At the top of the English Ceilidh scene for more than 20 years, The Ironmasters are a highly influential ceilidh band who play traditional music and original compositions in their own distinctive style.

Building upon a solid guitar, bass and drum rhythm you will dance to melodeon and saxophone melodies, spiced with harmonica, songs and innovative sax solos. The Ironmasters provide a varied sound that is great for dancing to, or listening to.

They are:

Alistair Gillies: Saxophones, Recorders and Whistles.

Edwin Beasant: Melodeons, Contra Bass Bugle.

Baz Parkes: One and Two Row Melodeons, Harmonica, Caller.

Steev Hall: Electric guitar.

Ray Archer: Electric Bass Guitar.

Nick Beck: Drums, Percussion.

The Ironmasters were formed in 1986 by musicians of the Border Morris and North West dance teams: The Ironmen and Severn Gilders from Ironbridge in Shropshire.
