25 April 2017 Downtrodden String Band
A longstanding favourite Folk Train performers and they always satisfy us with their quality and style. As usual,  we can expect from them some highly entertaining Folk-Americana - string band music from the Appalachian Mountains with some fine harmony singing
23 May 2017
Strings and Reeds
Another welcome return for Clare, Brian and Phil who play Scottish, Irish and English music for dancing - if there's room in the aisle! - on button accordion, piano accordion and fiddle, interspersed with some fine vocals..
27 June 2017
Sheffield City Morris
once again, Sheffield City Morris and their guest performers are the heralds of summer, bringing us their world famous and entertaining mix of music, song and dance, well suited to an al fresco performance on a balmy summer evening. Fingers crossed for decent weather, in view of last year's problem!
25 July 2017
Feet First
As long as the weather is good we can welcome the return again of the outstanding Feet First Appalachian clog dancers, based in Chesterfield. In recent years they have given us admirable al fresco performances, along with some excellent musical sessions on the train.
22 or 29 August 2017
(Date decided to be 29th)
Treebeard
Once again we have the group which was our regular favourites for some time. In agreement with their on-line description I can say that they perform “a clever blend of originals & cover material, made all the more enjoyable by the friendly and fun loving attitude on stage”.

Yorkshire Tea Bags Skiffle Band
Last time we were very grateful that they had recovered from an awkward situation they had suffered previously and had been able to restore themselves to being ready for selection, so we can be grateful again. I can say without doubt that you will be really appreciative and very responsive when the band encourages your participation.
