Blackdown Hills Steel Bands were formed some fifteen years ago
when a group of local people got together to play their first
tentative notes on the beautifully resonant steel drums.
then we have gone from strength to strength and we now have two
adult bands and another comprising talented younger players. We
also have a Samba Band (see contacts page).
steel bands may be hired to play at your event. We play at private
parties, fetes and other charitable events - anywhere in fact
where the mellow sounds and gentle rhythmic flow of our music
would contribute to the ambience you wish to create. We are happy
to take on bookings within a fifty mile radius of our Somerset
base; this includes most of Somerset, Devon and West Dorset.
are also sometimes able to conduct young people's steel band workshops.
Contact the Bookings Secretary on the contacts
page with all your enquiries.
weather may be unpredictable, but we can at least provide the
SOUND OF SUNSHINE!
