Styx of Stroud first performed in public in Autumn 2013. Since then we have performed at a range of events, including folk festivals, fundraising fetes, dance-outs with other sides, wassails, and in BBC TV’s adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s novel The Casual Vacancy.
At present, we number about twenty dancers and ten 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 to join in. 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 and join us!
