Styx of Stroud first performed in public in Autumn 2013. Since then we have appeared all over the place, up and down the country – folk festivals, fundraising fetes, dance-outs with other sides, wassails, and (briefly!) in BBC TV’s adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s novel The Casual Vacancy.
At present, we number about thirty or so dancers and musicians, but are always ready to welcome newcomers. No previous experience is necessary to join as a dancer – all we ask is a basic sense of rhythm, a willingness to learn and a sense of humour. Our musicians include players of the accordion, banjo, fiddle, flute, mandolin, melodeon, saxophone and tin whistle, plus some very fine drummers – but we are always happy to welcome more musicians. So please come along and join us!
