. We provide a variety of performances, for weddings, anniversaries, and festivals. We perform as a dance band, providing a caller and demonstration dancers.With their infectious humour the group’s reputation and popularity has grown steadily and they have raised thousands of pounds for Cornish charities.
Performing from the main stages at Lorient’s “Festival Interceltique”, at “Boardmasters” and at the “Royal Cornwall Show” and at “Falmouth International Shanty Festival” they have entertained crowds at these and most iconic venues in the southwest. They have shown themselves to be equally at home singing on elaborate festival sound stages; on the deck of the “Cutty Sark”; in nursing homes; at weddings, funerals and “Memory Cafes”; and their school choral workshops encourage children’s singing.
The Cornish based Bolingey Troyl Band has been together for over 20 years and we perform celtic music and dance designed and devised to suit your chosen event.
