Traditional Irish and Scottish music and sing-a-long English folk will be on offer at Mountbatten next month.

The Island’s ceilidh band, Slainte Va, will takeover Mountbatten’s John Cheverton Centre with songs, dances, jigs and reels on Thursday 6th February.

The band combines traditional music with well-known covers, using its unique blends of fiddle, guitar, flute and bodhran.

“We hope to entertain everyone with a wide range of tunes and songs and we are really looking forward to the evening.”

The band has pledged to donate 100% of its proceeds from CD sales on the night to Mountbatten.
