Festival Ceilidh Band - Frog on a Bike - The Lockdown Sessions

The Lockdown Sessions

 

At the end of March 2020, Frog on a Bike had a full list of bookings wiped clean by the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. These included no fewer than 4 major festivals over that spring/summer and their resurgence for 2021 was not looking hopefull come the turn of the year.

Not to be out done, we decided to play on during Lockdown and record some of our favourite tunes with  our festival line-up. All in isolation from our homes.

Featuring Edwin, Heather, Paul, Sarah, Tim and Tom, these are the Lockdown Sessions.

Recorded at home by members of the band and sound mixed by Edwin Beasant.

50% of the revenue from the sale of each track will go to Help Musicians.

Cambridge and Ely Ceilidh Band - Frog on a Bike - Velocipede

Velocipede

(from Latin velox, veloc- ‘swift’ + pes, ped- ‘foot’)

 

Velocipede is our most recent studio album. Released in June 2016, it's full of fantastic bouncy tunes, including some of our own, a plethora of different instruments and even a few songs too!

 

Recorded by Anahata at Treewind Studios, Suffolk

 

You can also read a review of this album in The Living Tradition magazine.

“This is certainly a band that I would like to hear live, having enjoyed this studio session.”

The Living Tradition, January 2017


"Listen to their album and dance to your heart's delight" Chris Leslie (Fairport Convention)


This album is absolutely superb. Such lovely music is becoming rarer in England these days; hats off to you for keeping it alive.”
