The Band was formed in early 1977. In 1979 it won an award from B.B.C. Radio Solent as the most popular Barn Dance Band and received similar awards in 1980 and 1982. At that time half of the band lived in Bursledon, a village on the bank of the River Hamble, a few miles to the East of Southampton. In recent years, the band has also done a great many Folk Festival performances, including Sidmouth, Chippenham, Whitby, Bognor Easter Festival, Gosport, Isle-of-Wight, Winchester, Wimborne and Towersey festivals, as well as smaller local festivals.
